Spring 2 is set to be a fantastic term for Year Five as we continue to learn all about the Greek gods and goddesses and the way of life during this fascinating period of history.
In English this half term, we are going to be writing our very own Autobiographies, taking inspiration for Roald Dahl’s ‘Boy: Tales of Childhood’. We will start by studying a range of different autobiographic styles (including Roald Dahl’s very own), before planning, writing and evaluating our autobiographic writing styles.
In Mathematics this half term, we are going to continue to focus on our number skills. We want to be experts at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division! We will continue to expand our knowledge of fractions, and their relationship with decimals and percentages. Please make sure you practise your times tables regularly using our fantastic resource, Times Tables Rockstars.
All our learning will contribute towards our very own theatre production, which we will open to families and members of the community during this half term! At this extravaganza, you will be immersed in an Ancient Greek experience. Keep an eye out for more information about tickets…
In PE we will be focusing on cricket outside and dance inside. Please ensure that you bring your PE kit in on a Monday and have something warm to wear.
Our focus in Computing this half term will be designing our very own Greek temples using specialist software.
This half term in PHSE we will be visited by a retired police officer to talk about County Lines, and we will be exploring habits, peerpressure and handling these issues.
