Year 5

WKB 20.09.2021

A fantastic week with all the brilliant Year 5 team! All the children have been doing their absolute best and working hard. We are all so proud of how well they have settled so far, keep up the wonderful work Beijing and Washington!


In English this week, we will be learning about narratives. Last week we studied the structure of story writing and this week we will be planning our very own. We are continuing to read our class book… Tom’s Midnight Garden, an absolute classic which they are all thoroughly enjoying.

We recommend regular spelling practice at home, attached below are the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 spellings.



Attached are also some recommended books for Year 5: Book List

In Maths this week, we will be recapping our understanding of place value of numbers to 1 million. On My Maths, we have set our first Year 5 homework, giving you the opportunity to consolidate your understanding of our learning so far this term.

We have a very creative Art lesson coming up this week that is going to be great fun! The children will be expressing their emotions through listening to a piece of classical music. Watch this space to see more…

In RE we will have begun looking at the Five Pillars of Islam. This has allowed us to explore the concept of belonging in our own lives as well as in the life of a Muslim.
