English

 

 

In English we will be looking at composition and application of skills in order to write engaging and high level fiction, non-fiction and poetry and linking this to the World Wars, a rich Topic of study for this term.

We will be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction texts an inspiration and reference for our learning, along with a variety of other text types. We will practise our comprehension and inference skills required for this year and looking towards Year 6.

 

Maths

Our learning in Maths this term will be focused on using our skills in calculation to learn at greater depth across the strands of the Curriculum. 

Every day we will train our brains to be better at mental maths by doing lots of mental-oral work. Maths will be focused around the three skills of arithmetic fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We aim to provide children opportunities to deepen their learning as well as learn calculation skills. Pivotal to this is our times tables knowledge. Please help us to recall our times tables quickly as well as counting. We are beginning Year 5 with understanding number and place value.
