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:
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:
- Area and Perimeter
The children need to continue to learn their times tables facts. They are expected to know them all by the end of year five so it would really help if they could continue to practice them at home,
In science, we will be learning about the human life cycle and describing the changes as they develop into old age.
The children will be learning all about the birth of Middlesbrough, including events of the Industrial Revolution and its lasting impact. They will learn all about the key individuals who were responsible for the birth of our town and the industries which shaped the history of Middlesbrough.
We will be exploring the question: ‘What does discrimination mean?’ including: the consequences of discrimination, how to recognise bullying and how to challenge stereotypes.
We are continuing to explore the question: If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship? Through this questions, we will learn about different places of worship and why they are so significant.
