Curriculum theme day
This half term Year 5 will be taking part in a “What’s in the world?” theme day within the week beginning 5th October 2020. This theme day is designed to teach the children knowledge objectives that were missed due to school closure last academic year. Within this theme day the children will learn the name of a number of European capitals and also be able to locate and number the names of South and North American country. Letters will be sent out nearer the time with any further information on you may need to know.
Year 5 are becoming Game Developers this half term. They will be using an ICT program named ‘Scratch’ to design and create a game. They will then learn how to use software on Purple Mash to design their own game. This year lessons will be taught in our brand new Computing Suite in school which is a new, exciting addition to the facilities Snapethorpe has.
Our theme is continuing as ‘health and well-being’ this half term. All children will be focusing on keeping safe; specifically why health and safety rules are in place in school and what to do in an emergency in the local environment.
Children are beginning their ‘Animals Including Humans’ topic this half term. They will be learning about the simple functions of the digestive system in humans and will be able to identify different types of teeth and their functions. Children will also look at the variety of food chains that exist within the world, identifying producers and predators.
Year 5 - Creative Curriculum - Autumn 1 2019-2020
We are going to go Ape on Wednesday the 2nd October and we are so excited!!!!!
Our topic this half term has a DT focus and is all about pulleys and how things work. We have found out what a pulley is and over the next few weeks, will be designing and making our own pulley system. We are also learning all about forces in our science topic, so hopefully at the end of this half term we will be full of knowledge!
