Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the Easter holiday with all that lovely weather. Here is some information for those who’d like to know what we will be learning in Y5 this term. In Literacy we identify the characteristic features of persuasive writing, we study The Ghost of Thomas Kempe as part of the unit ‘Older Literature’ and we explore narrative poetry. In Numeracy we use the chunking method to carry out division calculations, we learn about ratio and proportion and also how to use protractors to measure angles. The Science topic, Lifecycles, looks at how plants and animals reproduce and the importance of reproduction to the survival of the species. In D & T we examine photograph frames to find ways in which structures can be made stable, before making a free-standing photograph frame for a particular person. The lives of Victorian children is the focus of our History topic. We research changing attitudes towards children and the people who are remembered for their part in these changes. A visit to the National Glass Centre has been organised for Thursday 7th July where pupils can make a glass fused mosaic which they can take home.
