Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!
Our topic this half term is Time Traveller – we are historians!
We have lots of exciting things planned for our ‘back in time’ themed topic this half term: Exploring surreal artists such as Salvador Dali, learning about World War 1 and studying ‘A Christmas Carol’ in the lead up to Christmas.
We are starting by exploring recounts based on the short film, ‘The Piano’- an animation that takes us back in time and leads us through the memories of the main character. We will be focusing on improving our range of vocabulary to describe key events that happened in his life.
In Maths we will be focusing on the following areas: * Multiplication * Division * Area and Perimeter However, our big push with our children continues to be times tables. Children are expected to know them all by the end of year five so if they could continue to practice them at home, that would really help.
Properties and their Materials – an investigative topic which explores the properties of different materials; dissolving and retrieving from solutions and changes of state .
