Year 5

Week Beginning 23rd September

 

Maths: We will be learning about negative numbers. We will be looking at the symbols used to represent numbers up to 1000 and be solving problems involving Roman Numerals.

 

Writing: We will be writing our own versions of My Name is Bob. We will be including description of the characters, speech and show not tell (describing what is happening to a character without explicitly saying it). 

 

Reading: We will be continuing to read Wolves of Willoughby Chase and answering questions based on retrieving information, infering what is meant by the author and the vocabulary within the text.

 

Project: We will be focusing on artist William Morris and creating our own artwork based on his work.

 

Reminders:

 

Book donations: We would like to expand our collection of books in our classrooms. If you have any books at home that you are no longer reading we would really appreciate it if you could donate them to the school. If you would like to donate please hand them to your child's class teacher who will make sure they are put to good use. 

 

Please ensure your child has their full PE kit and wellington boots in school all week. We have specific days for PE and woodlands, however there may be other occasions during the week when PE kits or wellington boots may be needed.

PE - Monday and Tuesday

Woodlands - Wednesday

 

Reading records need to be in school everyday. Children can change their books when they have finished them. Please ensure that all reading is being recorded because there is an expectation for the children to read at home at least 5 times a week.

Week Beginning 16th September

 

Maths: We will be learning about negative numbers. We will be looking at negative numbers in a variety of contexts including temperatures, sea levels and money. We will be adding and subtracting using negative numbers and solving problems using these skills.

 

Writing: We will be looking at our model text, My Name is Bob, in more detail. We will look at the language features that have been used and considering the effect these have on us as a reader.

 

Reading: We will be focusing on inference. We will be looking for clues in the text that give us information about the story without explicitly telling us what is happening.

 

Project: We will be continuing with our topic What Makes Britain Great. We will be learning about the Royal Family and historical monarchs.

Welcome Back!

 

We have had a great few days back in year 5, it is lovely to see all of the children returning with a positive attitude towards their learning! 

 

Reminders:

Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit (clearly named please) in school all week. Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday, however  there may be times when trainers are needed on seperate occasions. 

 

We are lucky enough to have the lovely woodlands and allotments on site so your child will also need to have wellington boots in school for these sessions. Our woodlands day will be on a Wednesday, however there may also be seperate times when these are needed. 

 

Spellings- Spellings test will be each Thursday. New spellings are given on Fridays.
