Meet Our Team
Autumn Term 1
Welcome to Year 5!
I hope that you had a well-rested holiday with lots of fun that has made you ready for the new school year! I am looking forward to seeing you again and hearing all about your summer holidays before an exciting start to Year 5.
Our first topic will be Ancient Greece where we will be learning all about what life was like at this time, what the Ancient Greeks achieved and what impact they have had on other parts of the world. We will be gathering lots of information and also creating some artwork linked to Ancient Greece.
In English we will begin by learning about Ancient Greek myths, reading some together and working towards planning and writing our own Greek myths.
In Maths we will start with place value, moving onto addition, subtraction, multiplication and division before introducing decimals, rounding and negative numbers.
Our PE days this half term are indoor on Mondays with Mrs Divine and outdoors on Tuesday with myself. We will also have enrichment every week this year, this will be on a Wednesday morning and so you need your PE kit for this too (It might be best to keep your PE kit in school) and we will have enhancement every three weeks too.
MyMaths, TTRockstars and Spelling Shed homework will be set on a Thursday and you will have a week to complete it. I will give you a reminder on Wednesday!
I hope that you enjoy your first half term as Year 5!
