Welcome to Year 5!
The class teacher is Mr Jones and the assistant is Miss Burns
We are looking into habitats around the world this term.
Year 5 used their pupil voices to decide on the habitat of deserts.
We will be doing lots of research into the different animals and plants found in the desert and where they are located around the world. Also, we will look into how the desert habitat differs to our habitat here in Swansea and Wales.
In maths we are looking at the properties of squares and rectangles and also angles.
We will then be looking at time and how it is recorded.
We will be using some data handling skills to look at levels of rainfall as part of our topic.
LITERACY AND LANGUAGE
We are working towards writing an encyclopedia entry based on our topic. We will be looking at all of the features of information texts (non-chronological reports) and creating ideas for what makes a successful piece of writing.
We are currently reading 'The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates' and will be looking at characters feelings throughout the book and using our Empathy skills.
We are using the habitat of the desert to understand living things and how they fit into this world.
We are translating from Welsh to English and visa versa, increasing our vocabulary and understanding language patterns. We have used questions in Welsh to help us locate deserts around the world.
