Welcome to Mars Class!
Welcome to Mars Class. We are made up of eighteen Year 5 children. Mr Chapman teaches the Class every day and Mrs Clements is the lovely helper on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning.
Summer Term 2018
Below is what we will be learning this half term.
In English we will be wwriting persuasive letters regarding key issues that we see on the news. We will focus on Deforestation to begin with. Following persuasive writing, we will be reading and writing some river poetry to go alongside our Topic.
In Maths this term we will be looking at decimals and properties of shapes. To begin with, we will be looking at different strategies to solve problems for numbers with up to three decimal places. With shapes, we will be looking at different features of 2D and 3D shapes and measuring angles.
Our topic this term is 'Mountains and Rivers.'
We have begun this Topic by creating shelters for advernturers during Forest School. This was very exciting adn the children enjoyed getting dirty- sorry parents! We have then conducted research on the World's largest mountain, Everest. Our next focus will be on the different features of rivers. This will link in with our Residential Trip to Marle Hall.
In Science we will be looking at Earth and Space.
During this topic, we will consider distances between planets, the different phases of the moon and the movement of the Earth in comparison to diferent planets.
PE this half term will be on a Tuesday and Friday. On Tuesday we will be practicing our Country Dancing routine for the celebration and after this we will work on Athletics in preparation for Sports Day. On Fridays we will be playing tennis. This will be led by Campden Aces Tennis Coaches.
This half term also sees the return of Broadway's Residential Visit to Marle Hall. This is for all Year 4 and 5 children. The date for this is May 14th-17th. This will work brilliantly alongside our Mountains and Rivers topic.
Take a look at Mars Class' zoo designs. Using our understanding of perimeter and area, we designed zoos that were fit for different types of animals.
