Year 5

Welcome back to Year 5!


We are so pleased to welcome the children back to school. We have had a great start to the autumn term and the children have returned with an enthusiasm for learning.


In English, we will be reading "Lift" by Dan Sandat and doing some writing relating to that text.  The children will have the opportunity to practise their sentence structure and punctuation by writing about their own experiences of walking through a magic lift!! Reading continues to be a key focus for all children and your support at home with this will be greatly appreciated.


In maths, we will be focusing on place value and the four operations to solve real-life word problems. A secure knowledge of times tables is essential for this so please support your child by practising at home whenever you can.


In geography we will be studying mountains and our DT this term will be based on seasonal cooking.


Please remember, we have an open-door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us, email us via the admin email account or contact the office to arrange a convenient time to speak on the phone.
