Year 5

Update for Week beginning : 27.3.2017

Year 5 have been busy with their assessments this week. They have done so well and really proved to us just how much they have learnt since September. We are hoping this continues through to the summer!

Sadly we have not been able to arrange the museum trip for this half term, however, we are postponing and will aim to go to the museum during our next project. It is an opportunity not to be missed!


English and Maths information:

In English, Year 5 have been set the challenge to create and pitch a film script to a director over the next 4 weeks. This week they have started writing a script for an exciting scene. Their portfolios are coming together nicely!

In Maths for the next few weeks we are starting to convert fractions from decimals to percentages. We will aim to look at how the three can relate to each other and applying this to problem solving.

Other curriculum news:


As we come to the end of our ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’ topic, the children will be creating a museum to display all their hard work and exciting discoveries.

The museum will be in the Year 5 classrooms on Thursday 6th April and will be open from 2:30 until 3 and we would love to see as many of you there as possible!


General Information:

PE will continue to be on a Tuesday and Wednesday this half term, with outdoor PE being on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit and trainers in school.
