Welcome to Year 5

This term in Year 5, we will be examining strategies to improve wellbeing and looking at the different ways you can support your health and wellbeing. Through our Brainwave topic we will also explore our understanding of how to develop and maintain positive relationships and examine strategies to improve our own learning


In English we will be writing factual pieces about the moon landings and a biography about a real life astronaut. We will also create our own story set in space using our class text (Cosmic) as inspiration for a diary entry and descriptive writing.



In maths, we will be recapping and extending our knowledge of place value and then moving onto practising our adding and subtracting skills.



 We will start to explore Space through our new science and history topic of Space Scientists. During these lessons we will look at how our understanding of the solar system came to be, the phases of the moon and its orbit around the Earth, what gravity is and the space race.
