Year 5

Firstly, we would like to thank all of the parents who entrusted us with their children during our residential trip to Carlton. All the children had a fantastic experience and they truly challenged themselves! Please take time to look through our Carlton photo gallery – click here!

This half-term our topic is Pharaohs!

Let’s travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings.
Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture.

 

Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt – who knows what treasures you will find?

 

Maths

In Maths this half term we will be covering the following topics:

Week 1   – Roman numerals, negative numbers

Week 2   – Column addition/subtraction, mental addition/subtraction, problem solving

Week 3  – Short/long multiplication, short division, problem solving

Week 4  – Fractions

Week 5 –   Angles

Ocean Maths

In September, the children were given a pack of Maths resources to keep at home so they would be able to complete a variety of Maths activities with their families. These activities will be sent home on a weekly basis, so please try and make the time to play these games with your children as it will help to support and consolidate their learning!

Literacy

In Literacy this half-term we will be basing our work around a poetry anthology ‘Cosmic Disco’. The children will be reading, analysing, writing and performing poetry over the course of this half term!

Each week your child will have a set of spellings to learn. Please ensure you child learns these spellings as they are the statutory words from the national curriculum. The spellings can be found below.

Please ensure your child is reading every night at home for at least 20 minutes. They should always have two books that they have chosen to bring home from school, however they can also read; menus, magazines, brochures – anything – as long as they are reading!

P.E

The children have P.E. twice a week, so please ensure they have their full P.E. kit – black leggings or shorts, black plimsols or sensible training shoes and a top in the colour of their house team in school all week. Every child in the school will receive a house bag to keep their kit in and leave at school. can we please ask that all children bring in their kit on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday. This will avoid children borrowing the school kit and also the office having to call home to ask for kits to be brought in. A full P.E kit list can be found on the school website.

Homework

In Year 5 we are very lucky to be using three separate homework books which focus upon key skills in Literacy and Maths. Each week three tasks from each of the books will be set and the children will be expected to bring their work back the following day so we can mark the work together and quickly deal with any difficulties arising from the challenges

Resources

In Year 5 we use lots of resources to help with the children’s learning. Some of the webpages that we use, the children can use at home. Below, you will find links to the webpages. Your children should be familiar with these webpages and all have their own logins. If your child can’t remember their login, please ask the class teacher and they can replace it.
