Summer Term

Welcome back Class 5. Hope you have all had an enjoyable Easter holiday. We have lots to look forward to in our Summer term. 

In our English lessons, we will continue our work on the poem ‘The Jabberwocky’. As well as some drama and musical composition, we will be using our imaginations to write diary entries. We will then focus on the features of biographies, which will include researching and writing our own celebrity biography. 

For maths this term, we will be focusing on: percentages, geometry, position and movement. Later in the term, we will cover: measurements, volume, Roman Numerals, area and perimeter. 

In our history lessons, we will continue to learn about Henry VIII and his six wives. Later in the term, we will study different aspects of Tudor life including: life in a Tudor town/village and exploration during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.  In art, we will have the opportunity to research and produce portraits of Tudor monarchs.

We will continue to learn about Mountains in geography including how mountains are made. 

In Science, we will complete our work on properties and changes of materials. For computing, we are using Kodu software to complete our own 3D platform game. During French lessons, we are learning how to introduce our family and friends. 

Music lessons will continue weekly with a focus on composition. 

Swimming lessons have restarted – remember to bring either a one piece costume and cap, or swimming trunks.
