Year 5


We will start this term by writing a diary entry in relation to our class book ‘There’s a boy in the girl’s bathroom’. The children will look at parenthesis, the use of different sentence length and descriptive, informal vocabulary. Then, we will be writing a narrative using the book as a stimulus. We will be developing our use of vocabulary to describe setting and characters. Additionally, we will be looking at dialogue and time adverbials.


We are starting a new book- ‘There’s a boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ (Louis Sachar). Children will be discussing and answering questions based on the text exploring summarising, predicting and retrieving. We will also develop the skills needed to work independently to read, understand and respond to comprehension questions.


Our first term of Maths is focused around place value. Children will be developing their understanding of the value of each digit, reading and writing numbers as well as rounding, counting in 10’s,100’s and 1000’s and reading roman numerals.


Homework is due in on Mondays and set ready to take home on a Monday/Tuesday.

Spellings are issued on a Monday and any child who scores lower that 6 will receive extra support.

Reading is encouraged at home allowing children to complete quizzes in school. This is monitored to ensure children are reading at the correct level and are successful when testing.

PE kits (outdoor and indoor) must be in school on Tuesday’s.

Swimming kit, including long sleeved clothing and a waterproof coat must be in on Friday’s. Children need to have a spare change of shoes which could be trainers or wellies.

Every Wednesday afternoon we go swimming . All children must have their swimming kit.
