Year 5

What’s happening this half term?


During this half term we will be looking at two books. ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner and ‘Jumanji’ by Chris Van Allsburg. We will be completing a range of writing around both of these books starting with ‘Tuesday’.


In Maths we will be completing our work from before half term on fractions. We will then be moving on to look at  percentages and decimals and how the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages works. After this we move on to look at properties of shapes.


We will be studying the Geography question Where does all our stuff come from? During these lessons, pupils will complete a range of learning tasks finding out about how things are transported globally.


We will be studying the question ‘Do all animals start life as an egg?’. During this unit, pupils will be learning about living things and their habitats.


Children will be doing athletics this half term. As part of this children will use running, jumping, catching and throwing in isolation and in combination with each other.
