Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 – Summer 2 Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a chance to relax and enjoy the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in some way.

Topics covered this half term are below:

Mountains - We switch to a geography focus this half term and our topic is mountains. We will explore mountain ranges, their formation, features, climate and understand how they are affected by travel and tourism.

Maths – Year 5 will initially be focusing on area and perimeter, and converting units of measurement – (including understanding the approximate conversions between metric and imperial measurements), before revisiting multiplication, division and other areas of maths.

Reading – We have a poetry focus this half term – at first looking at a historical poem first published in 1906. We’ll then be focusing on Cloudbusting by Malorie Blackman, a previous children’s laureate.

Writing – Linked to our reading, we will be creating a piece of historical fiction about The Highwayman in the poem

Science – This term our focus is on Animals including Humans. Within this term’s topic we will be understanding more about the human timeline, including gestation and puberty.

PE – Will again be Fridays only this half term. We will be focusing on practising and applying ball skills within cricket and tennis.

DT – Our focus is textiles; children will be practising different types of stitching with the aim being to make a tote bag as a final piece.

As always, if you have any concerns or questions – please get in touch.

Best Wishes,

Carl Bown
