Year 5
 
Power of Reading Topic:
 This half term in Year 5 we are very excited that our ‘Power of Reading’ text is Macbeth. We are very lucky to be working with John McCraw who is a professional actor. John has been working with the school for many years developing Shakespeare performances with the children. We are looking forward to seeing some fabulous acting from our Year 5 children. Alongside the Macbeth text, we are learning all about the Tudors. We will be finding out about some terrible Tudor laws, re-enacting the Battle of Bosworth, creating our own Tudor Roses and much more. As part of our Geography learning, we will be using various sources to create our own accurate maps of Tudor Britain. At the end of this half term, we will be holding our own portrait gallery and are going to using acrylic paint to create this.

Writing:
This half term our writing genres are descriptive narrative, diary entries and playscripts. We are going to be collecting lots of descriptive language about the witches to create a really exciting piece of writing. After this, we will be using our knowledge from our acting sessions to write to interesting diaries from the perspective of Lady Macbeth. Later in the half term, the children will have the opportunity to write their own playscripts influenced by the William Shakespeare play. Don’t forget to ask your child what their writing target is!

Numeracy:
In Numeracy, the children begin their academic year by revising place value. In Year 5, children should be able to read, write and order numbers  up to 1 million. They will also practice rounding numbers to the nearest hundred, thousand and ten thousand. After place value, pupils will be practicing Roman Numerals. This is a great website to practice on http://www.abcya.com/roman_numerals.htm ! In the final weeks, we will be mastering our addition method. Please see our calculation policy to find out what method your child will use in Year 5.
