Year 5

Year 5 (Week Commencing 18th November)




This week we will be moving on to our first non-fiction discussion unit. We will be learning the model text 'Do Elves Exist?' Children will look at what makes the text effective to the reader and will apply some of these skills to short burst writing.



In Number lessons our focus will be refining our knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction using formal written methods

In Measures lessons we will be investigating and interpreting data.

We will be looking at a range of fluency, reasoning and problem solving tasks too.

This week in IPC ..

We will be finishing our unit 'Extreme Survivors!' 

Parents can help their child by…

*Listening to your child read at least 3 times a week and signing it in their pupil planners.

*Recapping the passport tasks for your child's next passport.

*Encouraging them to continue to develop speed and accuracy in times tables and division facts for up to 12x12.
