Welcome to Morvah! 
Welcome back Morvah class! We have had such a great start to year 5 and I cannot wait to see what fun the spring term brings!
Our spring term topic is 'The Plague'. Throughout this topic the children will learn all about the great plague and how this impacted London. We will also spend time investigating and fact finding for ourselves using some brilliant primary sources online. Our geography will be linked to our history topic of the Plague and will give the children an opportunity to use globes, maps and atlases to explore more of Europe. We will look in detail at how the plague travelled across Europe so rapidly and which (more populated) cities would have been greatest effected.
In our RE sessions, the children will be exploring the overall enquiry question: 'Why do Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah?'. We will be following an Understanding Christianity unit focused on Christian beliefs about God. In this unit of R.E we will explore how incarnation and Jesus as the Messiah fits into the ‘big story’ within the bible. To do this we will analyse different biblical texts, exploring the effect they have on Christians in everyday life.
Science this term will see us continue our study of earth and space before moving on to investigate properties and changes of materials. Both of these topics are great fun and give us plenty of opportunity for hands on scientific investigation. 
Please see below to find our termly plan and chilli challenge homework grid for the spring term.
Homework - 
 At St Uny Church of England Academy, we believe homework is anything children do outside of the normal school day that contributes to their learning, in response to guidance from the school. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents/carers to support the children's learning.
Our chilli challenge grids give children a great range of activities and crafts to get busy with throughout the term.
Reading: Reading is a lifelong skill that we try to develop as your child continues their journey through our school. We are keen to develop a love of books and escapism as early as possible, which is why we are introducing ‘Reading Karate’ this year. This is a reward based system for reading at home, which results in the children moving up through coloured ‘belts’ (wristbands) depending on how many ‘reads’ they have completed. We would greatly appreciate your support with this new initiative, not only by listening to your child read but by perhaps sharing some of your favourite books from your childhood with them too. 
Maths: St Uny Church of England Academy has invested in ‘Timestables Rockstars’, an online resource for learners to practise their multiplication skills. This will enable children to become more fluent in their multiplication tables. Upper KS2 children should be completing 2 x 20min sessions per week.
 PE -
PE sessions are subject to change - we would therefore appreciate it if your child's full PE kit (white t-shirt, navy shorts, trainers/plimsolls) is in all week.
