Oak Class - Year 5 & Year 6 2023 - 2024
This autumn, Oak Class will embark on another exciting term of learning. In English we be exploring some facinating texts through which we be developing our unique writing skills. These texts are always ‘top secret’ as the mystery surrounding them can help to stimulate the children’s ideas. Using these texts as stimulus, the children will produce two final pieces of writing in the style of a dilemma narrative and a balanced arguement.
In maths we will continue using Power Maths, which is a mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics designed to strengthen and deepen understanding. The children will begin by looking at place value before moving onto enhancing their understanding of the four operations and geometry.
In Science, we will begin the term by looking at reproduction and how this differs between plants and animals. Our religious education work will revolve around the study of creation and science. In Art this term, we will be exploring elements of design and how we design with a purpose in mind. In design and technology, we will delve into the world of structures and more specifically how bridges are designed and constructed. Our computing topic focuses on databses and graphs and how these are used in the real world. In History, we will be exploring the Industrial Revelotion and its impact on mondern day life. Our geography topic centres on the slums of South America whilst in french we will be learning how to describe our portraits. Finally, in PSHE, the children will be focusing on the themes of families and relationships.
