Year 5

Class Page for Year 5

Welcome back to 2018 in Year 5 at Bishop's Tachbrook School!

Welcome back to a new term. We have so much to look forward to in the Spring term.

Our Literacy focus this term is looking at a selection of plays by Shakespeare and recognising vocabulary and structures that are used in his style of writing. This will be followed later in the term by looking at the styles of Argument and Debating with a Grammar focus of developing our use of punctuation, including semi-colons and punctuating bullet points.

This will be complemented later in the term with our History focus on the Tudors and how they began to explore the world.  In Geography we will be focusing on Shakespeare's Stratford for our Fieldwork trip with Year 6.

We will continue to work on multiplication and division in our Maths lessons and then following on to all sorts of Fun with Fractions!

During our Science work we will start to look at materials and their uses and changes around the world.  Followed by a focus on what exists beyond our planet and space exploration.  In our IT and Computing sessions we will be focusing on E-Safety, as always, and developing our use of Databases.

We are also looking forward to after Half-Term, when Year 5 begin their specialist Brass Music lessons! We will continue our Sports and Fitness with our Onside Team and also focus on a Dance module.

Our whole school focus this term is Perseverance.

If you have anything you would like to share with us, please do let us know.

Mrs Rastall and Miss Jeffery look forward to another exciting and fun-filled term learning together!
