Hello and welcome to year 5's class page! We hope that you enjoy looking at all of our work!
Teacher: Miss. Reynolds

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 upcomign 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.
Science - 'Forces' is this half term's topic. Within this topic, we will be explaining that unsupported objects fall towards the earth because of the force of gravity acting between the earth and the falling object, idenifying the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction that act between moving surfaces and planning different types of scientific enquires to anwer questions.
History and Geography - Our topic this half term is 'Brazil' where we will be: locating Brazil on a map, discussing its location and surroundings, looking at its varied countryside, making comparisons between England and Brazil and exploring Brazil's famous carnival.
Religious Education - Over Autumn 2, our topics will be 'Judaism' and 'Advent'. Within the first topic, we will learn about 'The escape from freedom' and then look at the different celebrations within the Jewish faith. Within the second topic, we will look at how Advent is a time of waiting and how to wait in hope.
