Welcome to Year 5!
It has been a very busy Spring term!
In RE, the children have been thinking about their personal missions and the mission of our church and diocese.
In English, we have all been engrossed in our modern fiction text - Alex Rider. The children loved learning about all the technical spy vocabulary and creating descriptive imagery sentences about the setting of London.
In Maths, we have been learning about fractions using lots of different resources like fraction wheels, cubes and fraction walls - It has been super fun!
In DT we had a chance to think about wholemeal and refined foods and we even had a taste test! The result of our findings lead us to making pizzas on a wholemeal base which were delicious!
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 Miss Wright 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 will be a fabulous year!
