Year 5

Miss Crabtree, Mr Storey and Miss Easton

Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to Year 5 where Mr Storey, Miss Crabtree and Miss Easton work very hard to ensure the children in Jade and Gold class become skilled mathematicians, creative writers and inquisitive  learners!

This half term we are focusing our writing and reading around the cultural stories from Ancient Egypt. For example, we are reading the illustrated novel ‘The Scarab’s Secret’ to introduce children to the Ancient Egyptians and inspire their creative writing. We will be using these texts to write our own stories with cultural and historical settings. We are focusing on encouraging the children to include a lot of vivid description in their writing. To make their descriptions successful, the children will be exploring using figurative language (similes, metaphors and personification), engaging adjectives, powerful verbs and adverbials.

This half term in maths we will be looking at multiplying and dividing and perimeter and area.

We will cover:

* Square, cube and prime numbers.

* Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.

* Measuring, calculating and solving problems with perimeter.

* Finding the area of rectangles, compound shapes and irregular shapes.

* Written methods to multiply and divide.

Keep checking in here to see all the fantastic learning happening in Year 5.
