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. 



We could have read all morning!

Weekly Homework

Homework will be sent home each Friday and will alternate between Literacy and Numeracy. It will need to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Remember to ask for help if you need it. This week have a look at your spellings and do not forget to read. Remember, keep looking at the night sky and see if you can take pictures of the moon and stars.                                                                 





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?






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.....





In numeracy this half term we will be focussing on the different ways we can use to carry out multiplication problems, looking at missing number and word problems as well as time in numeracy. 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.






       Literacy - as a class we  will be reading 'The Disappearing Moon' by Simon Bartram




 We will be looking at newspapers and whether they are still relevant in their original form in todays society, we will be looking at what makes a good headline and how the newspaper companies sell their stories. We will also try to create our own class paper to share with you.


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.










With a exciting trip to Sherwood Observatory at the end of November we will be concentrating on learning more about our solar System including the importance of the moon and why we may not be alone.







With space being our topic for the half term we will be trying to design our own spacesuit and moon buggy to assist us in our adventure into space.

We will be continuing to report our weekly reading scores here so you can see just how well (or not) we are doing as a class at completing our 4 weekly reads challenge. Last term we managed to achieve 100% on one of the weeks. Lets try for 4 weeks this half term. Remember when you achieve 30 reads you receive a bronze reading certificate,i




A magical moment is a special event that you experienced in your life. It could be funny, thoughtful, simple or heroic, but what matters is that special feeling you experienced. I look forward to hearing and sharing your magic moments.
