Welcome to the Year 5 area! Your one-stop shop for updates on the latest topics, homework, trips and news. 

 

Welcome to Year 5!

Autumn 2 topic: Survival

Image result for desert island

We absolutely love this topic because it links to the wonderful Michael Morpurgo book - Kensuke's Kingdom. We will also be looking our survival lessons to science work by looking at the properties of material and how they can help us to survive. 

It's also one of our favourite terms as we will be looking at lots of festivities!

Mental arithmetic

In Year 5, we are having a huge focus on times tables - with the intention of all children knowing their times tables up to 12 x 12 by Year 6.

Here are some useful links to help with this goal:
