Autumn Term 2018
Year 5 marks the move for children from lower to upper Key Stage 2. The essence of this year is to provide the children with many opportunities to gain in independence and to seek out and accept greater responsibility. Our Year 5 children become hot dinner monitors and can learn to be 'good buddies' for our younger children. They will participate in peer mediation and will learn valuable 'life skills'. During the summer term of this academic year we will teach Sex Education for the first time. We continue to build upon the curriculum from Year 4 and to prepare the children for their final year at Bishop's Cleeve Primary School.
This term the children will learn about the creation of the Solar System as well as studying how the position of the Earth in the Solar System creates the phases of the moon. We shall also delve into early space exploration, learning about the Space Race through creating a timeline and propaganda style posters. Later in the term, we shall visit the Leicester Space Centre to gain an insight into space exploration through interactive workshops and the prestigious planetarium. We will look into different forces, with a particular focus on gravity. Towards the end of the term, we shall make our own rockets from water bottles before launching them on the school field.
In English, many writing opportunities will be created as the children delve into Herge's TinTin: Destination Moon. We will use this knowledge to write a 'Defeating a Monster' story and a non-chronological report on a fictitious creature of their choice. Furthermore, we will learn about Winter Haikus in poetry and also cover numerous texts during reciprocal reading, as well as poetry and playscripts.
The children will also be enjoying gymnastics, circuits (from an external coach) and a variety of invasion games (hockey and netball).
During the Autumn term we will be studying many different aspects of maths. These will include arithmetic, place value, rapid recall recall of addition and subtraction, fractions, rapid recall of multiplication and division and formal written methods of all four functions.
Spring Term 2019
Welcome to the Spring Term in Y5! This term we are taking the children on a journey around the BIG IDEA of 'The Power of Independence'. Using the theme of 'Terrible Tudors', the children will explore Tudor life as a background to their work on William Shakespeare's famous 'Scottish Play'. At the start of the Summer term we will travel to Stratford upon Avon to participate in a real-life Tudor experience at Mary Arden's Farm. We will be reading Shakespeare's poem 'Under the Greenwood Tree' and we shall spend time acting different scenes of the Scottish play.
Our theme work this term will include discussions about Brexit, creating a Tudor fact file about Henry VIII, exploring the Tudor class sytem and comparing it with ours today, understanding the power of the media and studying materials and their properties through practical investigations.
PE will include learning a traditional Tudor dance and Computing will also see us doing research about the Tudors and Brexit and learning some coding. As part of our discussions about Brexit, the children will also be learning some basic French.
As part of PSHE the children will complete units on 'Keeping Safe', highlighting how to be safe at home and particularly on the internet. They will learn about the features of reliable and unreliable websites and discuss the importance of privacy settings and how to be cybersafe.
