Year 5 Updates

Year 5 had an enjoyable day at Hever castle, learning more about Tudors and Anne Boleyn’s home in Kent. This week we have compared maps of Tudor London and modern day London as well as write non-chronological reports about crime and punishment under the reign of King Henry VIII.
Next week we will look further at King Henry’s life, marriages and heirs to the throne. In maths, we will move on to rounding numbers to 100000 as well as continue to read numbers accurately and recognise their place values.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening at 7pm, for the parents talks.
Additionally, you are all invited to the whole school mass on Thursday morning (weather permitting).
Thank you for your support over the last two weeks, your children have settled in marvelously and are making us proud in Year 5. Have a great weekend!
The Year 5 team.
07/09/2018  We would like to wish you all a very warm welcome back to school. Life in year 5 has changed a little with our library now in our shared area. We have the theme of ‘The Secret Garden’, a place where adventures will unfold with your children as they continue on their reading journeys. We recognise that the school is undergoing a huge transformation at the moment and thank you for your tolerance and support in keeping the children safe.
This term we will be travelling back in time to the Tudor era. As we visit Hever castle we will begin to consider life across three centuries, recognising the impact of King Henry’s reign over England.
The first week has seen an introduction to this topic as well as a revision of place value in maths, considering what we know about materials and their properties in Science as well as preparing to write a non-chronological report in English. Please speak to your class teacher if you would like to more about our exciting year ahead!


There will be no football club after school on Wednesday 18th September.

Whole School Mass will take place this Thursday on the Year4/5 playground at 9.15am. Everyone is welcome!
