Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 page.
Welcome to our Year 5 page. This is where you will find our long term plan, termly letters, homework pages and spellings sheets for each term here. This will help you find out what we are up to each half term and give you a focus for homework activities that relate to our learning topics.Home learning should be a great opportunity for you to explore around our topics at school. Please share your home learning with the class.
Reading – please continue to read at home regularly, then record your reading in your reading log on a Friday morning.
Spellings– Our spelling tests are on Friday, so please make time during the week to prepare for the test. There are 4 different spelling lists, including words from the Year 5 curriculum and below to help your child learn spelling rules or words that they need to know.
Times tables – We are going to focus on various times tables this half term to plug some of the gaps a few of us still have. For those of you wanting an extra challenge, log on to TT Rockstars to practise the 13x, 14x and 15x tables.
KIRFs - Key instant recall facts are number facts that are simply helpful for us to know, without thinking. Please practice these for the test at the end of the half term - the focus this half term is on prime numbers.
TT Rockstars - This web-based app gives you a fun way to consolidate your times tables. These are set so that your child can practise and learn their next steps - to 12 and beyond.
