Year 5 2020-21

In Summer 1, our topic is 'Nature Detectives.' Our science focus is living things in their habitats. We will learn about sexual and asexual reproduction in plants and animals and compare and contrast life-cycles. We will link this theme to our computing and art lessons by learning to take eye-catching photos of nature and using different effects and editing techniques to alter and improve them. We will use these images to create Orla Kiely-inspired mosaics. 

While reading our new class text, 'The Butterfly Lion ', we will continue to develop our comprehension and writing skills, learning to use different sentence structures and techniques to build cohesion within a text.

In Maths, we will continue to follow the White Rose Year 5 programme of study while offering small group 'reconnect' sessions to bridge gaps in knowledge and understanding. 











Spelling Test and new spellings handed out.

We've had a great day at our WW2 Day. The children enjoyed making blitzed buildings, dancing The Lambeth Walk and making their party teas!
