Kingfishers - Year 5

Autumn – Term 2

Welcome to Kingfishers' class page!


This half term, Kingfishers will be studying the Second World War, including a trip to Bletchley Park to investigate the skills of the code-breakers who helped change the course of the war! 


In our writing lessons, we will be reporting on the differences between our modern Christmas and the ones celebrated during the war, and also creating a diary entry from the point of view of an evacuee, far from home. 


Our current book is Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce. It is a tale that touches on the subjects of loss and whether money can buy you happiness.Throughout all of our reading lessons, we will be focusing on using our VIPERs reading skills. These skills are vocabulary, inference, prediction, explain, retrieve and summarise. 


In maths this half term, we are exploring multiplication/division and measurement. Children will be building on the knowledge they have gained so far in their learning. 


Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:

Science – Earth and Space/Code Breaking

Computing - Online safety

RE - Sikhism 

PSHE - How we use our words matters

PE - Netball

Music - Brass lessons
