Welcome to Lime Class!
Year 5 is an exciting year, full of opportunities for the children. We have School Council, sporting clubs, residential trips and much more! Over the coming year they will be covering lots of interesting topics:
Term 1: Earth and Space
Term 2: Anglo Saxons
Term 3: Mayans
Term 4: Forces
Term 5: North America
Term 6: Properties and changes in materials
At the beginning of the year, we try to transition into Year 5 by being superb role models for the school. They are almost at the very top of the school and need to be prepared for that responsibility in Year 6. Work needs to be presented neatly and we always need to try our hardest. (Even when something is tricky).
In English, we will be studying a range of non-fiction and fiction texts. Our first book will be themed around our Space topic! We will be discussing the key features of the different texts and creating our own masterpieces. Grammar and punctuation are key in understanding the different genres and texts. Learning this will be a priority in English lessons so that we can improve our writing.
Maths is challenging in Year 5 as we begin with recapping our Year 4 knowledge and slowly transitioning into more sophisticated methods. We will be exploring statistics, multiplication and division fractions, perimeter and area decimals and percentages and geometry. Gaining key skills to enable us to master these topics is important, as well as solving multi step problems to gain more fluency and reasoning.
