2022-2023 Year 5 Summer Term
We continue to work hard in year 5 and cannot believe that we will soon be year sixes
Our topic this term is Ancient Greece. We will be entering a discovery of gods and goddesses, Olympic sports, discoveries and philosophical thinking that continue to influence us in the modern world.
The Barnabus Project has been our Take One Book inspiring us to write our own stories of hidden labs and amazing escape. Moving forward we will be enjoying Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and exploring Myths and Legends. Our writing in year 5 has started to show fantastic developments and children are learning to slow down, focusing on the detail of WHAT they write rather than the amount. Accuracy in writing is vital in year 5.
In maths we are gaining an understanding of perimeter, area and statistics. We continue to practise times tables and develop our confidence in this area of maths celebrating with children who make achievements in their Times Tables Rock Star account in celebration assembly on a Friday. Visiting the Times Tables Rock Star website 3 times a week is suggested as homework and an excellent way to get better at multiplication whilst also having fun!
