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.
English - This half term our topic is Ancient Egypt. We will be writing portal stories where the characters are sent back in time. We will use historical facts that we have learnt in our History lessons to make our writing come alive. We will get into role as Howard Carter discovering the tomb of the boy king and write a 1st person recount. We will examine the uses of semi-colons and how these can be used in our writing.
Maths - This half term we will focus on using all four operations to solve multi-step worded problems involving money and measurements.
Our wider topic will be Ancient Egypt; Geography, Computing, Art, Music and French will all be explored through this topic.

Spellings are handed out on Mondays and tested on Fridays. Children have time to practise in class and they can bring a copy home to practise if they wish.
In the Autumn term our topic was Space. We had a great time at the Novium Museum and South Downs Planetarium. Take a look at our slideshow:
