Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mr R Hewson
Classroom Assistant: Miss Woodier
Welcome to Year 5! We hope you that you have a fantastic year! This is what we will be learning about:
We will cover a range of different fiction and non-fiction topics. We will be using Talk for Writing to help us enjoy and understand stories, then use that knowledge to plan and write our own. We will practise different genre of non-fiction, such as persuasive writing, newspaper reports, discussion texts, explanation texts. We will also be developing our poetry writing skills!
Alongside this we will also be practising grammar skills. These will include: developing our use of complex sentences and relative clauses, parenthesis and using different types of punctuation such as colons and commas.
We will also read different texts throughout the year; our first class text will be War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.
We have focused on place value this half term, such as understanding the value and order of whole numbers and decimals. We have also worked on addition and subtraction, using the column method to ensure fluency. We have also worked on problem solving and reasoning skills when adding and subtracting too.
International Primary Curriculum
We are very excited to be following the International Primary Curriculum. Our first full topic is called Bake It!, and is focused heavily on Science and the theme of separating materials. Further information can be found here:
