Term 1: Fight for your Right!
Golden Thread: Equality and Diversity
Big Idea: Protest
This term, Year 5 will be immersed in the British and American History of protests. They will learn about the Suffrage movement of the early 20th century, as well as the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-20th century and how both of these movements have had an everlasting impact on the world we live in today. The children will also have the opportunity to consider and discuss how these movements echo in today’s society and how the themes of these social histories can be seen in modern day protest movements.
Please can you ensure PE kits are WORN into school on our allocated P.E. Days. This kit should be appropriate for outdoor P.E. and should include appropriate outdoor footwear.
Our PE sessions for this term are on Mondays and Wednesdays, so PE kits will need to be worn on these days.
Reading is an integral part of the primary curriculum so please ensure you are reading every day and recording it in your Reading/Spelling Journals. These are the little yellow books and should have your weekly spellings in them at the front, as well as space to record your reading progress at the back.
Take a look at the Year 5 Recommended Reading List for ideas on age appropriate texts!
Spellings will be given on the Friday of each week and will be tested on the following Friday. There will be 6 spellings given that follow a particular rule each week, with 4 'mystery' words tested to see if the children have learnt the spelling rule as well as the spellings given.
Alongside this, we will also be focusing on our statutory spelling list for Years 5 and 6 this year, so each child will be given 20 spellings from this list per term and will then be tested at the end of that term. Please ensure that the weekly spelling rule, the 6 weekly spellings and the 20 termly spellings are being practised regularly.
It is also important that children know the meaning of the words they are learning to spell... as we might ask you to put one into a sentence!
