Year 5

Hello Year 5s,

We are so excited to get to teach you this year. It has been a very strange and challenging year for us all so we are really looking forward to coming back to school and being able to properly teach a lovely group of children again.

We have been working really hard to sure that when you come back school will be safe, familiar and fun. We will have a great year together and we are eager for it to start!

Miss Thom and Mrs Parry


WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 5th January 2021

This week in English, we will be practising our comprehension skills, with a particular focus on inference, evidencing and understanding what the question is asking.

Our spellings for the week we are creating nouns using -ity suffix:

  • community
  • curiosity
  • ability
  • captivity
  • activity
  • sensitivity
  • possibility
  • flexibility
  • visibility
  • eternity

In maths, we will be recapping the mathematical units we learnt last term. These include: place value, addition and subtraction, statistics, multiplication and division (prime numbers, square numbers, cube number, factors, multiples and multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 or 1000) and area and perimeter.

Please continue to practise times tables with your children; the quicker they are at their times table facts the easier they will find maths. You can support your child’s learning by reading with them.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Thom
