For the Summer Term our topic is World War Two. The children will explore what life was like during World War Two for evacuees, people living within threatened areas and soldiers in the army. We will learn about important names in our history such as Churchill and Anne Frank. Within geography, we will explore world maps to help develop our understanding of how the war looked for people in different countries across the world.
Our Literacy work for this term will link to the topic and the children will write newspaper reports, biographies, diary entries and letters. The children's writing will be inspired by the focus text 'Letters From The Lighthouse'.
Children will have weekly spellings and times tables to learn, these will be sent home on a Thursday to allow children to practice, and tested the following Monday. Children are expected to read daily and complete their reading records. Where possible please take the time to read with your child, focusing on their reading comprehension skills. Some weeks children will also have a maths or literacy based task to complete.
This half term, all children within Year 5 will have the opportunity to tackle the climbing wall and this will take place on a rota basis on Monday afternoons. This will be in place of Outdoor education for the first half term of Summer. Children will then return to Outdoor Education after May half term.
Children will have PE every Friday afternoon, this term this will take place with Sports Coaching North West with a focus on outdoor athletics. Please ensure children have PE kit and suitable shoes for both indoor and outdoor. PLEASE label all PE kits and school uniform to save us time and you money!
