Diamond Academy-23


In 5NO we have several exciting topics to look forward to - starting with ‘Allotments’.

This unit allows children to grow their own vegetables, explore the world of farming and choose their own ingredients to make an innovative soup. This will be followed by ‘Off With Her Head!’ where we will be delving into our rich history; and ‘Stargazers’, where we will looking up and exploring the world above our heads. Children will be given creative homework tasks and can earn points and rewards for completing them. In Year 5, it is interesting to see the learning that carries on at home.

During the year, the children will be building on their understanding of reading, writing and maths. Through our maths lessons, children will be learning a variety of skills including: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and many more. The children will be applying these skills to answer reasoning and real-life problems.

In English, children will write for a variety of purposes and audiences, using the skills that they have learnt to engage and interest the reader. They are encouraged to read at home every night to further their fluency and understanding of a text.
