Year Five

This term the children will continue to explore the theme of human rights, looking at the impacts of crime on human rights and the justice system; they will study the difference between the modern British justice system and that of the Victorians and how it has evolved. Children will have an awareness of how vulnerable children can get involved within gangs and understand how the justice system acts upon this.

In English this half term, we will be continuing our core text ‘Too Much Trouble’ by Tom Avery. Over the course of the half term, we will be consolidating our narrative writing skills in order to write flashback narratives. In particular, we will be learning how to shift between tenses and balance our narratives with dialogue.

In DT week, we will be using our oracy skills to discuss the importance of nutrition; compare foods from around the world; look at France and its culture; make a baguette; evaluate our findings and write a set of instructions.

In maths, we will recap our learning around measurements – including perimeter and area - and converting. We will be looking at angles and how to measure them using a protractor. To conclude the maths learning journey this term we will be looking at shape, position and direction.

In science, we will be continuing our learning about different materials. The children will be planning and carrying out investigations to separate materials in to solid, liquid and gases. We will be exploring the solubility of these materials.

In RE, we will be exploring weddings across a range of faiths and how they are different and similar.

PE is on Thursday and we will be continuing to go swimming on Friday mornings.

In Art, we will be using the style of Colin Ruffell to practice our observational drawings of the London skyline using acrylic and ink.

In curriculum, we will continue to look at the Victorian era as well as conduct a mock trial for Mr. Green.
