Term 1

Welcome to Year 5. It has been a long time since you have been in school but we are very excited to welcome you back and into your new class. We hope you all managed to have a great summer break and are ready for the new school year!

In English this term we will be focusing on Ancient Greek Myths and Legends. We will have opportunities to retell Greek myths and then use what we have learnt to write our own. We will be using a range of texts with a particular focus on the structure of sentences. We will also be revising direct speech as well as the purpose of different conjunctions. 

In maths we will focus on building a secure understanding of our place value in numbers to a million. This will include being able to read, write, order and compare numbers as well as being able to round them. Following this, we will be looking at addition and subtraction, solving multi step problems in context including deciding which operations to use and why. Throughout this, there will be an emphasis on reasoning and problem solving. We will also continue to revise our quick recall of multiplication and division facts.

Throughout the term, we will be completing two enquiries. The first is our historical enquiry where we will be learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece as well as their lasting legacies. At the end of term, as part of our RE enquiry, we will be trying to answer the question, "Why do some people believe God exists?"
