Welcome to Summer 1






Narrative Fiction Writing







In reading lessons, we will continue to develop our comprehension skills so that we have strategies for helping us understand more complex texts. We will focussing on complete texts over a number of days, practising and applying a different comprehension skill each day or every few days. We will continue to read and be read to for a range of purposes across the curriculum. 


We will be challenging ourselves to read more widely in our independent reading. This will help us to make more informed choices about what we enjoy reading and what books to choose to read for pleasure.





In Maths, we are going to be be following the Maths No problem Scheme.  


We will be developing our knowledge and understanding on geometry, position and direction and measurement and how we can use these in the real world.








Materials and their properties.












Comparing the Mayan and ancient Greek civilisations.











In Computing, we are going to be learning about Online safety and how to make the right choice when using technology. 

In Computer Science we will also be learning how to combine sequences of instructions and procedures to turn devices on and off and how to design algorithms that use repetition & 2-way selection. 



In Music, we will be using the Charanga scheme to learn about how music is used to bring us together. 


How does music improve our world? 

We have been writing our very own raps, all about the environment, using our knowledge of rhythm, tempo and style. Here are some of 5MR’s brilliant work!



In Orienteering, we will follow our Whole School Cross-Curricular Orienteering Scheme of Work. We will demonstrate how to set and orientate a map when moving round courses. We will plan efficient routes and navigate to control markers during scoring events. We will also experience courses using all eight compass points. We will share ideas, encourage others, work in team situations and recognise our successes and ways we can improve.


In Year 5, our focus question for the year is:

Where can we find guidance about how to live our lives?


This half term our focus question is: 

How do people decide what to believe?







What does it mean to be a citizen?


Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
