Year 5M 2018 - 2019

Miss Mulkeen

Spring 2

In Maths we will be continuing to look at place value with counting in powers of 10, negative numbers and rounding numbers to 1 million.  We will then be looking at mental addition and subtraction incorporating our knowledge of place value.  Then we will be looking at line graphs including plotting co-ordinates. We will also be learning about multiplication, division and fractions.

In English this half term we will be starting off looking at poems. The children will be using the classic Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats to develop their descriptive vocabulary. The children will end this unit writing and editing their own poem. We will then move on to look at a non-fiction unit; this will include looking at argument and debate texts, discussing the differences between fact and opinion. We will hold our very own class debate and then write an argument text.

 

Our science unit will cover Earth and Space for this half term.  The topic will include proving that the Earth moves around the sun; that the moon moves around the Earth; and that the seasons, and day and night are all a consequence of these movements. We will use our science investigation skills to prove this.

 

 

For R.E. Year 5 will explore the lives of significant women in the Old Testament. The aim of this unit is to widen the children’s knowledge and understanding of the role and significance of women in the Bible. To reflect upon the actions of these women and consider what we can learn from their stories.

 

 

Our topic work will move towards Geography, by investigating the big question ‘How is our country changing?’ We will investigate different events that have affected the UK over the last century.

In Computing, Year 5 are being coders. DT will be based around our topic of bread, where we will be making our own selection to sample. Art moves on to looking at landscapes, focusing in on the work of Eileen Downes.
