English 

For the past few weeks in English, we have been focusing on non-chronological reports. This week, we were looking at different non-chronological reports and trying to find their features. These include: title, sub-headings, introductory paragraph, summary, standard English, diagrams, labels, captions, technical vocabulary, facts, and punctuation for parenthesis. 

Maths 

In Maths, we have been looking at equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. We have worked really hard on the percentage part. At the start of the week we did percentages represent on a hundred ,fifty and twenty grid. Then we went towards the converting and equivalent side. Here are some quotes from the class. 

“ I found the percentages fun and challenging” said Finn 

History 

In history this week we have been working on the wars of the roses . We have been making timelines and drawing the main characters such as, Richard Neville the earl of Warwick, King Henry, Richard Duke of York and Edward the 4th . We have all found this topic very enjoyable.

How you can help!

Year 5 will be given weekly homework that is set on a Friday and handed back in for marking by the following Thursday. This consists of an English or topic task and a Maths task based on the learning in class that week. The children will also be given weekly spellings to learn, which will be tested on a Friday.

Home Learning

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis. 

Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practiced; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
