Year 5 2020 - 2021

Mr Carpenter

Mrs Axcell

Welcome back Year 5!

Mr Carpenter and Mrs Axcell are very excited to have you back in school to start the new school year. Our topic this half term will be the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons. To inspire Year 5 we will be using the text Beowulf this half term.

 Beowulf: Morpurgo, Sir Michael, Foreman, Michael:  9781406348873: Books


Homework is posted on the VLE every Friday, and will support the mental maths skills we are practising for our weekly test.

Spellings are now sent home by your child's spelling group teacher every other Monday. Your child will work on their group's letter pattern for two weeks and then they will be tested on the Friday. Spelling books must be in school each day. 

Daily reading at home is expected, making sure that children are mindful of their new ZPD score when selecting a book to read. To encourage children to read books by alternative authors and in different styles of writing, we have a weekly recommended read in class. In addition to this, you can use the website links below to help your child to find new books and different authors that your child may be interested in. We have seen that their reading spectrum has been broadened and this is having a positive impact on their reading ability, vocabulary range and writing.
