Welcome to Class 5



In Literacy, we will be producing work based on some inspiring and compelling short animations! We will write a newspaper article and also create our very own suspense stories. Read them if you dare…

We will also be celebrating ‘World Book Day’, where we will make our own story boxes based on our book, ‘Where the wild things are’. We will also act out parts of the story in groups and perform them in front of our peers!

Please read with your child at home and encourage them to change their book regularly. It is important that your child brings their book bag every day, too. Home Reading Records will be checked daily.


In Computing, we will continue to develop our publishing and editing skills, creating presentations based on our Topic work. We will also be learning about cyberbullying and writing ‘Agony Aunt’ letters of advice. 


In Maths, we will be learning all about fractions, including how to add and subtract them, simplify them and convert them to mixed numbers. We will also be solving a variety of reasoning problems, including true or false statements, missing numbers and working out whether something is always, sometimes or never true.

Please ensure your child knows all their times tables up to 12x12.

If you would like to learn more about what your child is covering in Maths and the methods they are taught, please speak to Miss Khan (Y5 teacher).


Weekly spellings, Literacy and Maths work will be sent out every Friday. Please ensure homework is completed by the following Friday. 


In PE we are lucky to be working with a specialist PE coach once again, where we will be learning how to play a variety of invasion games and develop skills such as team-building. 


In Science, we are taking part in a very special project! We’re using science to explore a new way of drawing; creating a journey of marks, patterns and images on cloth that are inspired by our family and each other. Responding to our collection of sometimes familiar and intriguing objects we’ll tell a story, a kind of timeline, incorporating some of our finds and treasures as we work alongside each other. Some of the changes we’ll make are as irreversible as the discoveries we’ll make together, creating new memories and marks that won’t fade.
