This Term's Topics

  • Topic - Ancient Egypt
  • Science - Materials
  • Maths - Multiplication and Division
  • PE - Invasion games/Gymnastics
  • This term we are learning about a very exciting topic - Ancient Egypt! We will be finding out all about what life was like in Ancient Egypt, including: the ancient pyramids, famous pharaohs, burial rituals, Egyptian Gods and why the River Nile was so important.

    Maths
    In Maths, we will be revising multiplication, multiples, factors, prime numbers and square numbers.

    We are also really enjoying using our new Maths app, 'Doodle Maths'. This app gives children an opportunity to build on their maths knowledge, across all areas of the maths curriculum. The children have loved interacting with the activities since we began using it in the Autumn term. Login details were sent home before the Christmas holidays. Please get in touch if you need login details resent to you.

    Reading
    While we are learning from home, try to read for at least 15 minutes a day. It doesn't always have to be a chapter book. It might be a newspaper, magazine, comic - anything that interests you! Twinkl are currently offering free online reading books. Just enter 'Twinkl ebooks' into Google and you will see a variety of books to choose from.

    Science
    In Science, we will be investigating materials and exploring their properties. There are some links related to this topic on the class page you can have a look at whilst learning from home.


    Physical Education
    In PE this term we will be doing invasion games and gymnastics. Whilst we are learning from home, try to get as much exercise as you can each day. Joe Wicks is starting daily workouts on YouTube from Monday 11th January. Going for a walk or just playing in your garden are also nice ways of getting your daily dose of exercise!

    Maths
    The White Rose website is a great resources for home learning. This week we are looking at multiplication and division https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/week-1-number-multiplication-division/

    Spellings
    You can continue to practise your spellings on the Spelling Ski game on Learning Beck. Additionally, the Year 5/6 spelling list is also available on this page for you to practise.

    Reading
    Please continue to support your child's progress in reading by hearing them read as much as possible and asking questions about what they have read. Reading to your child also continues to be important in Year 5 as it can play a huge role in developing understanding and building on vocabulary by enabling children to access more sophisticated texts.

    We enjoy playing Times Table Rockstars to help us improve our times tables knowledge and are looking forward to inviting some other classes to participate in battles with us this term!
