Term 3 - Do Adventures Need Leaders?

Welcome to term 3 of Year 5! We have lots of exciting things planned, which you can read about below...


For Term 3, our class text will be 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell - an exciting story that follows Fred, Con, Lila, and Max on their way back to England from Manaus when the plane they’re on crashes. For days they survive alone, until Fred finds a map that leads them to a ruined city, and to a secret...

For our writing sessions, we will be developing our adventure narrative skills and turning our hand to diary writing inspired by Scott of The Antarctic!


In maths, year 5 will be continuing their work on more advanced multiplication of division, tackling 4 digit by 2 digit long multiplication and dividing increasingly larger numbers with remainders. We will then be jumping back into fractions of quantities and exploring their equivalent decimal representations.

This term will have a geography focus as we explore the ranges of maps available to geographers and develop our understanding of the key features of maps, including on digital maps, and compare them. We will be learning how to use the eight compass points to give directions and give grid references to locate places on a map. By comparing maps of the same place, children will also learn about the way that places have changed over time. 


Free Vector | Types of force for children physics educationalFor science, we will be exploring different materials, their uses and their properties, as well as dissolving, separating mixtures and irreversible changes. Children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate the properties of materials to find the most suitable material for different purposes.  They will have the opportunity to work in a hands-on way to explore dissolving, identifying the different variables in their own investigations.
