We Grow Together Through God









We cannot believe that it is Term 5 and we are already two thirds of the way through Year 5!  It has been great to see the children return so happily after the Easter Break - we have lots planned for this term.

We are continuing with our Tudor theme in English and as the main focus for many of our afternoon lessons.  In English, we will be studying Shakespeare and some of his work.  We aim to write our own play scripts using some of his work to inspire us.  We will also be focusing on biographies and poetry and this will take us up until the end of Term 5.  We will be continuing to read the book 'Treason' through our daily Guided Reading sessions. 

In Maths, we are moving onto the focus entitled Shape, Space and Measure and will look at angles, 2D and 3D shapes as well as measuring and units of measure.  We will also be trying to improve our reasoning skills.  Our times table test will be weekly and take place each Thursday.  

In Art, we are looking to create our own Tudor portrait.  In RE we will be learning about Islam.  In PE, our activities for this term will be centred around athletics and will include running, jumping and throwing activities.  This will be every Thursday.  In computing, we will be using Scratch to learn more about programming.

What a fun and busy term we have coming up!
