Topic Work Autumn 2
This term we will be looking into Space and investigating our solar system . We visited the Sherwood Observatory and found out some amazing facts!
Will we ever put another person on the moon?
Literacy - as a class we will be reading 'The Disappearing Moon' by Simon Bartram and using this to help us find the features of newspapers and write newspaper reports , including using direct and reported speech.
In S.P.A.G we will be looking at a new way to improve our spelling in our writing and create even more ambitious vocabulary to use.
Remember ,we still need to use everything else we have learnt so we can reach the top of the S.P.A.G ladder.
Spelling is very important this year and , like times tables ,we will be doing them everyday. Try to learn them to stand a chance of challenging a teacher to a spell-off. The 5/6 spelling list can be found at the foot of this webpage.
Rush To Read
Wow! What terrific readers we all are in Year 5! We rushed to read our books this week, together with the rest of Key Stage 2.
In numeracy this half term we will be consolidating our work on;
Place value (including decimals)
Dividing and Multipying by 10 , 100 and 1000
Word problems (reasoning)
Time (digital and analogue
Measurement (calculating perimeter and area)
We will also continue with our daily times table challenge. We nearly have everyone having defeated Batman, we need to keep battling. Remember , if you succeed all week you may get to challenge a teacher in a times table competition. I am yet to win.
Keep working on strategies to help you improve.
Practice your times tables in readiness for our weekly challenges.
