Year 5 – Dolphins

Latest Updates

This Weeks Learning

This week in mathematics, the children will conclude their unit of work based around fractions. They will use their known understanding to identify, add and subtract fractions.

This week in English the children will conclude their fantastic narrative writing. The children will study one last text before writing their final narrative of the term.

Our topic this half term is called ‘Ancient Greece’.

The children will be creating their own graphic narratives based around comic strips.

We will be spending a large portion of our topic time on history and art, looking at how the Greeks developed over time and the art work associated with the Greeks.

In ICT, the children will be using scratch to create their own computer game, again drawing inspiration from our Greek topic.

We have also set a home learning project, based on the Greek gods. We are asking the children to design their own top trump cards, which the children will be able to play throughout the term.

As we now approach the final term in year 5, reading 5 times a week is as important as ever, and we would really encourage the children to read as widely and frequently as possible. We will continue to use the Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars app in school, and it would be really beneficial if the children could continue to access these apps at home also. If your child has any concerns, we would really encourage them to come and see us
