Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Our topics for this half term are 'Brainwaves' and 'Learning Critically Online'.  Throughout these units we will be exploring how different people learn and strategies we can use to help us concentrate and retain information.

As part of Learning Critically Online we will be thinking about how we can keep ourselves safe online including thinking about the information we choose to share with others.

In Maths we are focussing on place value and our understanding of number.  We will be learning to:

  • Read and write numbers to 1 million
  • Partition numbers to 1 million.
  • Round numbers to 1 million.
  • Compare and order numbers to 1 million.
  • Identify and write Roman numerals to 1,000.


Our English learning is based around the text 'Rose Blanche'.  It is a historical story told beautifully. A part of our learning we will be writing to discuss through balanced arguments. We will research questions, such as: Should children be allowed social media? Then we will debate and produce a magazine article.
