In Maths this week, we will begin looking at columnar addition and subtraction using resources. We will explore the importance of aligning the digits correctly based on their value as well as accurate addition and subtraction. In English, we will begin a film narrative based on The Piano. This will develop our children’s inference skills and understanding of how to compose a piece of writing to show a reader what is happening – not just describe events.
In our second autumn term, Year 5’s topic is Extreme Earth. In Geography, we will be looking at the creation and structures of volcanoes, their impacts on human life (Why people choose to live near to them, what value they have had in history, how scientists make predictions about when they erupt and what happened at Pompeii). In English, we will be looking at short narrative, letter writing and play scripts; each with a different theme. In Maths, we will be looking at continuing with mental methods for addition and subtraction and moving into mental multiplication and division. We will be looking to have a go at some assessment papers closer to Christmas, so that we can see where our classes are and what further support we can give them with their learning. After spending the first half term revising Year 4 spelling objectives, we will begin to look at the Year 5 spellings through our Read, Write, Inc. books. In Science, we will explore reactions, including reversible and irreversible reactions.
