Topic Work Autumn 2


This term we will be looking into Space and investigating our solar system . We visited the Sherwood Observatory and found out some amazing facts!





Will we ever put another person on the moon?



       Literacy - as a class we  will be reading 'The Disappearing Moon' by Simon Bartram and using this to help us find the features of newspapers and write newspaper reports , including using direct and reported speech.

In S.P.A.G we will be looking at a new way to improve our spelling in our writing and create even more ambitious vocabulary to use. 




Remember ,we still need to use everything else we have learnt so we can reach the top of the S.P.A.G ladder.


Spelling is very important this year and , like times tables ,we will be doing them everyday. Try to learn them to stand a chance of challenging a teacher to a spell-off.  The 5/6 spelling list can be found at the foot of this webpage.

Rush To Read

Wow! What terrific readers we all are in Year 5! We rushed to read our books this week, together with the rest of Key Stage 2.



In numeracy this half term we will be consolidating our work on;


Place value (including decimals)

Dividing and Multipying by 10 , 100 and 1000 

Decimals numbers

Word problems (reasoning)

Time (digital and analogue

Measurement (calculating perimeter and area) 




We will also continue with our daily times table challenge. We nearly have everyone having defeated Batman, we need to keep battling.  Remember , if you succeed all week you may get to challenge a teacher in a times table competition. I am yet to win.

Keep working on strategies to help you improve.





Practice your times tables in readiness for our weekly challenges.













Those Eagles (y6) are always annoying we decided to kidnap one and hold him to ransom - unlucky Tyler.B - unfortunately they then took our Grace hostage! We managed to negotiate a deal and peace was restored after a tense stand off....until next time.....

Christmas Party Fun! Well, we all had a fabulous time at the Key Stage 2 Christmas party on Thursday....there was dancing, pass the parcel (with sweets and forfeits!), musical statues and some crazy dancing! In the afternoon we had party food and Annesley was visited by the wonderful Don the Magician - marvellous! From all the Falcons, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2018!
