Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!
Our topic this half term is Stargazers – an exciting journey into space.
We have lots of exciting things planned for our space-themed topic this half term: Exploring the solar system, designing rockets and looking at our own position in this vast universe!
We are starting the year by exploring quest stories based on the David Roberts story ‘Little Red’ – a humorous adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood. We will be using talk for writing to learn a reliable pattern and eventually create our own thrilling quest tales in class. We look forward to sharing some of our best work with you!
In Maths we will be focusing on the following areas:
- Number and Place Value
- Properties of shapes
- Position and direction
However, our big push with our children is times tables. Children are expected to know them all by the end of year five so it would be great for an extra push at home aswell as in school!
Earth and Space – an exploration of the solar system, the reasons for night and day and how a rocket is blasted into space form part of this exciting unit of science work.
