Welcome to Year 5

       

          Mrs Burns - Class Teacher  

What a busy term we had last term and the next term is looking just as exciting. The first half term we are learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and after half term we will be blasting off as we learn about Space. We also have two very exciting visits planned.

English

During the first half term we will be looking at a book called Mystery of the Egyptian Scroll by Scott Peters, this links with our work on Ancient Egypt. We will be writing a narrative and a persuasive text. After half term we will be reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce for our poetry as well as a flashback.

Maths

At Sunny Bank we continue to develop a ‘mastery’ approach to maths. This term, children will be deepening their understanding of methods of multiplying and dividing, as well as fractions and decimals.

Science

Our science the first half term will focus on forces and after the half term holidays we will be looking at Earth and space.

Topic

In our first half term together will delve into the past as we look at the life of the Ancient Egyptians. We will be looking further afield as we gaze at the starts and find out about space after half term.
