Topic Work Summer 2
This term we will be taking a journey through our rainforests to discover where they are, what they are like and who lives in them.
Where are rainforests located and what are their main features?
Can we create a class rainforest?
Why is the Amazon so important to the South American rainforest?
Why are rainforests often in the news?
Can you make some large leaf art?
What can you find out about the endangered species that live in the rainforests?
In numeracy this half term we will be looking at nets (a 3D shape folded out into their flat shape). We will also be working on percentages and how they are linked to fractions and decimals.
Keep working on strategies to help you problem solve.
Don't forget to keep revising the mental maths strategies we've already worked upon for our weekly numeracy tests.
Practice your times tables in readiness for our weekly challenges.
Literacy this term will focus upon poetry. As a class we will be looking closely at the Dr Seuss' poem The Lorax.
In S.P.A.G we will be looking at modal verbs; what are they and how are they used in our writing.
Pssst Don't forget you will still need to use all of your other SPAG learnings to work your way up to the top step of the literacy success ladder.
Spelling is important too and the 5/6 spelling list can be found at the foot of this webpage.
Our science work will be closely linked to this terms' topic as we study the life cycles of plants and animals.
In our ICT lessons we will continue to develop our programming skills .
Our art will be linked to this term's topic and we will be creating artwork based upon leaf patterns.

A magical moment is a special event that you experienced in your life. It could be funny, thoughtful, simple or heroic, but what matters is that special feeling you experienced.
Year 5 visited Portland Cricket Ground for friendly matches against Kingsway school. Everybody got involved but not everyone understood some of the scoring and why you ran sometimes but, on other occasions, were given a 4 or 6.
Faith to Mr Ecclestone - "I don't understand the difference between 4 and 6"
As Mr Ecclestone started to explain a voice from behind said
Thank you Olivia you really made the group laugh.
During the term we will be looking for examples of fantastic work and posting it here.
Will your work be on the WOW Wall?
Well done to Nathan, Maxwell, Libby and Tyler B for producing some excellent science work whilst we were learning about evaporation and chromatology.
Millie your Roman Numeral numeracy presentation was fantastic .
Louise you showed a great depth of understanding in your RE work.
Their work is displayed in the classroom and they have been awarded success points.
We will be learning our brass instruments on Monday afternoons.
PE will take place on Monday afternoons and Thursday Mornings - It is beginning to get colder so I recommend that you have trousers and shorts in your PE kit. Earrings must be removed prior to lessons. Staff can not remove earrings but can offer tape to cover the earring. Children who are not able to remove their own earrings or have tape applied will not be allowed to participate in PE lessons. *
* Further details on this are available in our policies section on the school website
