Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


This term our topic is Stars and Stripes.

 We have been learning about North America in Geography and the how the landscape varies.  We are now looking at rivers and will later research ones in North America.  This research will support us in our computing sessions by helping us create a database on rivers.


In art, we will be developing our drawing skills.  We will be practising drawing from perspective and our inspiration will be New York City.   


In English, we will be learning a range of techniques used in creating an explanation text.  We will be writing about our own planet and will later use these skills to write an explanation text on a place in North America.  


Maths this term will be focusing on deepening our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages.  As usual, we will maintain our focus on problem solving where we will learn to apply our skills.
