Welcome to Year 5!

From Thursday 25th April Year 5 will be attending forest schools for 6 weeks eachThursday mornings, please see the attached letter for details. Children will only be able to attend if they have written consent and will continue to attend as long as school behaviour rules are followed.

Year 5 will be having keyboard music lessons every Monday.

Homework is given out every friday and is expected to be returned by Tuesday every week.



We are currently working on fractions: finding equivalents, working with improper and mixed number fractions, adding, subtracting and comparing and ordering fractions.

 Year 5 have also been leaning arithmetic methods which are helping them improve and practise their written methods for calculations. Homework continues to be given with different work sheets on timestables to ensure that they are all comfortable and can work out equations up to x12. 


In English we are currently studying the Nowhere Emporium and been using a number of writing techniques to write our own prologue for an adventure story.


In Topic we are learning about the Ancient Greeks and what we know about different aspects of their society and lives.


In Science we are looking at types of reproduction in plants and comparing the life cycles of plants, mamals, amphibians, insects and birds.
