Year 5/6 Oaks

2020/21 Oaks Term 6

 

Welcome back to Term 6!

Our topic this half term is - Be a Young Entrepreneur! During this topic the children will be creating a theme park. They will have a set budget and will have to build a theme park within the allocated amount. Throughout the topic the children will have to manage their theme park; dealing with running costs, staffing and maintenance costs, making sure they make a profit and not a loss and advertising.

 

 

 

 

 

In English, we will begin by using a book called ‘Leon and the Place Between’. This is a magical book and it is based on a trip to the circus. Leon, who is the main character in the book, is transported to a mysterious, exotic world where he encounters many magical moments. The children will be creating a narrative based on the structure of the book.

 

 

 

 

 

Next the children will be creating a leaflet to advertise their theme park. They will be looking at figurative language and how to use it and then using the skills they have learnt to create their leaflet.

 

Throughout Maths the main themes are:  Geometry – Position and direction, algebra and volume. There will also be maths running throughout the topic. Please continue to use TT Rock stars this really helps with times tables.

 

 In RE we will be asking the question: If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?

 

 In Science the theme will be Healthy Bodies. These lessons will include: healthy diet, food groups, circulatory system, exercise and the effects of drugs on the body.

In Computing the topic is spreadsheets. This links nicely into the theme park topic.

 

Art/DT lessons will be based around fairgrounds and theme parks The children will create fairground pictures using the stippling technique, looking at artists who create the art work tor rides at a fairground and making their own fairground ride.

 

PSHE lessons will cover the theme – Changing Me.

 

In Music the children will be learning how to read musical notation. This will be progression from the clarinet lesson they have carried out this year.

 

PE will be on a Thursday and children must come to school in their PE kit.

 

The children will bring a list of spellings to learn every Monday and they will be tested the following Monday. We are still using spelling shed which is updated every Monday.

 

Homework is handed out on a Monday and is due back the following Monday. They will have Maths homework related to the maths in class. The English homework will be a comprehension activity related to the learning in class.

 

 If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate in asking myself or Mrs Taylor.

2020/21 Oaks Term 5

Welcome back to Term 5!

Our topic this half term is Earth in Space. I’m very excited about this topic as I’m sure the children will be too. These lessons will include the statutory Science curriculum plus History of Space exploration. We will also be covering Locational Geography where we will carry out activities such as Longitude, Latitude, Northern and Southern Hemisphere and a variety of other tasks.

In English our theme will be around Earth in Space. We will be covering the genre of persuasive writing to begin with. We will be looking at the Golden Record Voyager which was launched in 1977. The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form who may find them. The records are a sort of time capsule. The children will look at all the features needed for persuasive writing, create their own images of how they think Earth should be represented and then try and persuade the powers that be that their ideas are the best.

 

Next, we will cover the genre of explanation texts. We will be creating a machine that will make a meal for Tim Peake (astronaut) in space. We will look at the features, create a machine and explain how it works. We will even be tasting some space food during the term!

Throughout Maths we will be covering Geometry – properties of shapes. This will involve a lot of activities relating to angles. We will then move onto statistics. Please continue to use TT Rockstars as this really helps with times tables.

 

 In RE we will be asking the question: If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?

 

 In Science we are looking at Earth in Space. These lessons will include: movements of the sun, earth and moon, day and night, seasons and lots of other interesting information.

 

In Computing we will be looking at communication. We will investigate different search engines, how search engines work and how to refine a search so you get the information required.

 

Art/Dt lessons will be around the space theme. We will have a go at origami and create our own fictional planet.

 

PSHE lessons will cover the theme – Relationships.

 

The year 5 children are continuing with Clarinet lessons throughout the term.

 

PE will be on a Thursday and children must come to school in their PE kit.

 

The children will bring a list of spellings to learn every Monday and they will be tested the following Monday. We are still using spelling shed which is updated every Monday.

 

Homework is handed out on a Monday and is due back the following Monday. They will have Maths homework related to the maths in class. The English homework will be a comprehension activity related to the learning in class.

 

 If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate in asking myself or Mrs Taylor.
