Year 5 Newsletter

It has been an exciting start to the new term with the children stepping back in time to the 1920s and 1930s. We have begun looking at a range of sources to consider what life was like during those times and it has been fascinating to hear what the children already know. Over the next few weeks we will be planning our own antique auction where the children will take ownership for the listing of their own object before putting it under the gavel.

In English, we are reading Mary Poppins and this has provided a great stimulus for a range of learning across the curriculum. In maths, we are learning about fractions in a range of creative and meaningful contexts including building lego houses!!

In science, our topic is forces. We have already planned and carried out several investigations into friction and air resistance.
