Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome back..I hope you all had an amazing break. The last term of year 5! There is a lot coming up this term and I look forward to working with your children.

 

In Summer term 1 we will be learning about royal weddings, in preparation for Harry and Meghan's big day. After half term we will be starting our topic, 'Hoist the Sails'.

We will be discussing what service is, different ways we can show service and sharing our stories of service.

Upcoming Dates

 

 

Week commencing 5th June 2018

 

 

Core subject information

 

English - We have started reading a book called 'The Royal Wedding Crashers' and we will be using this book as inspiration for writing adventure stories. This week we will be writing our own adventure stories, where we will be using the royal wedding as inspiration. 

 

Maths - We will continue to work on decimals, and we will be moving onto multiplying and dividing decimals. 

 

Please ensure that your child is revising the tables at home. Doodle Maths has an app called Doodle Times Tables and they use the same log in details as Doodle Maths to sign in. This will assist them in learning the tables and they are able to earn stars at the same time. 

 

Reading - Together we will be reading another text and discussing the questions. The questions are mainly inference based.  

 

Geography - We are looking at using a compass and understanding directions and ordnance survey maps.

Homework and Spellings

 

 

Maths homework:  Doodle Maths - I will set homework based on Multiplication, Division and Fractions that we cover throughout this week. I would like to see each child earn at least 50 stars this week. Should your child have any difficulty with the homework tasks I set, please could you send me a message in the Partnership book.

Spelling Test: Friday 8th June (Normally Monday, but for this week Friday)

 

Reading for Pleasure:

Please ensure that reading is taking place daily. It is vitally important for your children to read.  

If they would like to qualify for a reading badge, they will need to read four times a week for the entire term.  I will only know if they have completed this task if you sign their partnership books.
