Year 5 Newsletter
In maths, the children will be continuing with our unit of work on place value. They will be developing their skills of comparing numbers within a one million, rounding numbers and making and identifying patterns in numbers. In English, they will be completing their non-chronological reports then using their knowledge to write a report on an imaginary creature of their own choice.
In the afternoons, the children will be progressing their mapping skills by looking at a range of maps which track Shackleton’s journey across Antarctica. In PHSCE, the children will develop their thinking on the value of the month – respect, and in art they will be painting water-colours of penguins. On Monday afternoon, they will have their games session with the sports coach and the theme for this half term is ball skills linked to netball and basketball
