Year 5, we cover a range of exciting topics such as ‘Beast Creator’ and ‘Pharaohs’ that help the children to develop new skills as they progress through upper school. 5HL will have an exciting year as they develop their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.

 

The books that will be covered in Year 5 are Kensuke’s Kingdom, The Firework Maker’s Daughter and Holes. These books will allow children to use their imagination and help to provide lots of interesting things for them to write about. The children will learn lots of new writing skills and they will also have lots of opportunities to develop their reading skills using accelerated reader. 

In maths, children will be taught using ‘Maths- No Problem’ which encourages children to develop a deeper level of understanding through a range of engaging activities. Maths- No Problem encourages children to master the skills in the national curriculum and gives questions and problems in a range of styles. This will help children to read and understand maths problems on a deeper level.

The topics that will be covered this year allow the children to make links between their learning and the world around them. The children will also learn about different faiths and beliefs in RE, French during their MFL lessons and a range of skills and sports in PE lessons.

Class values are very important in 65HL. In our first week in Year 5, we created our class charter. We included rights from the UNCRC including the right to have an opinion (Article 12) and the right to a clean and safe environment (Article 24).  

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be collected on a Tuesday.

 

What their teacher says:

My class are a conscientious, enthusiastic and hardworking group of young people who have settled into Year 5 extremely well. I look forward to sharing this year with them so we can share new experiences together.
Mrs Layton

What the children say:

"This year we have been learning many things, but my favourite so far has been our minibeasts topic. We recently wrote a report about the life of our favourite creature. In maths, we are studying place value. It is sometimes a challenge but it helps us learn."
Keira

What the children say:

"So far this year in Year 5 we have written a narrative about an explorer and we have learned new literacy skills. In maths, we have been identifying numbers up to a million and making number patterns. In RE, we are learning about Ramadan and Eid-al-Fitr which has been very interesting."
