Year 5 - Swallow And Amazon & The BFG

Swallows and Amazons & The BFGs

This half term we will be focusing on Shakespeare’s epic tragedy of ‘Macbeth’ retold by Tony Bradman: 

‘A battle on a barren moor, three witches and a blood-soaked room. A murdered king, a butchered friend, a ghastly ghost and lots of gore. Trees that walk, a fierce revenge, a severed head – this is the story of Macbeth.’ 

AS READERS 

We will be improving our skills as readers by improving our comprehension skills through our use of prediction, retrieval and inference skills using a range of resources and materials. 

Vocabulary focus: predict, retrieve, summarise, infer. 

AS WRITERS 

Learning Shakespearian vocabulary within ‘Macbeth’, we will incorporate it within written dialogue between the main characters and replicate the structure and rhyme scheme of rhyming couplets. Our trip to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London will be recounted, providing personal experiences from the day. Then, using our learning from history and geography lessons about London and The Globe Theatre, and comparing past to present, we will write an information text. 

Grammar vocabulary focus: dialogue, inverted commas, parenthesis, dashes, commas, fronted adverbials, subordinate clauses, conjunctions and adverbs, expanded noun phrases, expanded verb phrases, figurative language. 

AS MATHEMATICIANS 

We will be learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals by 10, 100 & 1000 as well as expanding our knowledge of angle to include: identifying, comparing, measuring, drawing and calculating angles and using a protractor accurately. 

Vocabulary focus: multiply, divide, product, quotient, divisor, dividend, fraction, decimal, place value, angle, acute, obtuse, reflex, straight line angle, right angle, revolution, protractor, degrees, measuring, problem solving and reasoning. 

AS SCIENTISTS 

Children will study space and our solar system: understanding the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies. We will learn about the movement of the Earth and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system, discussing the theories of heliocentric and geocentric models. We will use our knowledge of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night. 

PE 

Lessons will take place once a week on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit with them on these days and clothing is suitable for colder weather. (Please label all of your child’s clothing to help avoid lost items). 

IN PSHE 

We will be discussing and investigating the relationships children have with themselves and with the communities they are a part of online. We will be discussing what it means to be part of an online community, how to be safe online, how to understand relationships with technology and monitor our time online safely. 

HOME LEARNING 

On Fridays, pupils will be receive focused and targeted homework for spellings, reading, maths, English or other activities related to subjects covered this term. Homework will be handed out on Friday and will be due back in the following Wednesday.
