I am extremely excited to start my third year as part of the Woodlands Family, and second in Year 5. I have a passion for PE and cannot wait to develop the Year 5/6 Football, Athletics and Netball teams. My main strength is Maths, and I’m looking forward to developing and challenging the children of year 5. Outside school, I am a huge sports follower and an avid supporter of both the Northampton Saints and Arsenal. I am also really in to my fitness and can often be seen running around the streets of Chester. I am really looking forward to having a fantastic year with you all.

Welcome to Year 5!          

We had the most memorable time at beautiful Beaumaris in our final week before half term. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed stepping back in time to medieval Britain when exploring this World Heritage Site. Throughout the day, it was incredibly rewarding for children to use their extensive knowledge of castles to observe and identify the features of Beaumaris. 

After half term, we used our topic time to write a chronological report recounting our trip to Beaumaris castle. 

 

Literacy Learning

In the first half term, we focused on:
  • Nouns and noun phrases using adjectives, interesting nouns and preposition phrases
  • Subordinating conjunctions to write complex sentences
  • Relative clauses using who, what, when and which
In this half term, we will be focusing on:
  • Simple, compound and complex sentences using a variety of conjunctions
  • Expanded noun phrases using adverbs and adjectives
  • Paragraphing

 

Maths Magic

In the first half term, we focused on:
  • Values of the digits up to 6-digit numbers 
  • Rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000
  • Negative numbers 
  • Roman numerals 
  • Addition and subtraction
In this half term, we will be focusing on:
  • Times tables (learning what they are and ways to remember them)
  • Multiplication (up to 3-digit by 2-digit e.g. 321 x 56)
  • Division (sharing and grouping)
  • Division with remainders 

 

Things to remember...

Each day, remember to bring your reading record and a water bottle.

All homework will be given out on Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

Each task will be uploaded to this page so you have access to them at home if the task is lost or if you want to have another go!

Maths and Literacy

Each week, you will receive maths and literacy homework based on current learning.

Reading 

At least once a week in school, you will read with an adult in guided reading sessions. At home, we encourage you to read a further three times and record each read in your reading record with a comment about what you have read. You can also ask an adult at home to write a comment as well as their signature for the comments you have written. 

Times Tables 

All children must know all times tables up to twelve by the end of the year, which we will also learn and check in class.

Spellings

For each spelling group, there will also be regular spellings to be memorised.

Common exception words can also be found in the back of children's reading records which we have studied in class and must now be committed to memory.

Topic

When we begin a new topic, you will have the opportunity to research this subject before it has begun so you are ready for your learning.
