Mr James Mann
Welcome to Year 5!
Term 1: Magnificent Mayans
This term our class topic is Magnificent Mayans. In English, we will be writing adventure stories creating diaries, writing instructions and poetry. We will be reading Katherine Rundell’s Explorer as our class text this term.
We will also be learning about how the Mayans lived, what they built, the gods they believed in, the food they ate and the art that they created.
In science this term, we will be investigating forces including; gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction.
Our learning in maths this term will include Place Value, Addition, Statistics and Shape. The focus on Maths fluency will continue with skill building around using a range of operational skill and knowledge to solve problems quickly and efficiently. This will include times table knowledge which will form a part of all homework this term.
Our school values during term 1 are courage and appreciation. The children have made a brilliant start to the year in very unusual circumstances. I am very proud of them
Many thanks for all your support,
