We are  learning about the Amazon Rainforest, living things and their habitats. 

We are improving our skills of writing non-chronological reports, skimming and scanning information texts and identifying key information.

 We prepare questions and make notes when searching the internet for a specific information for our topic work so we can write non-chronological and chronological reports,newspaper articles, letters and fictional stories.

In Science we are learning how to germinate seeds and propagate plants.We have planted runner beans, peas, sunflower seeds and geranium.

Maths is a very exciting subject and we are mastering our skills in applying four rules of mathematics into  whole numbers, fractions and decimals.

Year 5 children just love playing 'fizz/buzz' times tables game and we are getting better at it day by day.
We can even count decimal numbers on a number line, this helps us with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals.

Please help children to practise times tables 5,6,7,8,9,12 at random.


This term we would like to take children on a picnic to Crystal Palace Park to play games, eat ice-cream and to have fun.


Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned the following Tuesday.

It is important that children complete their homework as this helps to consolidate the learning they do in school. Developing good routines for completing homework will also support the children's independent learning skills.

Spellings will be given out every Friday and will be tested the following Friday.

We expect every child to read everday at home. Reading practice is most effective when done with a parent or other adult who can help their child by checking what they have understood from their reading.
