Meerkats - Year 5

Hello and welcome to Year 5. I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday and hope that you are excited too. It has been a crazy year for you and I would like to make sure that you are not worried about coming into my class. Moving class can be a little strange at first, especially after so long off, but you will soon get used to being in my class and start enjoying coming to school again. So come in on Thursday with a smile on your face and we will get going.


Here are some of the things you will be learning this term:


Maths - In Maths we will be looking at place value and then moving onto addition and subtraction. It is really important that we get these first bits correct as it will really help with the rest of the year.


English - In English we will be looking at the story of King Kong. Writing opportunities will include:


  • Setting description, persuasive letter, Diary entry, Newspaper report on the capturing of Kong, An alternative Ending to King Kong .


P.E - This will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday and will be taken by Mr Kelly and Mr Hall. Please ensure that you come to school in your PE kit on the day you have PE to avoid having to bring extra clothes because of the Coronavirus.


French - In French you will be looking at words and phrases associated with being On Holiday.


Science -  In Science you will be studying forces, this will include looking at Gravity, Wind Resistance, Bouyancy, levers and Pulleys and Friction. We have some super experiments for you do explore these forces in school too.


Geography - We will be looking at the Geography of North America and Canada.


RE and Worldviews - for this half term the religion we are studying will be Christianity and our Big Question is 

'Where is God in some of the Old Testament stories?'


Art - We will be looking at how sculptures are created and will design and make a sculpture of our own.


I will look forward to seeing you on Thursday.


Remember the smile!


Mr Hewson
