Summer Term

Welcome to Year 5
Meet our Teachers
Our Summer Learning

In the Summer Term, Year 5 put on their discoverers’ hats and delve into the past with the Ancient Maya and Ancient Greeks. We look at the legacies that we have the latter to thank for. In Maths, we start by looking at Statistics and how data can be both plotted and interpreted from graphs, before moving on to how to read tables and timetables, a very useful skill! Later Maths topics include Shape, Position and Direction, Decimals, Negative numbers, Converting units and Volume. 

In Guided Reading, we shall be continuing to read a range of texts, covering fiction, non-fiction, picture books, graphic novels and poetry to broaden our reading experience as well as develop our reading skills. 

In English, we shall be reading ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’ by Maz Evans and linking our drama, fiction and non-fiction writing to the text. 

In Science, we will explore... 

In Art, we're studying Keith Haring's graffiti style, and we'll be finishing the year with our food topic in DT.
