Welcome To Year 5

Spring Term

Welcome to spring term!

Last term in maths we covered place value; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division and we did a lot of problem solving and reasoning involving those concepts. During the Spring term we will continue to revisit our previous learning and we will mainly focus on fractions, decimals and percentages.

During the Autumn term the children wrote a wide variety of genres applying new grammatical skills as well as new vocabulary. During the Spring term the children will be once more enriching their vocabulary through reading new books and they will have many opportunities to apply it in their writing. We will first read “The Errand” which will lead to the children writing a suspense narrative. We will also start our Shakespeare project…so exciting! Through one of Shakespeare’s play, we will explore different drama techniques and the children will write their own version.

In Geography, we are continuing to learn about climate zones and climate change; we will end our topic learning about different habitats and biomes and understanding the difference between each one.

In DT, we will explore CAM mechanisms and the children will design and make their own.

In Science last term we learnt about forces. During the Spring term we will learn about Space and describe the movement of the earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system. We will describe the movement of the moon in relation to earth and the children will also explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky.

Reading diaries will be monitored on Wednesdays. Homework will go out every Friday and it should be in the following Tuesday. 

Don't forget you can follow the school on Twitter where you can see what happens in school on a day-to-day basis-search @willastonCE. 

Drop in sessions continue to be on every Monday straight after school. Alternatively, you are welcomed to contact the school to make a more convenient appointment.
