Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5! We’re really looking forward to the challenges this year will bring.

Our class teacher is Mrs Harding and our teaching assistants are Miss Maqsood and Mrs Beswick.

In writing this year we will be studying a range of different writing genres based on a variety of videos, picture books and novels. Our reading lessons will focus on using reading gems and continuing to develop our fluency. In maths we will be using Mathshed alongside other materials to develop our mathematical skills.

Our wider curriculum will be taught in blocks throughout the year, please see the curriculum overview for more information

Autumn 1

In English we have been reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo and we have been focusing on developing sentence structure and adding detail to setting and character descriptions.

Our maths lessons have focused on place value and has included: multiplying by 10,100 and 1000; ordering and comparing numbers up to 1,000,000 and rounding numbers up to 1,000,000!

We have already had lots of interesting history lessons where we have been learning about WWI which has included looking at artefacts and visiting the Imperial War Museum.  In science we are building on learning from Year 4 as we study materials and states of matter.

This year:

Swimming will take place on Friday afternoons.

Music will take place on Tuesday afternoons.

PE will take place on Tuesday afternoons.

Reading book bags will be given out and returned daily. Please take the time to read every day.
