Welcome to Year 5!
This term we are very excited to be exploring our big question - 'Should we accept our place in society?' We are going back in time to the Victorian period to look at the lives of children through our English text 'Street Child' and investigating the conditions of the workhouse. We are going to be looking at what impact Queen Victoria and the Industrial Revolution had on our lives today and how Britain has changed over the years.
In maths we are starting the term investigating fractions, decimals and percentages, then we will be looking at transformations of shapes using coordinates, converting units of measure and calculating with whole number and decimals.
After February half term, Year 5 are very excited to be starting their swimming lessons as part of the P.E!
