Welcome to 5LI
Our connector this term is:'
'Isles of Diversity'
This term the children will learn about the United Kingdom and the human and physical geography of it.
Children can start researching about England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They can bring their research to class for the geography lessons and share what they have found out, to enrich the learning.
Encourage your child to be an independent learner - start their research now!!
English lessons. In English the children will learn about the myths and legends of the British Isles and other cultures. What makes a narrative a myth or legend. They will then compose a narrative of their own by drawing a plot line, using drama to assist their drafting of the story and then write the final copy to be presented to the class and evaluated.
Maths lessons will focus on angles around a point, how to calculate missing angles and lengths in shapes. Pupils will learn about regular and irregular polygons. They will also use co-ordinates in the first quadrant as well as translate and reflect shapes. Finally, the focus will be on units of measure with a strong emphasis on conversion. This will also include metric to imperial measurement conversions. All children should make sure they know the times tables to support their maths in class.
Science: In science, we are describing the changes as humans develop into old age. The children will draw time lines to indicate stages in the growth and development of humans. This will build upon our learning in SRE about the changes that take place during puberty.
Remember Big Read - Thursday 5th July all parents/guardians welcome.
Reading is so important.
Please ensure that your child reads their home/school reading book every day for a minimum of 10 minutes as well as writing a comment in their record book about what they have read.
If parents/guardians are interested in learning more about the teaching of reading and how to support their child, there is a free reading course being conducted in the school in partnership with Haringey Family Learning Department. Please see the Reading Co-ordinator - Mrs Imbrah.
Ask your child what they are reading about and discuss it with them.
