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 are completing our Harry Potter fiction unit. The children in class 5 have loved creating their own fictional story booklets for others to read. Class 5 have become confident with their use of expanded phrases, cohesion and tension to engage the reader.

 In Maths, we are focusing on shape, space and measure for the next few weeks. During this topic, class 5 will be using protractors to measure and identify angles, as well as using properties of 2D and 3D shapes to classify. It is very important that the children know their times tables well.
