Year 5 2020 - 2021
Welcome to the Year 5 class page
It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school. Hopefully they are no longer feeling nervous and are settling in to our new routines.
Reading books were sent home on Friday. They can be returned to be changed on a Tuesday or Friday. Please encourage your child to read a few pages each night. For the time being, book quizzes should be completed at home. The link to the quiz page is: Accelerated Reader (link updated).
If you are struggling to access this at home please do let me know.
Mathletics homework has been set for all pupils and should be completed by Friday each week. Comprehension homework should also be returned by Friday to be marked in class.
Spelling test day is Friday and this week's spellings are on the English page.
P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday so kits must be brought in on both days and taken home again that night.
You can now access an online version of your child’s maths textbook and workbook click the Maths tab above to find out how.
This week's learning
The children are drafting and editing their adventure stories based on Anthony Browne's Gorilla. I am very impressed by their imaginative work!
At the end of the week we'll be moving on to our next topic-zoos, prison or paradise? The children will be learning to write persuasively. There is a link on the English page to a persuasive writing unit for any children currently isolating.
Mathematics learning will complete place value. We have looked at rounding numbers to the nearest hundred thousand. We will move onto addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 1 000 000 using a variety of methods.
This week's science work on materials is a comparative test of different kitchen roll for absorbency and strength.
We continue to work on positive thinking and letting go of worries in PSHE.
