Year 5

Welcome back!

We have a wonderful topic all about Tudors this half term. This will involve an exciting trip to Stratford, doing battle with Richard and Henry at the Battle of Bosworth and becoming Henry VIII!

We will be learning all about an important figure during Tudor times; the playwright William Shakespeare. This will link to our Literacy work, where we will be reading Romeo and Juliet.

In addition to all of these exciting experiences, we have work on Fractions, Decimals and Percentages in Maths. We will be continuing to work on our mental maths skills such as times tables.

Our Science topic this term is out of this world. We’ll be launching off into Space as we learn all about the planets in our solar system.

In RE we are learning all about ‘Creation and science: conflicting or complementary?’ which will raise interesting questions and debate.

Initially PE is on Mondays so please remember your kits. Further information on swimming this half term will follow.

An exciting half term to look forward to!
