Welcome to Year 5!
I hope that you had a fantastic Summer holidays and are ready for an exciting half term!
Our Topic for Autumn 2, is Survival!
In English we will be reading Kensuke's Kingdom, written by Michael Morpurgo, which tells the story of a boy and his family who go sailing around the world. However, it goes horribly wrong! The story describes the island that Michael ends up on, but he isn't alone!
We will be using a variety of writing styles alongside this book, with our main one being to write our own adventure story!
In Maths, we will be revisiting and extending our knowledge of number, place value, addition and subtraction. We will now be working with numbers up to a million and exploring new written methods to help us solve a variety of problems.
Our Topics will be:
History - The Tudors
Geography - Mountains and Rivers
RE - Belonging in Islam
ICT - E-Safety
PSHE - Caring, Cooperation, & Helpfulness
Art - Using different mediums to create sea, cave and islands
DT - Junk modelling to build a raft
- Reading diaries will be checked daily.
- Three pieces of homework are due throughout the six weeks.
- PE will be Tuesday's and Thursday's.
- School trip to the Mary Rose Museum 12th October (I am in the process of planning some more trips)
