Year 5 Class Teacher
Welcome to Year 5!
This term we will be learning about:
A big warm welcome to year 5, I hope you are ready for an exciting year. We are starting the year by learning about the fantastically imagined planet – Pandora. Some of you may recognise the planet and its inhabitants from the film ‘Avatar’. We will be using this as the basis for our learning this term. In English, we will be writing a non-chronological report about the planet. Our topic work will involve learning about rainforests and the different layers, locating them on a world map and learning about the physical geography of them. Our class book this term is ‘Cosmic – It’s one giant leap for all boy-kind’ by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We will use this book during our reading sessions along with helping us write on introduction for our own story. Linked to this, in topic, we will be learning about the moon, sun and planets and the way they rotate to assist our understanding of day and night. In maths, the class will be consolidating their understanding of place value and Roman Numerals. Towards the end of the term, we will be using our maths skills to plan a trip to Disney World to visit Pandora at the Animal Kingdom. Throughout the term there are many other experiences taking place including: Harvest, Pea Pod and a visit from the fire service. We will keep you updated as the term progresses!
