Miss Mulkeen

Autumn 2

For R.E. Year 5 will be exploring proverbs. We will be discussing the value of wisdom and reading about the wisdom of Solomon. Later on in the term we will be moving onto Christmas: The Gospels of Matthew and Luke. We will be looking at these Gospels and their perspective of the nativity story as well as deepening our understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.

 

 

In English, we are looking at biographies and autobiographies of Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo.  We will be looking at dialogue, and complex sentences.  We will follow this with exploring recounts investigating UFO sightings, completing this unit with a report.  Finally moving on to looking at some Observational poetry.

In Maths, we will start with place value, decimals and subtraction. This will be followed up with a week each on measures, fractions and a combination of all of the four number operations.  We will also be looking at Roman Numerals relating to years.

Our science unit will continue with our current work on life cycles. We will now begin to compare each stage of the life cycles and finish with a final write up comparing all of the stages.

In computing, the children will design, write and debug a programme making a computer game software.  

Our topic work will move on to Geography, we will be looking at what life is like in the Amazon.  We will be researching the city of Manaus, and look at how we can help to save the Rainforest for the future.

In French, we will be looking at writing sentences using adjectives.  Then we will be looking at looking at different animals, and what would appear in different rooms of the home.

In design and technology will continue our theme on Cam toys where we have currently built up to the design stage and will start to make these over the next few weeks.

Art moves on to looking at painting and surrealism art, with a particular focus on Salvador Dali’s ‘Melting Clocks’.

May I remind you that although Year 5 are scheduled to have indoor P.E. on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and outdoor P.E. on a Friday, kit should be in school at all times in case on any last minute changes.
