Year 5WD

This autumn a lot of our learning will be focused on Ancient Greece.  This was a great period in history and on our journey we will explore their amazing legacy which makes them still important in our lives today such as democracy. Our map skills will develop as we compare how Modern and Ancient Greece have evolved and why city states held such an importance, especially the relationship between Athens and Sparta and how these families were raised. Finally, we will know that the Ancient Greeks worshipped many Gods and used them as guides in their lives.

Science we will be about the circulatory system for the first part of the term.  We will gain a deeper understanding into how and why we need to keep ourselves fit and healthy . In the second half of the term we will explore the facts of inheritance and evolution.

Handwriting will be high profile this term to ensure that our letter formation, position on the line, joins and fluency improve.   We shall be exploring language, playing with sentence structure and enhancing our writing through descriptive settings, persuasive writing and responding to inferential questions in our reading skills lessons.

We love Maths and we will be revisiting and deepening our learning in:

Number: Place value up to 6 digits (hundreds of thousands)

Number : Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Measurement: Area and Perimeter
