This term we are studying the properties of materials and Light in Science. We will also be looking in more detail about natural disasters such a volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes especially in the Americas. In the first half term, we will resume our gym classes, which will be on a Friday and in the second Spring term we will be learning how to cheerlead. In Computing, we will be learning how to use ICT to be an artist and how to be web developers.

As part of our continued work within the community Manchester United have teamed up with MEA central to provide football coaching exclusively to Year 5. These sessions will be for 1 hour and are on a Thursday. This is a 10-week course and will be our outdoor games sessions for this term. At the end of the course, we will take part in a celebration event based at MEAC where the children will play on the 3G pitches; this is scheduled for the 22nd March 2018.

Our English fiction focus this term will be Stories from another culture and a warning tale where as our non-fiction text will work on non-chronological reports and Instructional writing.

In addition to the half termly Brain Builder, children will be given weekly spellings, which we expect them to learn, they must also practise their times tables and read every night to an adult.
