The teacher in Year 5 is Miss O’Malley and our teaching assistant is Mrs Smith.
This year we will be travelling all the way back to the Anglo Saxons and examine the evidence for how they lived. We are also being very scientific learning about life cycles, materials, space, forces and of course about ourselves.
Wow! Then there is English, Maths, R.E.
Over the year we will look at the Mayan civilisation and compare South American countries to our country.
Our literacy lessons this year will take a text – based focus, starting with the magical world of Harry Potter and then coming to a Year 5 near you, “DRACULA”. We will be reading other fantastic books and using them to put some great grammar into our sentences: parenthesis, colons, semi-colons and more!
In maths we will be mastering all methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will study all things fractions and be able to add, multiply and divide them, this will help us with our decimal and percentage work too!
In RE we’ll be learning lots about ourselves from stories in the Bible, we will use these to base some of our writing on. Also, we will look at what mission means, and how some special people are following in the ways of Jesus.
