Welcome to Year 5!
Working in Year 5 this year are Mr Donley & Mrs Varney.
Mrs Shepherd volunteers on a Thursday.
The class is also supported by Mrs Wheeler, Mrs Smith, Mrs Armstrong, Mrs Douglas, Mrs Reynolds, Mrs Mynott & Ms Crisp who volunteer throughout the week.
This term our topic is Greece. We will learn some things about Ancient Greece, such as the various Gods, a bit about their way of life and how their civilization laid the foundations for modern Europe.
In literacy we will be aiming to write our own Greek myths across the entire term! We will be continuing to develop our characters and look at sustaining a readers interest throughout a piece of writing. To this end, the children will be reading a variety of myths in their own time as well as class time.
This term numeracy will be all about geometry! We will be learning about angles, shape, graphing, area, perimeter and volume... with a little bit of converting metric and imperial for good measure! Pun fully intended.
