Year 5

Writing

We are starting this half term by writing a non-chronological report all about our Space topic. The children will be doing their own research and presenting their findings using a range of different presentational devices. Additionally, we will be looking at balanced arguments and creating our own using a formal tone.

Reading

We have read the book ‘There’s a boy in the girls bathroom’ and will be answering different comprehension questions based on the text. Additionally, the class will be exploring synonyms, antonyms and how to use a dictionary and thesaurus.

Maths

In Maths we are working on securing the methods for addition and subtraction as well as exploring problem solving and reasoning questions. Alongside this, we are developing our understanding of statistics and will start on multiplication and division.
