Y5AC

Welcome to Year 5 – Y5AC

 

The children have made a fantastic start in Y5! We are pleased to see how smart everyone looks in their new uniform. Most children have come back to school with a great attitude to learning, and are aiming high in lessons. Well done to all the pupils who have remembered to read at home every night, and get their reading journal signed. This will really help with your progress in reading!

 

In Y5 our topic question is “Does change always lead to progress?”

We have done some fantastic work to start our new topic. Pupils have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons, and have been looking at how the country changed after their arrival. Children have enjoyed using the Ipads to do their research, and have presented their work in their proud folders. We enjoyed an outdoor lesson with Mrs Cafrello, when we learned all about time lines and events from the past. We are looking forward to learning more about the Anglo-Saxons and we can’t wait for our visit to Jorvik and The Dig!

Find out more about our topic by looking at our learning journey.

By the end of the topic, we hope to showcase our work at the Firth Park Library.

 

In maths, we have been working on place value. We have worked hard to read and understand numbers up to 5-digits. We have learned how to compare numbers and order them. Next we will move onto addition and subtraction, where we will build on our previous skills. Children are doing at great job in maths and are enjoying using the concrete materials to help them to solve problems.

 

In literacy we are writing to inform. After learning all about the dangers of pollution, the pupils are going to plan and write an information leaflet. Our work will be published and displayed in the school hall during BLP week. We aim to inform everyone about pollution and share ideas of how people can help at home. We continue to work on our grammar skills and are focusing on sentence structure, nouns, determiners, commas and spelling patters this half term.

 

Important Information

 

Thursday- Homework and spellings will be sent home. Spelling test will take place.

Friday – Swimming kit needs to be in school. If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school. If this is not possible you can also ring the school office.
