Year 5 Snowdrop - 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.
In Year 5 this term we are studying the use of persuasive language. With this, the children are expected to include a range of skills such as: modal verbs, persuasive verbs, rhetorical questions, relative clauses etc. The children also focus on the use of tension and atmosphere in their writing. They will be studying a range of texts and will be expected to infer deeply from these by asking questions about the plot and motives of the characters. Techniques to create tension and atmosphere can include the use of varied sentence lengths, cohesion, rhetorical questions, ellipsis etc.
