Welcome back to all our families after the Christmas break.  This half term will see us looking at the life of Shakespeare and his play Midsummers Night Dream in our literacy lessons.  We will continue with our Maths curriculum with a focus on reasoning and explaining our answers.  With Art week in the second week back and the theme of growing, we will enjoy a drama workshop from Moving Words and look at the book How To Live Forever, considering whether this is a good idea.  In PE we will have specialist dance coaches coming in, and be improving our hockey and netball skills when weather permits outdoor PE.
Maths Shape Work

Year 5 have been working on tesselating shapes and building 3d shapes from nets - here are some pictures of the fun we had during our Maths lesson, though it wasn't always easy!

Year 5 National Curriculum
Long Term Plan Year 5
National Media Museum trip........
Year 5 have made an excellent start to the new school year, and shown great enthusiasm for our topic of Earth and Space.  We have been learning about place value in Maths and have now moved onto ordering and comparing fractions.
In our Literacy work we studied an abridged version of War of the Worlds, and produced some amazing diary entries, newspapers and stories based on this text.  We also had an excellent trip to the National Media Museum in Bradford, where we got to take part in experiments, watch a 3d film in the Imax cinema and see the Soyuz shuttle that Tim Peake returned to Earth in from the International Spaxce Station.  Photos to follow very soon .......

As we move into the next term we will be reading Room 13 in our Literacy, and concentrating on the use of relative clauses to add extra detail to our writing.  In Science our new topic will be Changing Materials, where we will carry out experiments and look at the effects of dissolving and evaporation, heating and filtering, on different materials. 

We will be attending a ceremony at the Cenotaph on Friday 10th November at 1045, to remember those who gave their lives in the wars both last century and this.  Parents and carers are welcome to join us.
