Year 5

Year 5 have already had a fantastic start to the Autumn term this academic year; we’ve packed in a lot of fun and amazing learning opportunities.

Firstly, let’s introduce ourselves. Year 5 at Parkwood Academy consists of:

– 23 amazing children;

– Miss Newman – Class Teacher;

– Mrs Keeling – Class TA;

– Miss Edwards – Class TA.

This term in English we are writing stories based around imaginary worlds and will be writing biographies based around Tim Peake/Neil Armstrong. We’ve started working really hard to include many Band 5 features in our writing such as: suffixes (-ible, -able -ibly, -ence) , prefixes (dis-, un-, sub-), time conjunctions (meanwhile, firstly, after a while), as well as subject specific vocabulary.

Year 5 have produced some outstanding Maths work based around ‘number and place value’. During this term, we will be exploring and investigating Roman and Arabic numerals, two-step word problems, the 4 operations and rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.

Our topic ‘Infinity and Beyond!‘ is based around Space and our solar system. We have already used wet and dry media in Art to recreated Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting and are investigating the different planets in our solar system in Science.

We’re really looking forward to our trip to the Science Museum on Thursday 12th October. Please ensure you have completed your child’s permission slip and handed to the school office.

Keep watching this space and we will keep you updated with all of our fantastic learning!
