St Peter's Community Primary School

Year 5

This term in Lighthouse Class...

Summer term:  What an exciting term ahead of us in Year 5! This term’s topic is the Circle of Life and we’ll be starting this in style in Literacy by learning about the Just So stories and Aesops fables. We'll be using these to write our own animal origin story and then our own fable.
Meanwhile in Maths, we'll be using our number and place value to help us learn new things about adding and subtracting decimals, and comparing percentages. I'm also really looking forward to Geography, where we'll be reviewing and improving our knowledge of major geographical features around the world.
In P.E. during the Summer term, we'll be working with the Premier League Primary Stars programme to learn more improving our sports skills and leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  While in science, we'll be finding out more about the life cycles of plants, insects and birds as well as learning more about food chains and how animals have adapted to live in their surroundings.
Sex Education
The Sex Ed lessons in Year 5 cover puberty and the change of relationships which we experience as we grow older. We cover body changes, physical changes and hormonal changes and we also talk about different parts of the male and female body and their scientific names. Then we talk about how sperm fertilizes an egg and how this is connected to periods.
