Year 5M 2021 - 2022

Miss Mulkeen

Welcome back to our final half term of the year!

In English this half term, we will begin our term by reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, investigating settings, character development, dialogue and narrative style.

In Maths, we will start by ordering and comparing decimal numbers, and then the children will use this skill and apply it to problem solving activities, including the use of percentages and decimals. We will then move onto analysing data from graphs. This will be followed by an assessment week which will give the children an opportunity to show off what they have learnt. Finally, we will focus on metric and imperial units.

For our Science Unit, Year Five will look at the unit of forces. I won’t give too much away, but expect experiments and investigations with parachutes!

For R.E. Year 5 will explore multi- cultural Christianity. During this unit, we will talk and think about the first Christians and the spread of Christianity. The children will be given a simple introduction to understanding Christianity as a Multi-cultural and worldwide faith. Some key questions we will be investigating are:

How has the story of Jesus been spread around the world?

Why didn’t the first Christians give up when telling the story was so hard?

Why does Jesus look different in all the pictures?

Why does the artwork reflect the culture?

In what way does the artwork reflect the culture?

Our topic work will move towards History, by investigating the big question ‘Who were the Rochdale pioneers?’ In this unit, the children will explore the beginning of the co-operative movement and how this started in their hometown!

May I remind you that although Year 5 are scheduled to have indoor P.E. on a Monday and Tuesday and outdoor P.E. on a Friday, kit should be in school at all times in case on any last minute changes. The same applies to reading books.
