Year 5 Snowdrop - Mrs Thompson & Mrs Loft
All areas of the maths curriculum (number, measurement, geometry and statistics) will be covered over the course of the term. We will continue to embed the learning from year four, particularly the key objective of knowing all times tables up to 12x12. Understanding numbers and place value with numbers up to 1 000 000 is also a key objective for the coming term.
To begin the term, the children will be researching and rewriting myths and then they will develop their own. The children will also compose a biographical account based on research and later move on to writing an explanation text. Poetry will also be covered when the children write cinquains. Our main grammar and punctuation focuses for the term will be for the children to begin to use expanded noun phrases, relative clauses and a wider range of punctuation across the different genres.
