Welcome to Year 5
We are looking forward to the new term ahead. We have lots of exciting topics to learn about.
In our maths lessons we will learn how to answer reasoning questions, alongside the skills that we cover in our curriculum. It is important that children practise the skills that they learn in school, in order to do this they can access MyMaths (at www.mymaths.co.uk/primary.html) or MathsWatch (at http://www.mathswatchvle.com/mathswatchprimary). Your child will have their own password and Login details, which they have been given (if they cannot find it, please let one of know and we will print it out for them). Every week the children will be set a piece of written maths homework, and in addition, there will be work for them to complete on MyMaths.
In English we will be examining fiction and non-fiction, based on the topic of we are learning about each term. We will be working hard on improving the style of our writing. Children will be using all of the skills that they have been learning to create pieces of writing. They will learn to edit their own work, and then improve upon what they have written. They should continue to learn the Year 5 spelling list. The children will receive one piece of written homework per week, and in addition they are expected to regularly read and learn their spellings.
We would like to remind pupils that they should ensure they come to school each day with everything that they need (including packed lunches and P.E. kits).
If you have any concerns, or would just like a chat, please come and talk to one of the Year 5 staff.
Thank you for your support.
