Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

 

Spring Term:

 

Blood and Guts!

Spring Term

 

Important Dates:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Literacy:

 

The children will continue learning about how to construct a balanced argument. They will be considering how to formulate an argument 'for' and 'against' the motion: 'Should we consider using pig hearts in humans?'

 

Maths:

 

We will be beginning the strand of Fractions, by considering how to add and subtract fractions, how to convert between mixed number and improper fractions and how to multiply fractions.

 

Guided Reading:

 

We will use our Literacy text of 'Pig Heart Boy' to discuss the language, meaning and vocabulary of different passages.

 

Science:

 

We will be learning about the circulatory system, understanding the functions of key components of the system, including: the heart, the lungs, arteries and veins. We will be dissecting a pig's heart to further our understanding of the heart in a real-life context.

Eisteddfod

 

Well done to all of the Year 5 children who prepared a poem to recite. Chosen children will be announced in the Newsletter this week.

 

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.

The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)

Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices. 

Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.

The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!

Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you. 

Homework:

 

Spelling Homework: Week 3

 

Maths Homework: Multiplication and Division

 

Please can you ensure your child is practising their times tables. We have a weekly quiz on Friday where we are going to work our way through each times table.

 

Times Tables:

 

The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:

 

2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x

 

They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.

 

If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.

 

Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
