Year 5 have been busy creating their own dens based on our class text "The Explorer"

Year 5 have completed a fantastic Design & Technology project based on food from Brazil. They learnt all about the cooking process alongside safety in the kitchen. They then went onto bake Brigadeiro's (Brazilian Truffles) and Pao De Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread). It was great fun!

Look at our fantastic images from Roman Day! The children had a wonderful day creating Roman Shields, Coil Pots, Mosaics, Exploring Artefacts and even made a Roman Tortoise formation.


In Year 5 we will be completing a range of homework activities, most will be set on a regular basis, some might be occasional and linked to our termly topic.

Reading-You need to read for a minimum of x3 a week at home. Each time you read, please enter the details into your reading diary and ask an adult at home to sign the entry for you. Reading diaries are due in for checking every Friday.

Spellings- Every Friday you will be given a set of spellings to practise throughout the week at home. We will also complete activities during the week at school on the spelling rule sent home. Every Friday you will have a spelling test during English to test you on the spellings you've been working on. You don't need to hand in your practise sheet but please be prepared for your test!

Maths - Maths homework will be issued on a Thursday and is due in the following Thursday. You will be set a piece of work in your Maths Homework Book based on the current topic(s) we are learning in class. I would also like you to practise your times tables at home on a regular basis. I've attached some links you might like to use to help with this.
