Year 5 Summer 2 2017-2018

A Thank You...

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout the Summer 1 term. Highlights have included our TALK Super Learning Day where we took part in another ‘Big Read’ (this time we read to the Reception children!) And our Royal Wedding Super Learning Day where we ate outside and played Royal Games to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!

As we enter the last half term of this academic year, we would like to share some of the many exciting learning opportunities coming up.  

Topic: Off with Her Head!

What sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad? Travel back in time to the 1500’s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour – and even swifter falling of heads! It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials the world has ever known!

Mathematics: Shape, Space and Measure

In Summer 2 we will be looking at Shape, Space and Measure which will include position and movement, measurements, area and perimeter and volume. Please remind your children to practise their times tables during the half term holidays including the dividing facts.

RE: Incarnation

In Summer 2, the children will be studying the place of Incarnation and Messiah within the ‘big story’ of the Bible. We will be reading parts of the Bible, the Gospel and prophecy texts, using technical and theological terms to make connections. We will be commenting on how the idea that Jesus is the Messiah makes sense in the wider story of the Bible and weigh up how far the idea that Jesus is the Messiah — a Saviour from God — is important in the world today and, if it is true, what difference that might make.

Homework will be given out on the first week back after the half term holidays. Try to be creative as possible! Spellings and Maths homework will also be given out weekly on a Monday to be returned the following Monday. Copies of homework are always available in the classroom. Alternatively, you can download the homework using the links provided on the left.


Thank you for your continued support,

Thurs-Fri: Mrs Parkinson (Y5 Teacher, Head of School)
