Welcome to Year Five


Safer Internet Day video to the class homepage - enjoy!


It was really good to meet with all the parents last week during Parents' Evening. Thanks for your support in what we are trying to achieve this year - don't hesitate to come in and ask if you have any questions about what is expected of your child and how we can help them progress.

If your child has some unfinished work to complete, please can you ensure it is returned to school tomorrow?

This week, we will be completing our recount of our trip to Tatton Park and, in Maths, will be finishing our work on place value and completing our final assessment.  We will be making sure we read the questions carefully so that we fully understand the question.

In the rest of the curriculum, we will be continuing to learn about coding using the Kodable app on the iPads, having the growing up talk in Science, learning the C chord on the ukulele and practising our song: 'Viking Warriors are We' and learning about Christianity and how it relates to the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons.


The children all now have a new Learning Log piece of homework and new Maths homework has been set.


All the children have a new set of spellings to learn for Friday and have a homework sheet to complete for Friday.  Please ensure all of your children know their 2x, 5x and 10x tables ready for the test on Friday.


It's been a busy week in Year Five this week.  The week began with the discovery of a mysterious sword in the woods which, after investigative work, we discovered to be a Viking sword (see our News recount videos on the English class pages).

We have been working hard internalising a recount text that we have had read to use and have been working hard to ensure we are spelling words correctly.  All children should have brought home their spelling book with spellings to learn for the spelling test next Friday.

In Maths, we have been learning to read and write large numbers up to 1 000 000.  We have also been using in the computer room and all children have their online homework to complete.


We hope your children have settled in well to Year FIve and are looking forward to working hard to create our Viking museum.

Hi, could you please post some ideas for questions when chatting to the children about their reading? The list of different types of questions that you showed us at Parents' Evening would be great. Thanks, Adele Cook
