Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Week Ending 20th October

We made it.

Term one has come to an end and the children have all worked extremely hard.

Thank you to those of you that made it to our Open Afternoon.

I hope that you were able to see the exciting things that your children have been learning this term and the standard of work that we expect.

Next term we will continue to swim on a Friday so could you ensure your child has their costume and a towel as well as a full PE Kit including a change of shoes for Outdoor PE on Thursdays.

Thank you and enjoy the break.

Week Ending 22nd September

Where did that week go?

The children have been getting to grips with rounding numbers to the nearest hundred and thousand, in numeracy.

This proved to be a struggle at first, but at the end of the week they are now rounding seven digit numbers, including decimals.

Well done to them all.

Our literacy journey has now taken us to Africa, with a story called ‘The village that vanished’.

We have been building up a bank of descriptive phrases by studying images, sharing ideas and using a thesaurus to extend our vocabulary knowledge.

Spelling and times table tests have taken place this week and it has become evident that not all children have been practising these at home.

Please ensure your child does this on a regular basis as well as reading their AR book daily.


Week Ending 8th September

Welcome back.

The children have returned to us with enthusiasm and excitement for the term ahead.

We hope that they have enjoyed their first week and are looking forward to the rest of the year.

Most children have adapted well to the challenges that a new year group presents and we hope this continues.

Next Friday will be our first swimming session so could we remind you to send in your permission slips and also to ensure your child has all the necessary attire and a towel in school on that day.

Thank You.
