Welcome to our Year 5 page. Homework is given each Friday and is expected back on the Monday after the weekend. Spelling tests take place each Tuesday. PE lessons for class 5 are on a Monday and a Friday. PE kits need to be in school for these days. 


In English, we are completing our first fictional unit which focuses upon the author, Michael Morpurgo. Class 5 will be reading and discussing the book Kensuke's Kingdom, and will then go onto completing their own pieces of writing based on this text. 

 In Maths, we are focusing on place value and the four operations. It is vital that the children are confident with these skills, and are able to use formal methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide. It is also very important that the children know their times tables well, so please practice these at home.
