Termly Theme / Topic

Year 5

Our topic for the Autumn Term is ‘Sing 2’ - ‘Express Yourself’ with a focus on Expressive Arts. We are focusing on fostering building positive relationships with peers and staff. We have arranged musical workshops this half term and plan on taking the children to see a pantomime.

In literacy we are doing recount writing. We are looking at fictional books and stories Children will be innovating the story and writing their own version of it. For non-fiction we will look at instructional writing and creating persuasive posters to advertise our ‘Goetre’s Got Talent’ show.

In Numeracy this term, we will be looking at place value, before moving onto the 4 operations of number. Each week we will be using “Big Maths” in order to further our skills and improve our maths confidence. Times tables are a big focus for us, so we will be adding links to multiplication games and learning resources onto Google classroom that the children can access at home. (All children have the class code to access the classroom)

Our PE day is a Thursday, therefore please ensure that children wear suitable clothing and footwear to participate in the activities.

Children in year 5 have been completing cycling tasks as part of our wellbeing activities.

All children will also be given a reading book, please ensure these are returned to school on a DAILY basis, so that we can read with children as often as possible throughout the week.
