In English this half term, we will begin our term by reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo a wonderful story of adventure and friendship! We will investigating settings, character development, dialogue and narrative style. We will be focusing specifically on comprehension skills and will be analysing the book chapter by chapter.

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. We will be exploring more complex forces, building on the learning from Year 3. We will look at gravity, friction, air and water resistance and applying these to lots of fun and informative experiments.

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.

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 our very own hometown! We will be exploring further the concepts of inequality and justice and how these interact with the social classes of Victorian Rochdale.

In DT, we will be looking at CAM mechanisms. We will be exploring how they function and have a go at creating our own. This will build to our final piece which will be an exciting and creative CAM toy.

May I remind you that although Year 5 are scheduled to have indoor P.E. three times a week, kit should be in school at all times in case on any last minute changes. The same applies to reading books. Please read with your children as often as you can; it is invaluable to their learning!
