YEAR 5

Mrs Antoszkiw

English

In our English lessons this term, we will be reading The Adventures of Odysseus. I am sure that this is a text we will all enjoy – especially when Odysseus battles the Cyclops! We will be working hard to improve our descriptive vocabulary and writing our own description of the beastly Cyclops. We will also write newspaper reports about Odyssesus’ meeting with Circe and I can’t tell you any more than that as I will spoil what is to come! I am already looking forward to reading your fantastic writing and sharing this text with you.

Maths

Our focus for the first half term will be place value.

We will be learning to read, write, order and compare numbers to 1,000,000.

We will then move on to addition and subtraction which will include adding and subtracting numbers with more than four digits, using formal written methods.

We will continue to work on learning number facts throughout this term and any extra time you are able to spend on TT Rock Stars and Hit the Button (available on the links at the top of the page) will really help.

Topic

Our topic for this term is Ancient Greece. We will be learning about life in the different city-states of Athens and Sparta, ancient Greek beliefs and comparing the ancient and modern-day Olympic Games. In addition to this, in Art, we will be looking at ancient Greek vases before designing and making our own.  I am sure this will be an exciting and enjoyable topic for us all to get stuck into.
