Term 5

Social Enterprise


This term our learning behaviour is collaboration.


This term in English we will be working on writing villainous speeches! The children will first deconstruct several examples of speeches and then evaluate their effectiveness and how they effect the audience. We will then go on to construct our own speeches, based on Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’. The children will then get the opportunity to create and document performances of their masterpieces! We will also be exploring biography writing, thinking about the different features and what makes a successful biography. Throughout this term, we will be focussing on broadening the type of vocabulary we use and developing our use of grammar and punctuation as we work.

In Maths Year 5s will be exploring translation and reflection with shapes. We will then go on to look at interpreting data and graphs to solve problems. Following this, the children will be investigating the topic of measurement where we will be working on converting between different units of metric measurement, calculating perimeter and area, and applying this knowledge to solve problems.

Year 6 will continue to work hard revising on tricky topics in preparation for SATs, working on solving problems and developing our reasoning skills.



We will be investigating Classification of animals this term in Science. We will learn about where the classification system comes from and work on identifying similarities and differences between living things in order to determine their classification. We will also look at creating our own classification system and attempt to classify unusual living things from around the world!
