This term, our theme has been Extreme Earth, where we have learnt about mountains, extreme weather and the most extreme areas on Earth: we were able to design and create mountain habitats as well as write amazing diary entries about surviving an avalanche. In English, we studied The Mountaineer who overcame an Avalanche by David Long and the children wrote some brilliant stories about friends who survived a tragic experience whilst stranded on a mountain – they all managed to include expanded noun phrases and relative clauses – well done to Year 5! In Maths, we have been learning about adding and subtracting large numbers using formal written methods (column addition and column subtraction) and applying this to solve problems including money, distance and time. We also began interpreting data on line graph on Numbers Day, which the children were all enthusiastic to participate in.
This term, our theme has been India, where we have learnt where India is, Indian art and the partition of India, which the Year 5 pupils were incredibly engaged in. We were able to learn about Indian and Punjabi culture at Kala Sangham in Bradford – the pupils were fantastic bhangra dancers! We created our mandala art and wrote a non-chronological report about the partition. In English, we studied The Night Diary and the children wrote some descriptive diary entries from a child crossing the Indian-Pakistani border in 1947. In Maths, we have been concentrating on Place Value and now we can all read, write, order and compare numbers above 10000 and round to the nearest 100,000!
This term, our theme has been Infinity and Beyond, where we have learnt about Earth and Space as well as the journey to the moon and outer space: we were able to experience walking on the moon in 3-D when The WonderDome mobile planetarium visited school – a thoroughly enjoyable experience for the children! We created our own rockets and learnt songs about space. In English, we studied The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers and the children wrote some amazing letters offering advice to a boy who wanted to fly to space. In Maths, we have been concentrating on Place Value and now we can all read, write, order and compare numbers above 10000!
Welcome to year five! Our teaching staff are Mr Preece (5AP) and Miss Chatterton (5LC). Our teaching support staff are Miss Robina, Miss Mahila and Mr Ali. We set off to a great start this year during our first theme topic of the year 'Infinity and Beyond'. We also thoroughly enjoyed our 'Shipwrecked!', 'Extreme Earth', 'Victorians' and 'India' topics. The whole of year five loved Art week.
This final summer term, we will be learning all about Egypt.
