YEAR 5 - Cannon and Chatsworth


Hi Year 5! I'm Miss Doyle. I am looking forward to teaching you this year and making your learning exciting and memorable. I can never choose just one favourite subject but this half term I have really enjoyed teaching writing in relation to the Anglo-Saxons. I am so excited for next half term when we immerse ourselves in our new topic, space.

Greetings Year 5! I’m Mr Farmer, your class teacher in Cannon Class. I am excited to continue the incredible start you have made to the year,  as always, I will endeavour to make your learning fun, engaging and meaningful. As many of you already know, I absolutely love Maths, but I have to say our writing this half term has been extremely impressive and staff across school have commented on your amazing learning. I am ecstatic to start our next topic about space, where we go on a journey through the Milky Way!

What We're Learning This Half Term

Mathematics: Multiplication

In maths, we'll be diving deep into multiplication. Get ready to spend plenty of time on TT Rockstars as this half term, we are going to nail your timetables.

English: A Focus on Space

Our English lessons will take us on an exciting journey through inspirations of space travel. We will even be learning about the first man to step foot on the moon.

Science: Space

Science is all about space and planets this half term. We will be exploring the solar system, galaxies and everything in between. There will be lots of opportunities for working scientifically.

Curriculum Focus: Science - Space

In our curriculum sessions, we'll continue our learning journey and focus on many elements of space, the stars and space travel. From Jupiter to Mars, it's going to be an exciting journey through space.

PE: Tag Rugby/Hockey

This half term, we are delving into two new sports that involve teamwork and a high level of coordination to be successful.

Creative Arts: Art

In order to explore our creativity, we will be imitating the inspirational work of the abstract artist Peter Thorpe. Recreating his space illustrations, we will be mastering our techniques using bright oil pastels.

Homework: MyMaths

Each week, we will be setting homework on MyMaths for you to complete. We will send home your logins on your first day back after half term. There is also the opportunity to complete a creative challenge from the homework menu.

We're looking forward to a fantastic half term and we can’t wait to continue our fantastic start to Year 5.
