Year 5

Update for Week beginning 25.3.19

We have had a very exciting week this week bringing our Greek vases to life using acrylic and crayons.  They look amazing!

We have also had a visit from the Chiropractic College who spoke to us about their job.  They showed us lots of different exercises we could do to keep our bodies moving and healthy and explained the importance of our spine and bones.


English and Maths information:

In English next week, we will begin writing our Greek myths.  We will be using the mythical creature, hero and quest we have created to write an exciting and gripping myth.

In Maths, we will be continuing with our work on scaling and also completing mini assessment to see how much we have learnt so far this term.

Other curriculum news:

Every Monday we will be completing a mile run. Often called the ‘Daily Mile’, as we are encouraging moving and healthy living.

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.


New MyMaths has been set and children should complete any tasks set regarding:

  • Scaling and rate problems

The MyMaths for previous weeks:

  • 2D and 3D shapes
  • Nets of shapes
  • Percentages of amounts.
  • Fraction, decimals and percentages 1

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.
