Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

 

Autumn Term:

 

Joan of Arc

 

 

Week: 11th November 2019

 

 

Important Dates:

 

Year 5 Remembrance Service - Monday 11th November

 

Children in Need - Friday 15th November

 

 

 

Literacy:

 

The children will be working towards writing a biography on Joan of Arc. They will participate in shared writing, consider modelled writing and produce their own independent writing for some of the key events in Joan's life. We will learn about semi-colons and consolidate passive voice.

 

Maths:

 

We will be beginning the strand of multiplication and division. We will cover aspects such as prime numbers, factors and multiples, as well as ling multiplication.

 

Guided Reading:

 

We will use our Literacy text of 'Sparrow' to discuss the language, meaning and vocabulary of different passages.

 

Science:

 

We will be learning about light (how line travels in a straight line; reflection; light sources and shadows) to ultimately construct a periscope.

Eisteddfod

 

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.

The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)

Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices. 

Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.

The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!

Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you. 

Homework:

 

Spelling Homework: Week 8 - see homework book. Tested this week on Friday.

 

Maths Homework: Multiplication and Division - see homework book.

 

Guided Reading Homework: Comprehension - see homework book.

 

Please can you ensure your child is practising their times tables. We have a weekly quiz on Friday where we are going to work our way through each times table.

 

Times Tables:

 

The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:

 

2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x

 

They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.

 

If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.

 

Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
