Welcome to Year 5 Summer Term 2018

Summer Term – Year 5

English

This term we will be studying a new book called ‘The Beast’. We will be developing our suspense writing and building tension.

Science

We are studying two topics this term: ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’ and ‘Living Things and their Habitats’.

The second topic will link with an art installation that is taking place at St John’s Church.

History

Our topic this term will be ‘The Vikings and Anglo Saxons and their struggle for the Kingdom of England’.

Computing

The children have been creating a short film based in a country that they have studied in Geography. They have been using ‘Green Screen’ software to travel all over Europe and we look forward to showing you what the children have produced at our Oscars Evening.

Art

We will be creating and evaluating 3D sculptures.

PSHE

In the final half of the term we will be covering the topic of reproduction. This is part of our Sex and Relationships Education (SRE).
