Year 5

WKB 01.11.2021

What a beyond brilliant half term. We have been so impressed with all of Year 5 for their hard work in each and every subject so far this year. You should all be incredibly proud of yourselves for all your efforts. And we must say, the homework was absolutely fantastic. We were blown away by your efforts – thank you parents for your involvement in this as well, it’s great to see life long learning happening!


In English, we will be exploring diary entries on our return, after half term break. This will link brilliantly with our new class book ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’. As the children will be building up to writing from the perspective of one of the key characters.

Spellings are continuing to be a key focus in Year 5 and we highly recommend regular spelling practice at home, attached below are the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 spelling lists from the National Curriculum.



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

In Maths, we have learnt all about statistics and are nearly finished this unit. We will be consolidating our learning for the unit on our return as well as diving deeper into problem solving questions This children are now accessing more challenging questions now they have secured their base knowledge in this area. This means they are now beginning to successfully apply their understanding to real life problems through reasoning and problem solving multi-step questions.

Black History Month this October has been great and has given us all the opportunity to learn more in this area. Many shared how these people inspired and motivated them to do great things also. We have really enjoyed celebrating so many brilliant people.


Our topic this half term is Fairground Fun! Please check out our project overview and homework sheet which is posted on teams and also below.
