Teacher Profiles

In Year 5, we have had a fantastic half-term so far, getting stuck into our topic ‘Space- The Final Frontier’! We have been inspired by the artist El Gato Gomez and created space themed front covers for our topic books. These look extremely effective and really brighten up the year 5 corridor as they are all on display. 

We have learnt all about the planets in our solar system as well as the movement of the Earth around the Sun. After learning more about the origin of the moon, we shall then be focussing on how light travels, how our eyes take in information so we can see, the phases of the moon and looking at forces such as gravity. 

In Maths, we have been understanding and manipulating larger numbers and using a formal written method for addition and subtraction. Next, we will be learning about written methods for multiplication and division. 

In Literacy, we have been learning to write a recount of a visit to a space themed theme park. We all designed a space themed ride and included these in our writing. Some of the rides were very impressive, some scary and some educational rides too!
We have also begun to look at setting descriptions and different descriptive techniques. We will be writing our own setting description of space after half term. 

As December approaches, we will be finishing our Space topic and then start looking towards Christmas with a range of exciting artistic activities.
