Welcome to Term 4!
It is going to be another exciting term of learning. The whole school theme is 'A Moment in Time'. Year 5 will be focusing on 'What Was Life Like During the War? We will look closely at World War II.
Our class book is Goodnight Mr. Tom by Michelle Magorian. We will be writing letters, news reports and also writing an alternative ending to the story.
In Science, we will be looking at forces. His includes: gravity, friction and aerodynamics. We will carry out several investigations and experiments where the children will develop their skills in making predictions, refining research questions and hypotheses and analysing our results.
In Maths we will be looking at long division, fractions, decimals and percentages.
In our final week, Year 5 will be going on a class trip. This will be on Wednesday 3rd April. Letters will be sent out on the first week of the term.
Please continue to nurture the love of reading with your child.
It would also be very helpful if time table facts are practiced daily to develop speed. This will help your child across their Maths learning.
Your child has been given spelling word mats which they have in their class wallets. They are free to take these home and practice the spelling word listed. The spelling words for this term can also be found on this page.
