Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

Welcome back to a busy half term in year 5. I hope you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable half term.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The topic this half term is all about the United Kingdom. We will be looking at the landscapes of the areas and what makes each country special. We will also be looking at the use of digital and paper maps to find more information.

 

 

 

 

 

In English we are looking at Myths and Legends, especially ones about the United Kingdom. By the end of term, we will be writing our own legends based around our local area of Morecambe.

 

Please use http://myths.e2bn.org/ to read some stories.

 

See how many different versions of Robin Hood you can find.

 

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.

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