Hello and welcome to Year 5. For this academic year the teaching team are:
Mrs Chance and Mr Boxall and we will be supported by Miss Lockton.Mrs Chance will work every morning and teach Maths and English and Mr Boxall will work every afternoon teaching the wider curiculum.
This term our topic is Space and we have some fantastic trips lined up, so watch this space....
English - We will read high quality texts including: Cosmic by Frank Cotrell Boyce and George's secret key to the universe by Stephen and Lucy Hawkins. We will use technology to underpin and present our writing outcomes so keep your eyes peeled for our imovies and green screen clips!
Maths - We will continue to develop knowledge and understanding of place value to 1million. Children will also solve rich mathematical tasks to help develop problem solving skills. We will then secure methods for the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
In science, we will explore the movement of the Earth and other planets in relation to the sun. Design Technology (DT), Computing, Art, Music and French will all be explored through the topic of Space. We hope to use our coding knowledge in computing to program space buggies that we will design and make in DT.
