This half term Year 5 will continue to learn about Earth and Space. In English, this half term, we will be continuing to master a high standard of writing for a range of purposes. We will begin the half term as journalists, gathering all the information we need to write a gripping newspaper report. We will then be focusing our attention on legendary astronaut, Neil Armstrong. To learn more about his life and legacy, make sure you read our biographies. We will end the half term by performing a range of winter inspired poetry. In Maths this half term we will be developing our multiplication and division skills and then using and applying what we have learnt in problem solving situations. Please make sure you learn and practise your times tables regularly, as well as logging onto Mathletics at home!

In topic, we will be continuing to learn about ‘Earth and Space’. We are going to be creating fact files as well as making our planets. We will be learning about the Milky Way preparing to be blown away by the sheer vastness of our universe! We can’t wait to immerse ourselves even more in this fascinating topic; there is so much to learn about our world and beyond. In Science, we will continue to focus Earth and Space. We will investigate what makes rockets streamlined, explore the moon and the phrases and begin to understand that the Earth is divided into imaginary lines of longitude called meridians.
