Our Autumn Term Journey
So far this term in Topic and Science we have explored planets, the moon phases and looking at the history of space travel, as well as scientific understanding. Furthermore, the children have had a fantastic time planning, building and painting their very own solar systems. Through this we have linked our English to A Wrinkle In Time. The children have immersed themselves in the novel and have focused on: character traits, summarising the plot and predicting what will happen next. We will continue with the novel and will begin to piece together our own versions of the beating the monster genre.
In Maths the children have embedded their previous knowledge of place value and built on these core foundations through a mastery approach. We will continue to develop our understanding of place value through the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
RE has centred around the key question of What is God Like? The children have spent time looking at what God means to them and what important features God may hold for them. This coming half term the children will discuss what role God has for Muslims and we are fortunate enough to have a trip planned to a local mosque to further our understanding.
Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed our weekly PE, Swimming, French, ICT and Music sessions which allows the children to develop other essential skills.
