Welcome back to a new term and a new opportunity to do some great learning.
Year 5 will be learning about Harlow and it's history this half-term. I am so excited to find out what your children already know but also to find out more about our local area. We begin this topic by visiting the Harlow Museum where we will be learning about the creation of the new part of Harlow, during the War! I encourage you to send in photos of your children around Harlow so that we can add them to our class display!
In Maths, we will continue with our spiral curriculum. This means revisiting and building on prior learning. We begin with place value, continue on with adding and subtracting, a big focus will be on multiplication and division and then we will end the half-term with fractions.
In English, we will be refining our punctuation knowledge and our use of using complex sentences. Children are still showing they are not fluent in writing by forgetting our non-negotiables like full stops and capital letters. These need to be reinforced at home as well please - Especially when the children are writing answers for their comprehensions. Fluent writers are able to show consistent use of punctuation and correct grammar in all written situations. The children will love our unit on writing building tension based on Alma - a short video.
