Week beginning 27th November 2017

Year 5 notices/news

A very big thank you to all of you who donated presents for the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.  They are being wrapped this week and sent of in the next couple of weeks.  I know they will very much be appreciated.

Don’t forget to donate any bottle you have for the tombola stall at the Christmas Fayre on the 9th December.  It would be lovely to see as many Year 5 children as possible.

Congratulations to all those who received a merit card and a Privilege Card this week.  Keep up the hard work.

Don’t forget that Friday 1st December is Mufti day.  Please bring in a bottle for the tombola at the Christmas fair as payment for wearing your own clothes.

Next week, we will be learning the following:


I can divide by 10, 100 and 1000.

I can multiply and divide by multiples of 10, 100, 1000 (Reasoning).

I can multiply and divide by multiples of 10, 100, 1000 (Problem-Solving).

I can apply a range of multiplication and division facts and strategies to solve number problems.


We shall be writing our film reviews about the film Moana, following our trip to the cinema. We shall be looking specifically at the planning, writing and editing process. In our SPAG sessions, we shall be looking at how to up level sentences using descriptive vocabulary. 

RE/Art: We will continue to explore the (Christian) value of giving when designing and planning an advents calendar for another student in my class.

PE: We will have PE lessons outside until Christmas, due to the hall being used for the Christmas performance rehearsals. 

ICT: We shall be creating our very own Scratch Boat game!

Music: The children will secure and extend their Guitar and Piano skills during Soundstart (A-Minor, G-Major …).
