Curriculum Overview 2017-2018

Welcome to Year 5!

Class Teacher - Mrs Davidson

Welcome back to a busy summer term in year 5.



The topic this term is all about Ancient Greece. We will be looking at the landscapes of the areas and the impact of tourism. We will be learning about democracy in ancient times and today, as well as visiting the council chambers at Lancaster Town Hall. In DT we will be creating our own Greek pots.






In English we are looking at report writing and poetry. We will also be working on our speech writing.





In maths we will be looking at a range of problem solving using all four operations. We will be focusing on written methods for multiplication and division. We will also be learning more about fractions, decimals and percentages.

Please continue to help your child learn their times tables, especially 6, 7, 8 and 9s.

Some other good websites for maths:


In science we will be learning about forces in the first half term and all about plants and growth after the May holiday.
