In Spring 2 our topic is Reconciliation, leading into Lent.
In English this half term we will be reading 'Wild Boy'.
There will also be daily handwriting, reading and spelling practice, with lots of opportunities to write.
Punctuation and Grammar:
Please make sure that you can recognise and explain:
- prepositions (or see here)
- conjunctions (or see here)
There is a handy guide to all this here for adults.
New spellings are given out at the start of a half term, and every Friday children are tested on that week's spelling. It is encouraged that children practise these at home in addition to the termly homework grids. There will be daily practice of spellings and spelling patterns.
This term, Year Five will focus on:
Fractions, decimals and percentages alongside perimeter and area, and continuing arithmetic practice.
- The children have a Times Table test every Monday and a Times Tables champion is chosen from either someone who has scored well or improved lots!
It is encouraged that children practise these regularly at home, and also continue to practise their formal written methods of arithmetic.
