Year 5

October Update:

Don't forget to check out the Year 5 Gallery to see what 5S and 5Y have been up to!  The children have been busy being creative during the Autumn 1:  acting, writing and painting.   There is a selection of David Hockney like paintings, some freeze frames of Holy people and examples of poetry.  Take a look!

 

Welcome to Year 5!

It has been a lovely start to a new school year.  Year 5 have returned to school with smiles, positive attitudes and enthusiasm – ready to learn!  The children have already settled in well to the new routines and procedures asked of them and we could not be more pleased.  Well done!

During this term, there will be lots of interesting topics to cover:

     In RE, the children will look at ‘Ourselves’ and how we are made in the image of God.

     In English, the children will read an adaptation of Macbeth and focus on writing good quality sentences using expanded nouns and relative clauses.

     In Maths, the children will examine numbers – their value and importance in our daily lives.

     In History and Geography, the children will take a close look at Henry VIII, his impact on religion and where these changes took place (not too far from Greenford). 

     In Art, the children are well on their way to creating their own version of a David Hockney landscape – we can’t wait to see their final pieces!

     Finally, in Music, the children will begin to learn how to play a djembe during African drumming. 

Miss Spicer and Mrs Young would encourage the children to continue their wonderful start by continuing to listen well, read as much as they can and always do their best!  It should be a fabulous year!
