Year 5 and 6 Autumn term 2022 Our topic for this term will be ‘Celebrations’. The learners’ voice and ideas are at the heart of the learning. We encourage you to discuss the class activities with your child and to bring in any relevant pictures, books, artefacts and ideas for guest speakers. Here is an outline of what we will study in each subject: Languages, Literacy and Communication: We study Welsh and English in alternating blocks of a fortnight each. Our literacy work will go hand in hand with our topic work as well as our class novel ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Q. Rauf. The writing genres for this term are: Recount, letter, invite, poster, speech, instructions and rules. Read Write Inc: The children will have Read Write Inc sessions for twenty minutes daily to learn English spelling skills. I will be listening to the children read, so it is important that they bring their reading bags to school every day. Reading records will be sent home, therefore when you read with your child, could you please note down in the reading record. You are welcome to read other books, magazines, newspaper with them. Mathematics and Numeracy: The main aspects that we will study this term will be: Addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, place value, temperature, data/distribution, money, mass, estimation and checking and arithmetical reasoning. In addition to this we will practice mental maths, complete Mathematic mats and develop our ability to reason. Science and Technology: We will study the importance of recycling and the effect we and other people can have on the environment and on living things. Another unit of work we will be looking at is life cycles classification. We will also be developing our coding skills using Hwb and Scratch coding programs. Humanities: This term we will be celebrating people who have influenced and shaped Wales. We will learn about our local area, celebrate the history of Wales and develop their sense of belonging, as embodied in the Welsh word cynefin. We will also focus on the celebrations of the wider world, and compare the events to ours in Wales. Expressive Arts: We will be emulating the work of the artist Andy Warhol. We will take part in a dance workshop to celebrate Diwali. We will also be practicing and learning songs towards our thanksgiving service and our Christmas Show. Health and Wellbeing: Every Monday we do physical activity/sports. We will also be looking at our mental health and emotional well-being. We will be celebrating our character, our personality and try to understand that the way we relate to social influences shapes who we are.
