Year 5 - Curie & Hawking
These are some of the things year 5 will be learning during this year
In our maths lessons Children will learn to write addition, subtraction, multiplication and division Maths Stories, including negative numbers, fractions and mixed numbers, e.g. 2 4/5 + 1 3/5 = 4 2/5. They will use vertical additions and subtractions to calculate answers. They will use the grid method to complete multiplication of 2-digit numbers. They will also solve word problems involving division (including answers with remainders). They will learn to write remainders as a number and as a fraction, e.g. 43 ÷ 5 = 8 r 3 or 8 3/5.
In geometry, data and measures the children will learn different aspects depending on the maths group that they are in.
Please feel free to come and talk to your child’s maths teacher if you require more details.
In Physical Education over the year we will complete a number of units of study. Both classes have their P.E lessons on Monday and Friday. We will start the year working on Multi-skills. This will involve a range of activities to develop the children’s agility, stamina, co-ordination and balance. These skills are essential in all sports. Later in the year we will be using these skills to play Tag Rugby. These lessons will be outside. Please ensure that you child has suitable P.E kit for this e.g. tracksuit top and bottoms.
PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD INTO SCHOOL WITH
THEIR PE KIT ON MONDAY AND FRIDAY.
In Literacy will be learning about and writing diary entries. The children will be putting themselves into the shoes of different characters who appear in the books that we will be reading in class. We will also look at autobiographies and biographies.
