Autumn 2

 

Learning Journey

Our Learning Journey this half term will continue to be about North America.  This will start with learning about the different states in the United States in Geography, followed by the triangular slave trade and the civil rights movement and segregation in the United States in History. This will link to black British history including how the Windrush generation helped England. 

We will also delve into the features of coasts and compare a UK coastline to that of one in Jamaica.

Division

Fractions

It is important that your child practises their multiplication tables and division facts as this will help consolidate their learning.

This half term we will be writing a non-chronological report. This will be based on the RMS Titanic that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from UK to America.  This will link in with our big question and global theme which is power and governance.

Autumn 1

Learning Journey

Our Learning Journey this half term will be about North America focusing on the theme of ‘Human Rights’.  This will start with a history focus, learning about the American Revolution, followed by indigenous tribes and the impact European immigrants had on them.  For geography, we will delve into the various biomes of North America including the tundra and grasslands and the features and animals that inhabit them.

 

Maths

During Maths lessons we will be covering:

Place value

Addition

Subtraction

Multiplication

As the children have missed chunks of their learning during the pandemic, we will be having a focus on number and arithmetic. Therefore daily practise of what we have been learning in lessons and times tables is vital.

 

English

This half term we will be writing a narrative. This will be based on ‘A Story Like the Wind’ by Gill Lewis. This will link in with our question, ‘Should we be given the freedom to move freely around the world?’ We will be looking at year 5 specific grammar expectations and spellings from the year 5 and year 6 word list. For book study, we are looking at the book ‘Resist’ which is non fiction and explores our ‘Human Rights’ global curriculum topic.
