Term 3

y5-world

This term, we will be continuing with our new curriculum and we will be developing the children’s awareness of: time, technology and human endeavour.

We will be starting the term with geography and the children will be developing their mapping skills. We will be using  grid references and compass points - to describe locations. We will also be understanding the location of ‘key’ features in Bristol, with an emphasis on ‘the coast’, river and harbour and industrial features impacted by the Blitz. This will link to the history work we have already completed .

‘Electricity’ will be our science focus this term. We will be creating our own circuits to understand how any changes in a circuit can affect the outcome. We will also be drawing diagrams of the circuits to understand which symbols are used to represent each part of the circuit

Homework is given out on a Wednesday (on Class Dojo and paper copies where required) and is due in by the following Wednesday (on Dojo). Every Friday there is a spelling test – all the spellings for the term can be found on Class Dojo (paper copies are available on request). Both Year 5 classes have PE on a Thursday afternoon and it is ESSENTIAL that the children have their P.E. kit for these sessions.


Term 2

Year 5 are excited to start the new curriculum this term and will be developing the children’s awareness of: time, technology and human endeavour as children link and associate ideas together as they cultivate an increasing sense of the ever changing world they live in

Our first topic is light: natural and artificial light sources; how it travels and how it produces shadows. During this topic, the 

y5-t2(9)

children will set up and carry out a variety of investigations to reinforce their scientific inquiry skills.

 Following on from light, the children will be studying the impact of World War 2 on Bristol, particularly the development of aircrafts in the Bristol area during this time and the devasting effects of bombing.

Now the children are in Upper Key Stage Two, the expectation is that they will develop and demonstrate resilience, independence and good organisational skills on a daily basis. This means: we expect children to try and persevere when faced with something new ‘and ‘give it a go’; follow regular daily routines and be responsible for the resources they are given (every child has their own set of resources).

Homework is given out on a Wednesday (on Class Dojo and paper copies where required) and is due in by the following Wednesday (on Dojo). Every Friday there is a spelling test – all the spellings for the term can be found on Class Dojo (paper copies are available on request). Both Year 5 classes have PE on a Thursday afternoon and it is ESSENTIAL that the children have their P.E. kit for these sessions.



Y5_t1(4)Term 1

Year 5 have an exciting and busy year ahead! We are focused on settling your children back to school, making them feel safe and consolidating their learning from last year. In RE the children will discuss their journey through lockdown and how it has changed our lives.

In English this term, our writing will cover a variety of books including: The Journey by Aaron Becker and The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will also be involved in lots of PSHE activities all to do with Being Me in My World. In science, we will be exploring Living things and during PE we will be getting outside for athletics! Please remember to bring PE kit (plain white t-shirt & blue shorts or jogging bottoms) to school on Monday for the week.

Now the children are in Upper Key Stage Two we expect them to demonstrate resilience, independence and good organisational skills on a daily basis.

Homework will be allocated on Class Dojo every Wednesday and will be due in the following Wednesday.
