Autumn 2 Term Learning - 2018

In Literacy Year 5 have been learning about the First World War as part of the 100th anniversary. We discovered what life was like on the front lines and wrote letters home about a soldier’s life in the trenches. However we didn’t stop there, we also looked at the role women had to play in helping the war effort and created non-chronological reports to explain their contribution and how it helped them get the vote. Linked to our WW1 learning, we also created silhouette artwork of soldiers on the front line.

We have been continuing to develop our multiplication and division skills and have been working hard on new methods to help us to solve problems in our maths learning.

We have really enjoyed our R.E learning where we have been looking at Mathew’s gospel. We have investigated Jesus’s family tree and why it is so important as well as learning about the O Antiphons prayers and the part they play in the lead up to Christmas.

Autumn 1 Term Learning - 2018

In year five we have been taking part in the mini police project. We have found out how they do their jobs and what qualities you need in order to be a good police officer.

 In literacy we have started to look at the myth of Prometheus and Pandora- to link with our history topic of ancient Greece. To help us remember the story we came up with actions to go with the words.

During our maths lessons we have been focusing on place value, factors, multiples and prime numbers.
