This half term, Year 5 will be reading Wonder, a book with a strong moral message on the importance of kindness and acceptance. This book will inspire our writing of a persuasive letter and a diary entry as one of the characters from the book.
We will be learning about the continent North America, with a particular focus on Manhattan as this is the setting of our class book.
In music, we will be learning to sing and play Livin' on a Prayer by American Rock band Bon Jovi.
In STEAM Science lessons, Year 5 will be learning about materials and states of matter.
In Maths, we begin with a recap of properties of shape before moving on to place value. STEAM Maths lessons will develop our skills in measure.
