Year 5 will be having a very busy Summer Term. Our topic is the Monarchy since 1066 and we will be studying the reigns of a number of memorable Kings and Queens including the Tudors and the Victorians. We will also be learning about the life of Elizabeth II in the lead up to her Platinum Jubilee. As usual, we will plan and complete a range of activities to develop our keys skills. In addition to exploring historical themes and our skills based work we will be doing in class; each child will choose an aspect of the monarchy throughout history which interests them and they will then plan and complete a project of their own. They will then use this project to inform a Big Write which will be an information report. In art we will be studying and creating Tudor portraits and Victorian silhouettes In maths, will continue to develop our calculation and problem solving skills as well as using our mathematical skills to draw and measure angles, including missing angles accurately. We will also be problem solving using 2D and 3D shape. In Science, following on from our work on Habitats and Adaptation, we will be studying the lifecycles of a variety of plants and animals including humans.. During the Summer Term we will also undertake an Adventurous Outdoor Activity as part of the PE curriculum. We will take part in a Mountain Challenge which will involve Year 5 navigating and walking to the summit of three peaks, Barrow, Style End and Outerside. Weather permitting, outdoor PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon up until May half term when this will change to fit in with our sports coaching programme. Spelling homework will continue to be given on a Friday to help prepare for our Friday spelling test the following week. Maths homework will be given out on Thursday to be completed over the weekend and handed in on the following Monday
