Year 5

Summer Term

This term in Year 5, Miss Jones will be leading the class during Miss Hewitt- Lee's absence.

We will be using an amazing text, "Mirror" by Jeannie Baker, to inform our Literacy, Geography and Art work.

Within our literacy lessons we will be looking at using a range of writing genres including diary entries and play scripts. This will link to our Geography topic, where we will be looking at the two countries within the book, Morocco and Australia.  

In Art we will be producing some work which reflects the multimedia style of Jeannie Baker, who illustrated "Mirror". 

During Numeracy lessons we will be consolidating our understanding of shape and symmetry. We will continue to work hard on our times table skills as this will link into our work on multiplication, division and fractions.

This term in Science our topic is Forces and their impact on our everyday lives.

For Computing and Music the children will be working with Mr McDonald, where they will be creating a maze game using Scratch, and learning to play the penny whistle. 

Wow!What an exciting term this is going to be!
