Term 3

Our theme is ‘All you need is love’ where we shall be creating and producing an assembly for Year 5 parents and carers to come along and watch. Date TBC.

In History we will be linking with RE when looking at the history of Islam.

This term in Science we will be looking at ‘Animals including Humans’. We will be learning about the changes that occur as humans develop to old age from a scientific perspective. Children will be creating posters and timelines to explain their understanding of the human life cycle and the changes that happen throughout, and comparing these to animals.

In English, we are very much looking forward to studying the novel Skellig by David Almond with our classes.

Our maths foci for term 3 are: fractions, decimals and percentages.

PE – gymnastics in 5SW, dance in 5BK and ten weeks of swimming for pupils in 5JM.

Homework will be in the form of a sheet of twelve activities. We ask that the children complete two activites a week and that an adult signs the sheet when each activity is completed.

Please see our Term 3 curriculum newsletter for further curriculum information.

Please ensure reading planners are up to date and that children read at least 4 times a week. Can we also ask that children complete the weekly writing task found in their planners.

Thank you from the Year 5 Team
