Welcome to Year 5! We have a lot of exciting learning planned for the Spring term. In English, we are going to be reading two books called ‘The Journey’ and ‘The Dam’ and we will be emotive letters, documentary scripts, newspaper reports and explanation texts. In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, decimals and percentages and area and perimeter for most of this term and doing lots of problem solving and reasoning. In Science, we will be starting off with our unit of learning all about Earth and Space. In Geography, our Unit of Learning will be ‘Different Places/Same Lives’ in which we will be comparing the human and physical geography of the UK to Bangladesh. In RE, we will be learning about the Sikh religion and how the Sikh gurus have shaped the religion.
