Welcome to Year 5

Autumn Term 2
Welcome back! We hope that you have had a wonderful, restful half-term break and are ready to get back to it! We have lots of things to look forward to in the build up to Christmas!
During this half-term, our English will be based on a high quality text. As in previous years, some of the work that we do is prediction so we won't share the name of the book just yet! We do know, however, that you will really like this as it is a beautiful piece of fiction.
In Maths we will begin by focusing on multiplication and division before we move on to fractions.
For our History focus we will be considering 'Why did the Ancient Mayans change the way they lived?' The History Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below.
In Science our focus will be a biology-based one. We will be focusing on living things and their habitats as well as life cycles of various plants and animals. The Science Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below.
In Art, we will focus on painting and mixing. In music, we will explore some of the sounds from the Ancient Egyptians and try to link to our History and the Ancient civilisations where possible. In Computing, our focus will be on spreadsheets.
RE will focus on Belonging, before we head to Advent and Christmas -which will be upon is before we know it!
P.E. for Class 5 will be each Wednesday and Friday and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days.
A Homework Timetable is attached below..
