Year 5 Book Character
Welcome to Year 5 – Earth Class

Assalaamu- Alaikum.

A warm welcome back to the start of  the new academic year.

We have a busy term ahead.  Year 5 is an important year as it leads into the last year of primary school and the end of primary school tests. We aim to move the children on in their learning through practical and engaging tasks and plenty of discussion and sharing of ideas!

Meet the Teacher

It was great to meet many of you recently in the ‘Meet the Teacher’ session. Thank you for attending the meeting and Insha Allah you found this session informative.

I have added the Power point here for those parents who were not able to attend.

Please have a read through and speak to me if there are any questions.

What we are learning this Year/Term

English

During our English lessons this term, we will be reading a book called ‘There’s a boy in the girls’toilet’. The children will be writing a narrative, character descriptions and a diary entry.  The children  will use persuasive language to  write letters as well as writing poetry.

Reading 

This term we are focusing on comprehension skills. We will be reading a range of texts and discussing the meaning of the vocabulary. We will look at why the author has chosen to use  specific vocabulary and the  effect this has on the reader. Year 5 will learn how to  summarise by selecting the main points from the text.

Maths

This term we will be learning about Place Value.  We will learn to read and represent numbers up to 1,000,000.  The children will compare numbers to 1,000,000 using place value, make number patterns, use number lines and bar graphs.

Computing

This term children will be learning about E-safety and coding.  Children will discuss and understand the importance of keeping personal information safe.  They will understand issues concerning the reliability of sources and people online.

Science

This half term we will be  learning about forces.  The children  will investigate how different types of force affect movement.  the children will learn to recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

Topic

Our focus this term is Islamic Civilisation.  Children will be learning about how Islamic Civilisation impacts our lives today.  We will be learning about the Golden Age of Islam, The House of Wisdom and the discoveries and how the studies led by early Islamic scholars impact the wider world.

P.E

P.E. will be on Monday and Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E. Kit and suitable footwear.
