Year 5

Year 5

Welcome Back to Year 5!

This year seems to have flown by, and here we are in Term 6 with seven weeks to go. We shall be maintaining our topic on Ancient Greece, which the children are finding very interesting. Sadly, a trip to Greece is beyond our budget, at the moment.

In Maths, we shall begin with perimeter and area, using our maths scheme ‘Singapore Maths’. Once we have covered this topic we intend to use the remainder of the term to revise and assess children knowledge of all the expected targets for Year 5. In this way, we can give them the best start in Year 6.

In Literacy, we are starting the term with recounts and then looking at stories from other cultures. Chinese myth stories seemed a good place to begin. We will also be assessing children’s grammar and punctuation to prepare them for next year and helping them to edit their own work for improvements.

Please remind your child that PE is on Wednesdays as we have had several who continually forget kit. In addition, children should be reading every night. We know this can be difficult, especially as we would like to promote reading for pleasure, not as a chore! Please try and encourage your child to read by sitting and reading yourself or discussing favourite books of your own.

We hope your child has enjoyed Year 5! If you have any concerns please let us know.

We hope your children enjoy the new topic and have a successful half term!
