Mrs Evans, Ms Curtis and Mrs Walford welcome you to year 5.
This term our topic is all about The Tudors and the way of life during the sixteenth century. We will be studying famous explorers from the time and investigation their routes and the trade links they set up. As part of our topic we hope to visit Moseley Old Hall to experience every day life during the period.
In maths our focus will be number, fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be focusing on reasoning and problem solving, and encouraging the children to discuss and explain their ideas.
Our English will take us into the world of the Jaberwocky for our poetry and non-chronological writing, take us on adventures with Christopher Columbus in guided reading and produce newspaper reports about various aspect of Tudor life.
In science we will be exploring and investigating the world of forces.
