Year 5H 2019 - 2020

Miss Hannah

Our School Mission Statement:

"I have come that they should have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10)

Inspired by the teachings of Christ, St Edmund's and St Thomas' Catholic Primary school encourages and guides our pupils and all our school community to have a strong sense of service, love and compassion. In this way, they are encouraged to develop a vision for what they want to achieve with a zest for living life to the full.

Welcome to Year 5!

Please see below for more information on this term's curriculum:

English

In line with our topic of WW2, the children will be reading 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' by John Boyne. Please do not let the children watch the film as this will spoil the book. 

Mathematics

During the Autumn term, we will focus on place value, addition and subtraction, statistics and multiplication and division. 

Come and See

This term, the children will be learning about the Domestic Church with a particular focus on love. They will explore the love and care of people and they will come to understand that God's love is unconditional and never ending. 

History

Year 5 and 6 will be learning about the events of WW2 and they will explore the impact that the war had on Liverpool. 

Science

Children will group and classify a range of living things. They will research and identify the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. They will also investigate how plants and animals reproduce and they will grow a new plant from a cutting of an old one.

Art

Children will apply their knowledge of the Liverpool Blitz to create a piece of WW2 artwork. 

PE

Handball

ICT

The children will design and create their own website about an endangered animal.

 

Homework and PE

Homework will be sent out on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. If the children do not have their homework in by the Friday morning, then they will be expected to complete it at break time on that day. We are currently revising the spellings from the year 3 and 4 list and once complete, we will begin the year 5 and 6 spellings. Spelling tests will be completed on a Friday morning. Please encourage your children to take resposibility for ensuring their PE kits are in school (PE slot is on a Monday). Children need to be spending some time on Times Table Rockstars (passwords inside homework diaries) and reading every night. If the children suceed in learning all of their multiplication and division facts by the end of the year, they will recieve a small trophy! 

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
