Year 5

Summer Term Overview

 

This term Year 5 will be focusing on one of William Shakespeare’s famous plays: Julius Caesar.  We will be learning the sequence of events, analysing the characters, translating Shakespearean language into modern day ‘lingo’ and writing our own soliloquies and poems.  We will also be working with a director from the Primary Shakespeare Company to learn about the play through drama and to practise one of the scenes to perform.  The final performance will be at Haverstock School in front of pupils from other schools in Camden and then for the parents of the children taking part (please keep the evening of Friday 16th June free, one ticket will be allocated per child).  This topic will also flow into other subjects in the curriculum, particularly Design and Technology, when the children will be making their own pop up books to retell the story, and History when we will be introduced to the Renaissance period.

 

One of our main Science topics this term will be ‘Earth and Space’, where we will study the movement of the moon and the planets in our Solar System, as well as look at the rotation of the Earth and how this creates day and night.  Another topic will be ‘Living things and their habitats’.  We will be looking at the differences in the lifecycles of the main categories of animals, the life processes and reproduction in some plants and animals and finally looking at how environments can change and the impact this has on living things. 

 

Throughout our Computing topic, Year 5 will be learning how to create their own games.  We will be using our coding knowledge to plan, design and make our own games which will be published (or have a link to the correct address) on our school website.  This will enable all children to play their own games at home with their families.

 

In PE we will be improving our Athletics skills, as well as practising small sided striking and fielding games.
