Year 5

Hello all, I hope everyone is well and ready to tackle their new learning environment. 

Topic: Below you will find a topic project for children to complete. This can be as detailed as you like. I would like to encourage children to make it as creative as possible. The project should be running for the next 4 weeks. Each week, children should decide which aspect of the project they would like to complete before planning and creating it.

English: This week, children will begin to create an anthology of writing. It will be a showcase of their current ability. Each writing task should be planned, written and then edited before the final text is written. Today please complete the time travel text (pages 5-7)


Maths: Please find attached a PowerPoint document with this weeks learning. We will be continuing to develop our understanding of percentages. The PowerPoint runs through the sequence of teaching as well as containing some questions for the children to practice their learning.


I am available throughout the school closure through email. If you have any concerns or would like advice on where you can find extension tasks, please email admin and they will pass on your message to me.


I hope to see you all soon.
