Year 5 and 6
Year 5/6 Autumn 2019
Year 5/6 have had an excellent start to the new term, where we will be focussing on the (Vile?) Victorians and all the technological marvels they created. In English, we have been reading, discussing and creating our own suspense stories that unnerve the reader and build tension. While in maths, both Year 5 and 6 have been focussing on number and place value - practising our ordering, comparing and rounding skills. During our topic sessions, we have introduced the Victorian era and generated lots of questions that we want to answer over the next term; we have debated what exactly the key dates of Queen Victoria’s reign were, as well as exploring the British Empire and its forces. PSHE has found us revisiting the Growth Mindest - exploring the power of making mistakes and perseverance. In Science, we’ve used some famous Victorian thinkers as a starting point to explore adaption, inheritance and the theory of evolution. Finally, in Computing we’re exploring visual coding using blocks to create games and sequences. Enjoy this look at some of the fabulous work we have been creating so far this year!
