As well as enjoying the Sun over the next half term, we will be learning all about it! Our new topic is: ‘Earth and Space’.
We are going to be learning all about our Solar System and the way that our planet orbits the Sun. We are preparing to be blown away by the sheer vastness of our universe! We can’t wait to immerse ourselves in this fascinating topic; there is so much to learn about our world and beyond.
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.
Maths this half term will see us using and applying the number skills we have been working hard to develop throughout Year 5 so far in a range of exciting contexts. We will be learning about shapes, angles and measurement as well as becoming masters of translations in four quadrants. Look out for our rocket models, which we will be creating by combining different 3D shapes.
In computing this half term, will be learning about visual coding. We will be creating our very own space animations. Make sure you attend the film premier of our animations at our Space Museum next half term!
In RE this half term, we will be learning all about the different faiths and cultures in Greenwich. We will be thinking about how our community is enriched by diversity, and how we can promote peace, understanding and equality by celebrating our differences.
