Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The summer term is here! We've had a great first week back after the Easter holidays and I'm looking forward to all the exciting lessons, trips and activities we have planned this half term.

 

Summer Term Topics

 

Image result for USA

 

In geography, we will be studying North America. We will begin by mapping the countries, then take a look at the states of the USA. Further to this, we'll research the contrasting climates of two states and discover the challenges different types of weather can bring.

In science, we will take a look at animals, including humans. Focusing on our maths skills, we will collect data related to height and hand span and plot graphs of these to look for patterns.

 

Reading

We expect all our children to read every evening and at weekends. In Year 5, 20 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  Please ensure you sign the reading log to confirm this reading is taking place.
