Year 5

 

 

                                   Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5!  We are a  happy class of 27 talented children  – taught by Mrs Read and are supported by Mrs Currie. The pupils have made an excellent start to the new school year and are putting every effort into their work.  We set high expectations and enjoy learning in a creative environment. 

Class Bible Verse – Matthew 4:4  Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of god.

Religious Education

This term the children are learning all about the different roles of Jesus. The children will be thinking about who has been a good teacher in their lives and why this was. We will look at old and new parables from the bible and discuss the messages that we learn from each story. We will be writing poetry and prayers about the Kingdom of heaven and making connections between British Values today and Christian Values.     

Maths
The pupils will continue their learning of Fractions, including improper, equivalent and mixed. Negative numbers will be incorporated into their learning and the children will learn to interpret them in context and use number lines to calculate problems through zero. This will then be followed by Roman Numerals up to 1000.
They will use their knowledge of Geometry and polygons and irregular polygons to begin to understand translation through different quadrants on a grid. They will also revisit angles including reflex angles.
