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 22/03/2021

In English, we will be continuing our work with the Tale of the Three Brothers. This week we will use the knowledge we have gained over the past couple of weeks to write our own traditional tale.

In our spellings for the week, we are learning words that have been converted from nouns or adjectives into verbs using the suffix -ise:

  • criticise
  • advertise
  • capitalise
  • finalise
  • equalise
  • fertilise
  • terrorise
  • socialise
  • visualise
  • vandalise

In Maths, we will be continuing our unit on decimals. We will look at rounding decimals, comparing and ordering decimals, understanding percentages, writing decimals as percentages and equivalent percentages, fractions and decimals.

If you would like to support your child with their maths work you could work on pages 20-22 in the maths work booklet.

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 as often as you are able. There has also been a lot of research to suggest that turning on the subtitles on your TV can really benefit a child’s reading.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Thom
