Welcome to Year 5!
The Summer Term Curriculum is filled with lots of exciting topics!
In Science, children will be taken on an exciting journey through Space, learning about the Sun, the Earth and the Solar System. This will include learning how to spot the famous constellations in the sky! Furthermore, they will design and create rockets in DT based on their learning of space travel and explore key events such as the first moon landing.
In History, the children will research key events during World War One, looking at the role Britain played during the war. This will prepare them for their later learning of World War Two in year 6. In Art, they will study Greek pots to consolidate their previous learning on the Greeks. Hopefully, to make a Greek pot at home too.
Topics covered in English will help children to consolidate all the writing skills they have been practising in year 5 and the key skills they will need to prepare them for year 6: a range of fiction and non- fiction texts including balanced arguments, narrative poems and Science Fiction stories.
Learning in maths will focus on revising and deepening children’s understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages, as well as time and money, measurement and statistics.
