Year 5

Class Page for Year 5

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Year 5 at Bishop's Tachbrook School!

Our Literacy focus this term is looking at a selection of persuasive writing and different types of persuasive texts, like adverts and letters.  We are also reading and composing different styles of poetry based on specific imagery.  Throughout our fiction topic we will be reading the 'The Eighteenth Emergency' by Betsy Byers; if any of you would like to have a look at the book beforehand that would be brilliant!

Our History focus on the Tudors and how they began to explore the world continues with our focus in Geography based in Stratford for our fieldwork trip with Year 6.

We will continue to work on multiplication and division in our Maths lessons, following on to learning all there is to know about percentages too!

Our Science trip the Space Centre was a great success and the children were brilliant ambassadors for the school. We will also be focussing on life cycles and we have recently welcomed a special delivery of eggs to be incubated in the classroom! Watch this space...

During our DT sessions we are very lucky to be welcoming the Head Baker from Morrisons to help us bake some of our very own bread designs - yummy!

In our IT and Computing sessions we will be focusing on E-Safety, as always, and developing our use of databases.

We will continue our Sports and Fitness with our Onside Team and also focus on an athletics module.

Our whole school focus this term is Respect.

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!
