Mrs Evans, Ms Curtis and Mrs Walford welcome you to year 5.
This term our topic is about World War II and we are using this as the starting point for much of our English work. We will be looking in depth at the novel ‘goodnight Mister Tom’ by Michelle Magorian and looking at how the war affected children and young people at home and abroad.
In maths our focus will be place value, the four operations and data handling. We will be focusing on reasoning and problem solving, and encouraging the children to discuss and explain their ideas.
Dates to remember…
Mondays and Thursdays
On the 6th December we will be visiting Morells Wood Farm as part of our science topic looking at habitats and also to forage and make Christmas wreaths from our collections.
