Welcome back to a busy autumn term in year 5.

 

 

Our topic this term is Amazon Adventure. We will be looking at the geography of South America and the Amazon rainforest. In art we will be painting Henry Rousseau inspired Amazon paintings and in DT we will use CAMS to make moving toys of Amazon animals.

 

 

 

 

 

In English we are looking at narrative poetry and play script writing.

 

 

 

In maths we will be looking at place value and statistics. We will be focusing on written methods for multiplication and division. We will also be looking at area and perimeter.

Please continue to help your child learn their times tables. Times tables rockstars is a really good website to help children practice.

PE is on Thursdays. Children will need to bring their PE and swimming kit to school. Please make sure you have removed any earrings.

 

 

Homework is set on a Friday and is due in the following Friday. Children will have spellings and times tables to practice as well as a maths or a comprehension worksheet. 

 

Any queries or concerns please make an appointment to see me with the school office or contact me via e-mail.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
