Year 5 - Autumn 1 & 2: Rock Star ! "Only shooting stars break the mould"


English: This term we will be focusing on the historical narrative poem The Highwayman and the novel Once by Morris Gleitzman. We will also have regular comprehension practise, grammar and focused spelling sessions.


Maths: In Autumn 1 we will be learning about place value of 5 and 6 digit numbers including ordering and comparing numbers. We will also be focusing on written and mental addition and subtraction methods.  In Autumn 2 we will be focusing on Multiplication and division. As well as looking at ordering, simplifying and investigating fractions.


Topic: We will be finding out about the Earth, sun and moon and forces. We will also be doing lots of music this term and finding out about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in History.


Music: This term we have Mr Bradshaw to work on an exciting music project. The children will form their own rock bands to create their own versions of popular songs.  We also have a trip planned to Tatton park for after half term. You will get a letter with the details soon.


P.G.L. deposits need to be in asap. We will be sending final numbers to PGL before half term so if you haven’t paid your deposit we will not secure a place for your child. If there are any problems with payments please see your child’s class teacher.


Homework: Check your active learn account for updates. New homework will be added at the beginning of each term and it will reinforce topics covered for maths that term. There will also be comprehension and grammar activities added periodically.  We will send times tables to learn every Friday to then be tested the following Friday. We will be covering all of the tables from 2- 12.  We would love all children to complete a project to show at the end of the term. This can be anything to do with our topic; the more creative the better! Projects will be shown in December and we will share the date to bring them in closer to the time.
