Welcome to Year 5

 

Blume Class – Mrs Mansbridge

Kinney Class – Miss Gibbens

Autumn 1

Our topic this half term is History related: How did the Industrial Revolution change our world? The children will be learning all about life during the Industrial Revolution and how people lived and worked during these times.

In Maths, the main focus will be place value including: reading and writing numbers up to a million, reading and writing roman numerals, and rounding to the nearest thousand. The children will practise their skills through fluency questions, which they will then apply to reasoning and problem-solving activities.

In English, Year 5 will be learning how to entertain the reader with suspense and mystery. We will focus our reading and writing on the book Street Child. We will be learning a range of writing skills and GPS techniques to support our writing. In addition to this the children will be given opportunities to apply their reading skills through a range of reading activities related to Street Child.

Homework expectations in Year 5:

We will be setting homework based on the school’s ‘Must, Should and Could’ policy.

For example, here are some suggestions:

Must – children must read at least three times per week. This should be recorded each time in their individual reading records, signed by the observing adult and then returned to school. Reading records should be updated as regular as possible and returned each day to ensure children are receiving recognition as part of the school’s reading challenge as part of Milton Park’s ‘Year of Reading’.

Should  – children should practise their times tables as frequently as possible, using the school’s suggested website https://tt.serveweb.co.uk/new/

Could – children could create a piece of art work, research a topic or complete their own independent study based on the ongoing topic in class. This could be brought into school and celebrated for taking the time to improve their learning during their own time.
