Year 5

Welcome to Year 5’s website page for 2019-2020.


The children in Year 5 have made a wonderful start to the new term. Miss. Garner and Mrs. Powell are already proud to have each and everyone of them in their class.



Literacy and Language.


Our first literacy focus this half term is a Greek myth called Prometheus and Pandora. This links in nicely with our history topic on Ancient Greece. We will be studying lots of other Greek myths this term as well as looking at some longer texts that relate to the topic - one of which is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. This text is available to borrow from most libraries or can be bought from bookshops or online.



To support their learning children should be reading some of the following titles…







Our history topic this half term is studying the Ancient Greeks. We will find out who they were, what their lives were like, learn about battles and much much more. The children have absolutely loved the start to this topic so make sure they tell you about what we have been learning.




Properties and Changes of Materials.


In science this half term me are looking at properties and changes of materials. We will be carrying out lots of experiments looking at how things change and if that change is reversible or irreversible. We will also be investigating dissolving and evaporating. Keep your eyes out for exciting photos from our lessons.







In art Year 5 are going to be looking at the artist Charles Fazzino. We will be trying out different Pop Art techniques and learning lots of new skills.







During our RE session this half term children will be studying the bible and thinking about where the bible came from. We will be looking at different bible stories and thinking about their meanings.
