Year 5 Reading Spine
We have carefully selected these books which we will read with Year 5 over the course of the year. The books link with our History and Geography topics, exposing children to fantastic writing and represent the many cultures in our community. Click on the image below to explore the Year 5 book spine.
In Year 5, we are passionate about reading and expect children to read at home every night. Each time they read, their reading diary needs to be signed and dated. Now that the children are in Year 5, we expect the children to be writing in their reading diary themselves on some occasions.
Each Friday, we hand out one homework activity which relates to the learning we have covered that week in class. This homework is due in by the following Friday. Children who return their homework on time will recieve a reward!
This half term, Year 5's have been asked to bring in a project based on their history learning. Click on the image below for more details:
Throughout the year we will focus on different maths facts. Once they become automatic for children it will allow them to quickly recall the facts when completing more complex maths equations.
We are currently focusing on all timestables, fractions, decimals and percentages. Click on the image below to download a timestable grid.
Year 5 Knowledge Organisers
Our knowledge organisers give a detailed summary of what your child is learning in history, geography and science. They are a very useful tool to help you ask your child about what they have learnt in school.
