Text: Anne Franks diary
This week children will demonstrate their skills when infering information from a text. We will focus on the above story as it links nicely to our topic, Time traveller
Homework books need to be handed in every Wednesday and will be returned to children on Thursday.
Children will have a homework bingo for the half term, weekly spellings with an activity in their boomerang books and an X Factor example to practice at home.
We have now set an activity on MyMaths
English: This half term, the children will learn all about biographies. They will begin to identify the key features of a biography and the similarities and differences between autobiographies and biographies. We will look into many different biographies, as well as looking back in time to Anne Frank's diary with links to our guided reading and our topic overview.
Maths: In Maths, year Five will develop their skills and understanding about subtraction with large numbers, using the column method to exchange the numbers bridging ten. We will then delve into multiplication and division and developing the children's skills in this area.
Connected Curriculum: Children will become experts in time travelling around the world to different periods in past times. This also gives them a chance to delve into the future and begin to think about how they would see a futuristic world. They will also have an opportunity to look back in time with a special visitor talking about similarities and differences between the past and modern day. The children will produce drama pieces throughout this topic as well as learning new scientific and geographical skills.
Whilst looking into Anne Frank's diary, we are going to be briefly discussing many areas within World War 2. This includes things such as Hitler, changes now and then, concentration camps and rations during the war. This may be a sensitive topic that children may wish to discuss at home. If there are any concerns don't hesitate to ask the class teacher.
