We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday and have come back ready for the busy second half of Autumn term before Christmas.  We have been really impressed with how well and how quickly all the children have settled into Year 5.  We have seen a first class positive attitude towards learning and we are sure this will continue for the rest of the year. 


In English, we will be linking our learning to our new topic for this half term and a shock discovery on our school grounds!  


In maths, our focus is now on fractions.  We will be looking at equivalent fractions, finding fractions of amounts and how we use fractions in real life, linking to the four operations.   


Our topic this half term is all about the lives of Romans!  Its a brilliant topic that children always enjoy.  Don't forget Roman day on Monday 5th November!



5W's PE days are Monday and Wednesday.

5K's PE days are Monday and Thursday.

5S's PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.


Please make sure you have your PE kits in school on your class' PE days and that your Home School Contact Book is in school every day. 


Please feel free to come and speak to any of the Year 5 team or put a note in the Home School Contact Book.
