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 Wednesday and a Friday. PE kits need to be in school for these days. 


In English, we have just finished the Anne Fine fictional writing topic. The children have refreshed their memories and produced some excellent stories. Our next English unit will focus on poetry, where year 5 will be able to write and perform their own. 

 In Maths, we are focusing on place value of 5 digit numbers as well as addition and subtraction. Class 5 are working hard on using their place value knowledge to add and subtract mentally and by using column written methods.
