Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to 5M and 5S. In Year 5 the children will be working Ms Bazuaye and Ms Dhanda and  with an additional adult- Mrs Fisher. Your children may be working with other adults like the learning mentors be Mrs Campbell and Ms Coules. 

Things to Know

Reading: Children should come into school each day with their reading book and reading records. Class teachers will talk to the children about how to use their reading journals.

Curriculum

English:

This half term we will be focusing on the issue of homelessness in London.

Our core text is 'Way Home' by Libby Hathorne. 

 

Talk to your child about what this means, and how homelessness is a global issue.

 

Maths:

This half term we will be consolidating our knowledge of number, place value and looking at multi-step word problems, alongside investigations.

Over the coming weeks, the children will be able to access our new online maths scheme Mathletics, to support their learning at home.

Science: All Living Things

To help, it would be great if you could get your child looking at a range of plants, and the different parts make it. We are also looking at the life cycles of a bird and a mammal.

History and DT:

Why did the Saxons come to England?

The children will explore the Anglo-Saxons:  how they came to settle in England, making links between historic events and the present day.  This will culminate in an Anglo-Saxon Wow day at the end of half term for which they are welcome to wear an appropriate costume.  More information will follow in due course.
