Year 5

Writing

This term we finish our balanced argument based on whether uniform should be worn to school or not. This is followed by a diary entry, report writing and a narrative. All children will be developing their editing and proof-reading skills which is encouraged to ensure children have a firm understanding of grammar, vocabulary, punctuation and correct spelling.

Reading

We are starting a new book- ‘There’s a boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ (Louis Sachar). Children will be working as a group to discuss and answer questions based on the text. We will also develop the skills needed to work independently to read, understand and respond to comprehension questions.

Maths

During the Spring term we start by exploring multiplication up to 3 digits by 2. Then, we will move onto fractions, decimals and percentages. Children will work on their arithmetic skills whilst also developing their problem solving and reasoning.

Reminders

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

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

Brass instruments need to be in school on Monday’s ready for our lesson before lunch.

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, Wednesday’s and Friday’s.
