Angels - Year 5

Miss Edney


Well where do I begin with talking about The BFG? This book has and always will be a firm favourite of mine! As a child, I would read this book and then pick it up and re-read it to envelop myself in a world of mystery, magic and wonder. From the mysterious yet emotional beginning, where Sophie finds herself in an orphanage to the suspense-filled moment where she is snatched and whisked into a new, alluring and dominating world full of giants and adventure, you simply can’t put it down! Not only this, but I couldn’t help but love this book just that little bit more because the main character shares my name! The connection I had and still have with this book, and the enjoyment I get from this book means it has secured its place in my bookshelf forever more.

As a child I loved Enid Blyton's The Faraway Tree trilogy. The wonderful worlds at the top of the tree were an adventure to read and the characters were fascinating. Even now, as a grown up, I would still love to whizz down Moonface's slippery-slip!

My favourite childhood book has to be Matilda. Matilda is a strong female character who is very brave and inspiring as a kid of such a young age!

Summer 2
Welcome back everybody! We hope that you have had a lovely and relaxing half term break. 
For our Maths this half term, we will be delving into the mathematical world of Geometry, where we will be learning how to measure and draw angles using a protractor, learning how to calculate angles both on a straight line and at a point and within a range of shapes. As well as this, we will be exploring mathematical language focussing around position, translation and symmetry with practical activities embedded throughout to consolidate our learning.
For our English, we will be watching a short film called, 'The Ridge' and focussing on the purpose of writing to entertain. This will tie in perfectly with our topic learning for the half term, which is titled, 'Magnificent Mountains'. The focus for this will be Geography and art. In our Geography lessons, we will be learning about the different mountain types and their formation and the impact of tourism in this environment. In our Art lessons, we will be focusing on developing our sketching techniques and applying these to observational drawings. 
For our RE, we will be looking at Humanism and answering the key question: What matters most to Humanists and Christians?' For this unit, we will be exploring what people believe and what difference this makes to how people live. This will enable the children to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
We hope you find the resources below easy to access for supporting your child's learning at home and understanding the key objectives being covered. The list below includes:
-Knowledge Organisers
This explains the key information and facts your child needs to know by the end of their topic unit with some visual aids and key vocabulary we will learn too.
-Calculation Policy 
This provides you with information about the key mathematical concepts and how these are taught during this Key Stage.
