Welcome to Year 5! We have a lot of exciting learning planned for the Summer term. In English, we will be using Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar as stimulus to write, setting descriptions, poetry, newspaper reports, diary entries and discussion texts. In Maths, we will be focusing on presenting and interpreting data, shape, position and direction and decimals for most of this term and doing lots of problem solving and reasoning. In Science, we will be looking at the properties of everyday materials and their uses. In History, our Unit of Learning will be Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, where we will be looking at how Britain changed during that time period. In RE, we will be learning about Islam and how the 5 pillars help shape Muslims’ lives. We will be also rehearsing and performing our play for the Shakespeare project – stay tuned for a fantastic performance!
