Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mr T Watts
Hello and a warm welcome to Year Five. We have lots of exciting things planned to get the children engaged with the First World War and thinking deeply about what it means to be a hero. We will be visiting Teignmouth Museum to examine artefacts first-hand before working towards writing a letter from the front (with a twist).
During this term, we are reading ‘Private Peaceful’, which is set during the war, and examining heroism through this book; hopefully we will be able to appreciate the many facets of a hero and form our own opinions of what one looks like.
This term we will be looking at place value, additive reasoning and multiplicative reasoning. We will be challenging the children to think carefully about how they can represent their maths in new ways to show what is really happening and then apply it in new situations.
