Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class page

This page contains a mixture of information and photos of our learning.  From time to time, in addition to the weekly homework, extra work will be set on Google Classroom.

The EXPLORE term

This term our theme is 'EXPLORE'.  Our core subjects of Maths and English will be taught on a daily basis and the other core subject, RE, will be taught alternately with PSHE every other week.


I am following the White Rose timetable for Maths.  By clicking on this link, 'White Rose' and then clicking on the Year 5 tab you will be able to see the topics and when we'll be studying them.  I will be using White Rose resources alongside Herts Essentials for Maths and other resources.


Our focus subjects which feed into the 'EXPLORE' theme are Science and Geography.  In science the children will be exploring living things and their habitats.  They will be investigating the process of reproduction in some plants and animals.  They will also be learning about the life cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds.  In geography we will be finding out about physical and human geography.  The children will be locating signficant physical features in the world and examining their topographical features.  As we examine different habitats we will look at how human activity is impacting physical geography.  Through all of our 'EXPLORE' learning we will trying to answer the question: 'How is planet Earth changing?'


The children will also be exploring how information is shared in their weekly computing lessons and enjoying sessions in Forest School every alternate Wednesday.
