Welcome to Year 5
Here is what you Need to know About Our Class
In Maths, children will become confident in their methods for using all four operations with larger numbers (three digits and then four digits). They will also be able to see how maths fits into everyday life and other areas of study, learning about fractions, decimals and percentages and they will calculate the area and perimeter of different shapes.
In English, we will read a range of different genres. Children will continue to use their skills of inference of characters’ motives and feelings and will start to think about figurative language and how it is used. They will learn to spell a variety of more sophisticated words with different prefixes and suffixes.
In Science, we will explore Living things and their habitats (including lifecycles of a mammal, amphibian, insect and bird), Animals including humans (focusing on changes from birth to old age), Properties and changes of materials, Earth and space and Forces.
