Welcome to Year 5!

In literacy this year the class will produce writing in a range of genres using a variety of grammar and punctuation features, some of which will be new. The class will also read a selection of age appropriate books that will form the basis of our writing and guided reading lessons. In numeracy, the class will look at number and place value and well as the four operations in different contexts.

In the foundation subjects the class will study a diverse range of topics including: Earth and Space (science); The Shang Dynasty (history); mask making (art); Judasim (R.E.); personal safety (PSHE and computing). In French, the class will learn vocabulary through topics such as Eating Out and Going on Holiday.

P.E. will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. P.E. kit needs to be worn in lessons so will need to be in school.

Homework will be given out each week on a Friday. This should be completed over the weekend and brought in on the following Monday. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on the Friday of the following week.
