Year 5 Class Teacher
Welcome to Year 5!
Term 1: It’s The Hard Knock Life
A warm welcome to Year 5, we are in for a busy and fun packed year. The class have decided to learn about the Victorians and have made a good start.
We have started the topic by creating a timeline to find out when the Victorian era took place. Following this, we have learnt about the Industrial Revolution and its importance. In the coming weeks, we will be deepening our understanding of Queen Victoria I and the Royal family, life in the Workhouses, comparing our diet to the Victorian times and learning about Victorian inventions. In art lessons, the class are going to improve their ability to draw portraits. We will be looking at Queen Victoria and Dr Barnardo and using a range of mediums to create portraits of them. This term, our maths is based around numbers and the number system. The children will be working with numbers up to 1,ooo,ooo and learning how to read, write and order them. All of our writing will be topic based. We have started the term by learning about diaries and are in the process of writing our own. Later in the term we will be creating fact files, information texts and writing the opening to a film sequence.
Many thanks, Mrs Rolfe
