Year 5 Rochester

We have had a great start to the year so far, well done to everyone for coming back and being so enthusiastic and eager to learn


So far this term we have looked at place value, including Roman numerals, ordering and comparing numbers and rounding. We have used concrete, pictoral and written methods to help cement our understanding of this area.

We started the term with river poems to link in with this terms topic (Raging Rivers). We had a look at some water themed poetry then wrote some of our own with fantastic results.


Now we are using the Water Babies as a stimulus to write our own narrative. Our stories begin from us falling (or jumping) into the river and take the reader on a magical underwater journey filled with new friends, excitement and adventure.

Our topic this term is Raging Rivers! We are using our map skills to locate rivers around the world and take a closer look at what the land around them is used for. We have investigated why rivers and streams are so important and why we choose to build towns and cities so close to them. Soon we will be researching some of the worlds most famous rivers in order to write an information text about them.
