Year 5 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 5's class page!
During this term, Year 5 will continue to study Earth and Space as our topic. So far this term we have learnt about the Solar System, why we have night and day and the phases of the moon. Next, we will focus on history and learn about the Space Race. Towards the end of the Spring term, the children will be challenged in design technology with the task of designing and creating their own orrery.
In maths, we will focus on developing our understanding of fractions. The children will extend their knowledge of equivalent fractions, learn how to convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers and begin to multiply fractions by whole numbers.
Today we introduced our new English genre - Science Fiction. We are all very excited about writing our own sci-fi narrative.
Timestables practice pages
To help with practicing their timestables, these 2 websites are set up in a very similar way to the actual test. Once your child is confident you always try decreasing the time you give them - or challenge them yourself to see who is the fastest!
