Here's what Year 5 will be learning this half term:

We have lots of exciting learning happening this first half term and have started off with an exciting first week seeing one another again. We will be reminding ourselves of how we learn and the expectations in school along with some new changes. Year 5 will be looking into mental health, British Values, learning behaviours, body & mind and team building games during their first week. During the rest of the term, Year 5 will be learning about Pharaohs and Ancient Egypt in topic, covering a variety of exciting novels in literacy and reminding ourselves of place value and formal and mental strategies of the four operations in math. 

 

Please keep checking our class page for pictures of our learning and up to date messages from the class!

 

Check out some of the fun we've been having with team building games!

HOW TO HELP YOUR CHILD AT HOME

Subject

 

How your child can support their progress at home

Literacy

 

  • Ask your child about their individual targets. All children should be using vocabulary to support the reader (full stops, capital letters, commas and more!).
  • Read through your child’s homework with them to ensure it makes sense before handing it in. 
  • Encourage your child to use a variety of vocabulary in their writing to make it more interesting.
  • Practice spellings every week and put them into sentences.
  • Read with your children daily and write in their reading record.

Maths

 

  • Ensure your child is confident with their times tables – this will support all areas of mathematical learning.
  • Ask your child daily what they have learnt in mathematics and see if they can explain the method they have learnt.  This will help to consolidate their learning.  It is also important that your child can apply their knowledge to word problems.
  • Use TT Rockstars and SAM Learning to encourage hands- on learning.

Science

 

Research their current topic in science and see if there are any cool experiments to do at home!

History/ Geography

 

Research their current topic in history or geography and help them to understand where these events would go on a timeline

RE

 

We are learning about Judaism, so you could help them research more about the religion.

Music

 

Explore a range of music with your child to see which they are most interested in.  You can also look at the origins of the music.
