Year 5

Update for Week beginning 21.1.19

We have had an exciting week of learning this week with the children producing some beautifully imaginative pieces of writing when creating their own planet.  They then created wonderful planets in art that have taken the form of our own solar system in our classrooms.

English and Maths information:

In English next week, we will be continuing to look at persuasive writing in different types of writing and beginning to create our own persuasive piece of writing for our own holiday destination in space.

In Maths we will be looking at mass and capacity.  This will include converting units from g to kg and ml to l.  The children will continue to work on their times tables in our weekly times table challenge and also practise worded problems in relation to our maths topic.

Other curriculum news:

We will be continuing our topic of Space and looking at the different seasons and shadows.

General Information:

Outdoor PE will be on Tuesday afternoons when we will be going to Kings Park together with Year 6 and Indoor PE will be on a Wednesday.

Please ensure that suitable kit, including tracksuit bottoms, is in school so that we can all participate fully. It is still very cold outside so please ensure your child has warm clothes to wear for when we go to Kings Park.

Our library slot is on a Monday afternoon and this will be a chance for the children to spend time in the library and also change their books each week if they choose to.


They also have log ons for Times Table Rockstar – please encourage your child to log on and have a go – even battle against their friends.

The homework project overview and our new topic overview is on the website on the Year 5 web page.

The children will have spellings to practise in their home school book. Please work through the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spellings if there are no specific spellings set for your child.
