We are now doing fractions for this half term in maths. We have started with looking at equivalent fractions using practical resources.

We also looked at practical methods of working out fraction number sequences. 

Year 5 have been working hard to work with fractions using barmodels to support their reasoning. ‬

Another busy half term in maths in Autumn 2.

We investigated cube numbers using multilink cubes.

Year 5 have been completing factor bugs.

We then applied our knowledge to work out common factors.

We put our decorations on the Jesse Tree. We made a world to represent creation and an apple to represent Adam and Eve.


We have been working hard in maths in year 5! Addition and subtraction were our focus in Autumn 1.

WW1 Blackout Poetry

Year 5 created some amazing blackout poetry based on WW1. 

Royal Armouries

Year 5 had a fantastic trip to the Royal Armouries to learn about WW1

Learning at Home
Continuing our learning at home is essential in order for Year 5 to make the expected points in progress this year.

Homework: will be given out to all children on Thursdays and will contain a reading passage and their weekly spellings. Spellings will be tested the following Tuesday, along with timetables test through the week. There will also be a project each half term. If your child finds their homework difficult, or there is an issue at home resulting in homework not being completed, please write a note to myself and I shall support your child one lunch time. DO NOT complete your child’s homework for them – this neither benefits the learning of your child or my assessments.

Home Reading: Ensure pupils are reading on a daily basis and their Home Reading Record is signed by an adult. 

In addition to Weekly Spellings, Year 5 need to be learning and revising their 100 Curriculum Spellings.

Times tables: Times tables are an essential part of Mathematics. Having secure knowledge of Timetables will enable Year 5 to use and apply their knowledge across the Mathematics Curriculum.
