Year 5 Curriculum Newsletter - Autumn 2017
Welcome to Year 5! I hope everyone has had a fantastic summer so that you are ready to come back to school and have a fantastic start to the year. I cannot wait to see everyone again and I am really looking forward to being your teacher this year.
During the Autumn term in Maths we will be working with large numbers, over one million! Wow! So I hope you have got your Maths thinking caps on because we will be working really hard on place value for the first couple of weeks.
In English, this term we will start by looking at persuasive adverts. We will be watching TV adverts as well as reading holiday brochures so that we can pick out all of the important features of a persuasive advert. The final outcome will be a fantastically produced persuasive piece of writing about a city within the UK!
Our class novel for this term is called Beowulf. It is a old legend set in Anglo Saxon times about a brave warrior who slays an ancient and evil beast. The children will be taking part in role play activities, short writing activities and lots more so that they can write their own version of an Anglo Saxon legend.
Topic work for this term is all about the United Kingdom. We will be using our imagination and the use of our fantastic immersion room to go on a journey around the UK. They children will 'visit' famous landmarks and explore what it is like to live in different places around the UK.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my newsletter for Autumn term. Homework will be given out on a Friday and expected to be handed back in and completed to a high standard by Wednesday. We will be using Dojo points as class rewards as well as whole class fuzzies! When children follow the school values they will be rewarded but equally, if children do not follow the school values Dojo points and golden time will be taken away. P.E is on a Thursday so the children will need to have full P.E kits in school. If you have any questions or you would like to see me at any time please do not hesitate to catch me on the yard before and after school, or you can make an appointment at the office. I am happy to help with anytime. I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your children this year.
