Year 5

Autumn 1 Half Term Overview 

 

We have had a fun, productive first half term in year 5. In maths we have been working on developing our knowledge on number and place value. We have deepened our understanding of addition and subtraction with greater depth challenges to extend our learning. 

 

Our first English topic was based on Roald Dahl where we developed our language choices, designed our own sweets and wrote a piece of persuasive writing. We designed our own space craft and wrote an explanation of how it works. 

 

In learning challenge we have answered the following questions - Will we ever send another human to the moon? and Were the Anglo Saxons really smashing?

This term Year 5 have had Konflux Theatre Group in school and they created their own play based on bullying. Both classes had workshops with a drama coach and then came together to perform the whole play to an audience.

Spring 2016

This term Year 5 have been really busy!

In Science we learnt about Space and the different planets in our solar system. We visited the National Space Centre in Leicester, where the children enjoyed learning about the Space Race and various astronauts.

In English, we have been learning about Myths and Legends, focussing particularly on 'Theseus and the Minotaur' and 'Beowulf'. The children have written great retells of these wonderful stories, and have also written a sequel for 'Beowulf'.

In Maths, we have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages and the links between them. We have been finding fractions and percentages of numbers.

Autumn Term 2015

This has been a very busy term for Year 5. Our first Learning Challenge, 'Can you feel the force?' involved us exploring forces as well as designing, making and testing parachutes to identify which were the safest.

We have also been learning about Brazil and are now considering the question 'Why should the Rainforest be important to us all?'

For our SEAL topic we have all been involved in an anti-bullying play by Firehorse Productions.
