Dolphins Year 5
Spring Term 2019
Dear class 5 Parents,
I am writing to give a brief outline of the work we will be covering this term in each curriculum area.
Mental Calculation Strategies, Decimals, Fractions & Percentages, using our knowledge to solve problems.
We will be reading ‘Cogheart’, debating and planning writing based on this book. In addition to this, we will be looking at Alice in Wonderland.
This term the children will be continuing to work on forces and will also look at changes in materials and reversible and irreversible changes.
The children will be looking at the Victorians and what their life was like and how Britain has changed since.
In Geography the children will be learning about Brazil in depth. We will look at all the different geographical details as well as learning about how these impact the country.
We will be continuing to look at different ways of communicating, how to stay safe on the internet, and using technology to create Art.
This term the children will be looking at People of God. How can following God bring freedom and justice? Through a study of the story of Exodus.
We will be looking at different beats whilst in a group to create a collective piece of work.
Thursday - Ultimate Frisbee and Dance
Friday - Netball and Football (football boots are recommended as it does get muddy)
Homework will continue to be given every Friday and collected in for marking on the following Tuesday. This will normally be work from 2 subject areas, and should take approximately 40 minutes to complete. They will also have spellings to learn on a regular basis.
P.E. will be on Thursday and games will be Friday as before. Please ensure your children have the appropriate kit on these days with extra layers if it is cold.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me.
Thank you for your support,
