Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Autumn 1

Year 5 are having a brilliant first half-term. They have completed some super learning across all areas of the curriculum. Maths has had a focus on place value and exploring larger numbers up to 1,000,000. In English, they have been reading the 'Nowhere Emporium' which they are loving. We are preparing to write our own room of 'Wonder'. Our Topic 'Back to the Dark Ages’ is well underway. A highlight so far has been the class travelling back in my time machine visiting periods through history to get to the Anglo-Saxons. They have also enjoyed the VR experience of the Vikings. The Year 5 children have also enjoyed French this term; their confidence is improving greatly! Ask them to sing you the French alphabet! The class text has been 'High Rise Mystery' by Sharna Jackson, which the children are enjoying lots, trying to solve the crime. It’s lovely having the time to get stuck into a good book and share ideas together. We are looking forward to what the rest of the term will bring.


Year 5 have had a busy time so far and are excited about all the learning to come!
