Year 5

Swallows and Amazons & The BFGs

Curriculum for Autumn Term 1

This half term our topic is ‘Mr Toad’

Our half term focus is English and Science based. 

Topic vocabulary to understand and use: lifecycle, kenning, transform, processes, inference, retrieve, amphibian, mammal, respiration, nutrition, excretion

As Readers we will be reading a mixture of fiction and non-fiction texts relating to animals and lifecycles. Linking in with this topic, we will be reading extracts from The Wind in the Willows. 

As Writers we will be writing a selection of pieces linked to our book, including a character description, as well as writing up our science investigations on lifecycles. Also, we will have a poetry focus on Kennings.  

As Mathematicians we will be focusing on place value and the four operations in a variety of contexts, including problem solving.

As Scientists we will be exploring and comparing the lifecycles of toads, butterflies, birds and dolphins. We will develop our knowledge of the life processes using “MRS GREN”.  

As Explorers we will be using our computer and internet skills to research the different animals’ classes (e.g. amphibians, mammals) and distinguish between their life processes.

As Artists we will be creating then editing and improving our sketches- a life drawing of a butterfly.

PE lessons take place on Monday and Wednesday for BFGs and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for Swallows and Amazons.

Home Learning

Homework will be handed out on Friday and will be due back in the following Friday. It will consist of a mixture of tasks including spellings, reading and other activities related to the subjects and topic being covered this term.
