During this term we will be looking at non-chronological reports and how they are structured and then applying this when writing our own. We will also be writing our own Newspaper reports about the Moon Landing and diary entries/ mission logs in role as astronauts. We will be using a range of sources to find our information from video clips, to internet pages and books.
Year_5 Y5 Autumn Term 2017 Curriculum Topics
In the Autumn term we will be focusing on our place value skills as well as our methods for the 4 operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be learning about fractions, decimals and percentages and the relationship between these. Our big focus during every maths lesson is going to be on reasoning and developing our skills in this area.
Our topic this term will link to our class 'Space' topic where we will be studying the Earth, Sun and Moon. As part of this topic we will be learning about their shapes and approximate sizes; their movement through space and how things like day/night and seasons are created.
Will there ever be another human on the Moon?
During our Wednesday PE sessions with Mrs Wright, we will be covering the REAL PE scheme and focusing on our personal and social skills through sports.
We will also be lucky to have some special visitors with us on Tuesdays who are going to teach us about different forms of exercise and also how to keep our bodies healthy in terms of our diet and nutrition.
During our PSHE lessons this term we will be focusing on relationships and how our feelings and emotions can affect our relationships with others. We will also be considering how we can recognise different feelings in others and how to respond to them appropriately.
Our RE topic this term is all about different places of worship and how people from different communities practise their religious beliefs.
Our art lessons this term will begin with a drawing/sketching focus. We will be drawing objects from observation and learning how to create different effects with a pencil. We will also be moving on to create some paintings of planets and the Solar System.
