Y5 Abi Elphinstone Class
Our literacy work this half-term will be based around King Kong. The children will use the text to act as investigative journalists and investigate the story and character of King Kong. Job adverts for the leading lady will be written and the children will explore the conventions of dialogue punctuation and look at how the emotions of characters change through the story. Children finish by gathering relevant quotes at a press conference before writing a newspaper article about the events that have taken place.
In maths we will be focusing on decimals and percentages and properties of shape. We will continue to revisit key arithmetic skills, including multiplying by a two digit number and short division.
In RE, our big question is: Is commitment the same as sacrifice?
In humanities, our big question is: How could Hitler have convinced a nation like Germany to follow him? We will be looking at the causes of WW2 and exploring the countries involved. We will be exploring one of the most horrific crimes in history - the holocaust.
The children will be learning to play cricket in PE.
The most exciting news - WE WILL BE GOING TO BUSHCRAFT!
