Welcome to Year 5
Year 5 Key Maths Objectives and Scheme of Work
Welcome to the Spring Term. We hope that you have had a fantastic start to 2019! This term we will be studying a topic called Tropical Travel that focuses on the Amazon Rainforest and all that it has to offer. Our topic includes vibrant and colourful artwork, using the different elements of the rainforest to write a non-chronological report and describing life cycles and reproduction processes in science. We had a great start to our topic by creating a collage inspired by the work of Henri Rousseau. To find out more about what we will be learning this term please follow the link. Tropical Travel.docx
Out Of This World
Welcome to the Autumn Term. In Year 5 we will be studying a topic called ‘Out Of This World’. We will be using a range of texts including poetry, information texts and narratives to inspire our writing and topic work. In science, we will be linking our topic and writing to our scientific enquiry that includes understanding the movement of the earth and the moon and how this provides us with day and night. To find out more about our exciting topic please follow the link to our topic web.
To begin our writing this term, we looked at the features of a non-chronological report and used our writing skills to produce our own report based on the fictional planet of Pandora. As inspiration for this unit of writing we watched a short clip that provided us with ideas for our own planet. Our headings included habitat, appearance, wildlife and atmosphere. We enjoyed using our imagination to develop our writing skills and include elements such as topic sentences, technical vocabulary and a range of conjunctions in our non-chronological reports.
