This term will we be studying the following:
Science : Forces
During this unit we will be describing the forces of air resistance, water resistance, gravity and friction. We will be aiming to recognise that some mechanisms including: levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect. Our focus scientist for this unit is Isaac Newton.
History and Geography: Ancient Egypt
During this unit of study we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Part of this unit will involve an Ancient Egyptian day on the 15th January.
Pupils will have the opperutnity to learn about the Hindu religion. Including customs, traditions and beliefs.
PSHE: Playing an active role as citizens
During this unit we will be investigating how pupils roles as citizens within the home, school and wider communities may change as they grow older. During this unit we hope to develop pupils sense of self and social responsibility at a local, national and global level.
PE: Gymnastics and Netball
PE this term will usually be on a Monday and Wednesday. However, we would suggest that PE kits stay in school in case of any unforeseen changes. Both indoor and outdoor kit will be required, this includes a pair of well fitting trainers for pupils to change into.
This term we hope to continue to encourage the pupils use of Read Theory and the newly introduced Times Tables Rockstars. All pupils within Year 5 have their own personal username and password to log into these websites. Please let a member of the Year 5 team know if your child needs these user details again.
