Year 5

 

Summer Term

In Religion we will be studying Life in the Risen Lord in Summer 1 and then throughout Summer 2, we will be learning about other world faiths.  Both of these topics will give us the opportunity to reflect and develop our thinking skills as we consider teh importance of special prayers such as the Our Father and the Rosary.  As May is the month of Mary, we will be decorating our class Mary tree, honouring Our Lady.

In our topic lessons, we will be learning about the Victorians and the Ancient Greeks.  Our teachers are very excited about teaching these topics as there are lots of interesting things for us to discover.  We will also be doing lots of writing based on these topics.

Our Science lessons will focus on change and properties of materials and to support us in this learning, we will be going to Loreto Grammar School and visiting one fo their Science labs!

Our Literacy and Maths lessons will be jam packed as we learn lots of new skills in preparation for our move to Year 6!

Please ensure your child is learning their class spelling for the weekly tests (Friday)

The children should, by now, know all their multiplication and division facts up to and including 12x12 and 144 ÷ 12

Please encourage your child to read their home school reading book and change it at least once a week. We have a fantastic new and exciting reading scheme which the children can't wait to explore so please support your child by reading with them on a regular basis.

We would urge your child to continue practising their multiplication and division facts at home.  They are tested on a weekly basis and we love to see their scores improve.
