Here is a quick insight into the type of things that we will be learning about during Autumn 1:
Literacy - This half term, we are basing all of our Literacy work around 'Mary Poppins' by P.L. Travers. During thishalf term, we will be learning how to use modal verbs accurately and start to look at how to use realative clauses within a sentence. We will be focusing on: instructional writing, descriptive writing and formal letter writing over the upcoming weeks.
Reading - Within guided reading, we will be reading 'Fire, Phantoms and Footie' which is a guided reading book which is appropriately pitched for year 5 readers. Within our guided reading sessions, we will be looking at the meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary, retrieving facts from the text and beginning to infer character's feelings.
Numeracy - At the start of Autumn 2, we will be focusing on 'Number' which will include looking at: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Then, we will move on to 'statisticsw' where we will: solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presentend in a line graph and also complete, read and interpret information in tables including timetables.
Music - During Spring 1 and 2, we are learning how to play a range of brass instruments with Mr Murtugh from Rochdale Music Service. Check our 'music' page to see how we are getting on!
History and Geography - Our topic this half term is 'The Suffragettes' and we are looking at the questions 'Can one person change the world?'.' Within this topic we will be: looking at key vocabulary linked to the suffragette movement; using green screen technology to recreate a suffragette protest; creating a timeline and plotting key events; identifying key locations within the movement,;exploring the reasons why women wanted the right to vote and learning about many famous women who have changed the world.
Religious Education - Over Spring 1, our topics are 'Memorial sacrifice' and 'Mission'. To start off with, we will look at how The Good News for the poor and how Jesus began his mission. After that, we will look at our diocese and also the meaning of 'May they all be one'.Towards the end of the half term, we will look at The Last Supper and how the Eucharist became a memorial.
