Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

 

Class Teacher: Mrs Robson-York

Miss Evans

Classroom Assistant: Miss Wing

Miss Woodier

 

Welcome to Year 5! We are looking forward to a fantastic year. 

 

Literacy

 

We will cover a range of different fiction and non-fiction topics. We will be using Talk for Writing to help us enjoy and understand stories, then use that knowledge to plan and write our own. Year 5 will then practise different genres of non-fiction, such as persuasive writing, newspaper reports, discussion texts and explanation texts.  

 

Alongside, we will also practise grammar skills. These will include: developing our use of complex sentences and relative clauses, parenthesis and using different types of punctuation such as colons and commas.

 

Year 5 will also read different texts throughout the year; our first class text is Varjak Paw by F.S Said.

 

Maths

 

We are now using the White Rose maths scheme to deliver maths to our pupils, which is based on the mastery approach. This half term we are focussing on place value, such as understanding the value and order of whole numbers and decimals. Additionally, we are working on addition and subtraction, using the column method to ensure fluency.  These topics will include some problem solving and reasoning skills.

 

IPC

(International Primary Curriculum)

 

We have started the term with the Brainwave Topic. This particularly focusses on 'what is good learning' and how we can look after our brains so that we get the best out of our learning. Moving forwards we will be covering the Topic Space Scientists, which is a science based topic looking at space, rockets and day and night. 

 

Homework

Homework will be set on a Monday and returned the following Monday. 

 

Spellings

Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
