Autumn 1 in year 5


During Autumn 1 our class read was Who let the God's out by Maz Evans, this tied in with our history topic looking at Ancient Greece. Using our class read we worked on two different literary genres newspapers and narratives some examples which you can see here.


As Mathematics in Autumn 1 we focused on place value and addition and subtraction. We look at a variety of different topics during our work on place value such as representation of number, rounding, roman numerals and using place value columns to add multiples of 10. In addition and subtraction we focused on both mental and written strategies to help the answer questions and solve reasoning problems.


Our topic in science during Autumn 1 was to look at properties of different materials, we conducted numerous investigations where the children were able to engage their scientific curiosity by asking questions and working to find the answer.


As historians in Autumn 1 we travelled back to Ancient Greece. We explored numerous areas of the Ancient Greeks, looking at two city states, the Olympic games, Philosophers, democracy and education.


In Autumn 1 we thought about ourselves and the part we play as God's family. We explored how God created us to be special and unique and how we all have valuable gifts and talents we can share with others. We also spent a week learning about Judaism and focused on the story of Passover and how Jewish people still celebrate it today.
