This term in Lighthouse Class...
What an exciting term ahead of us in Year 5! In Literacy, we'll be learning about poetry, with a focus on haikus, and then moving on to explore biographies. In maths, we'll be learning about place value, including roman numerals, and improving our mental arithmetic number skills. I'm also really looking forward to delving deeper into our first topic of the year with the children - space!
In P.E. during the Autumn term, we'll be going swimming every week - a real calendar highlight for all of the children! Meanwhile in science, we'll be finding out more about forces, including air and water resistance and investigating why unsupported objects fall towards the Earth.
