Half Term Overview for Class 5L
Overview of Learning Adventures
This half term in Year 5 we will be looking at:
Stories with historical settings
Film and play scripts
Classic narrative poetry
Throughout our topics the children will be taught grammar lessons to support them with their genre. These will include:
Verbs (possessive and modal), nouns and expanded noun phrases, adjectives and relative clauses.
There will also be a focus on children using the correct forms of punctuation such as commas, brackets, colons and semi-colons.
Developing a cursive handwriting style is essential within the year 5 curriculum. There will be regular weekly practice of this throughout the term.
Children will also receive weekly spelling tests. These take place on a Tuesday morning and new spellings sent home on a Tuesday evening.
Having focused on place value and addition and subtraction last half term, this half term we will be moving on to look at:

This will include:
Multiplying and dividing numbers using known facts.
Multiply and divide whole numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.
Multiply 4 digit numbers by 1 or two digit numbers using the formal written method.
Divide up to 4 digit numbers using 1 digit numbers using formal written method.

This half term we will be continuing to look at materials and their properties, focusing on:
Changes reversible and irreversible
R.E. (Come and See)
Belonging: Or lives are marked by many different experiences of being welcomed into new situations and groups. Through this topic we recognise the importance of being welcomed, of feeling comfortable with new situations and belonging to new groups. We will explore what groups we belong to and how this shapes us, including families, the community and various social groupings.
This term our learning adventure is Food, Glorious Food! Through this topic children will learn that food comes from various and diverse places. They will also discover that:
Some food is produced locally but much of our food is grown (or reared) in other countries and has to be transported over many miles to reach us.
Children will learn that different foods require different climates and soils, and that humans are needed to grow, harvest and transport food from its source to our tables.
They will also learn that whilst many people in the world produce their own food, some rely on others to farm and transport the food for their consumption.
Children will also learn that not everybody in the world has enough food to eat (and why) yet others have more than enough and may even waste the food they have.
This half term we will be focusing on learning key greetings, the days and months of the year, saying the date and counting up to thirty.
Next term we will be listening to high quality recorded music and how musical elements can be used to create effects, i.e. film music.
P.E. (Physical Education)
This term children pupils will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills and use them in a range of activities. These will include modified team games, dance and gymnastics.
As part of our learning adventure topic, ‘Food, Glorious Food!’
Children will look at food from another culture and learn a variety of cooking techniques (hopefully they will be able to share these once at home and dazzle you).
In the Spring term children will be focusing on drawing and painting and developing the techniques used to create abstract textured paintings during our Earthlings topic.
