Year 5 Planning

Year 5 Planning – 1st June

This week in year 5, we will be focusing on arithmetic skills, including multiplication and adding / subtracting decimals mentally, which will be followed by a weekly arithmetic test. Also, we would like the children to keep practising their 3, 4, 6, 8 times tables and notice the relationship between the 3’s and 6’s; the 4’s and 8’s. In English this week, the children will be learning the spelling patterns of -ant and -ance; learning about using apostrophes for possession; a comprehension about Captain Tom and finally, evaluating a narrative poem called the Highwayman. Our class novel is War Horse, which children will be able to view the reading sessions on our Crossacres YouTube channel. In other subjects, Children will be learning about the life cycles of plants; comparing and evaluating artwork from Gormley and Stewart;  researching geographical features of France and reflecting on their feelings about eventually returning to school  in PHSE.
