Our Year Groups

Welcome to Year 5

Our classes are 5 India and 5 Japan

We have been sent details that may be of interest to you regarding the Independent Schools Examination Board's Common pre-test:

"From September, parents will be able to register for free on a separate ISEB portal and to indicate from a drop-down menu where they will be sitting the test.   I will email parents of all registered applicants the link at the appropriate time.    For your information here are two links that parents currently have access to, providing them with guidance on the Common Pre-test and information on preparing their children:

Out topic

This half-term we will be learning about Greek mythology, specifically focusing our learning on The Adventures of Odysseus.

The Adventures of Odysseus: Amazon.co.uk: Lupton, Hugh, Morden, Daniel,  Balit, Christina: 9781846867033: Books

English

Each story of Odysseus'  adventure will give children a chance to write for different purposes whether it be diary entries, narratives or persuasive letters. Each week children will read a different adventure of Odysseus from the battle of with Cyclops to the song of the Spheres. 

Maths

This half-term in year five we will be basing our learning on the topic of geometry.   Children will work on measuring angles using a protractor, finding missing angles as well as delving into the properties of both 2D and 3D shapes

Children will also focus on the eleven times tables this half-term as well as continuing to work on a range of arithmetic skills. 

Please do remember to work on times tables at home.
