Welcome to Year 5!
This term our topic is Matters in Time!
In English, we will be writing an explanation text about an imaginary planet. We will also be writing some suspense stories to keep you on the edge of your seat!
In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions. We will also be using problem solving in order to apply our knowledge. How much do you know about this area of Maths so far?
In Science, our topic is Forces. We will be carrying out investigations to see the effects of friction, air and water resistance. In the second of the term, we will be looking at Earth and its place in the solar system. We are very excited because this is the only astronomy related unit in the Primary Science curriculum!
In History, we are learning about Ancient Greece. Can you place this period of history on a time line? Do you think there will be similarities between Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt that you learnt about in Year 4? What about comparisons with the Romans? We will discover the answers this term.
