Welcome to Year 5, where we blast in to space, solve fractions problems, write stories about imaginary planets, sail on the Titanic, explore Argentina, discover how chocolate is made and much, much more!!

These exciting topics stretch across the year to include various subjects, in order to make learning as interesting and relevant as possible. In Year 5, we also make an effort to involve the children in planning what they would like to learn about each topic, giving them greater ownership and ‘buy-in’.

Diaries, division and forces.

It’s been a busy few weeks in Year 5. In Maths, we have been working on our standard written methods of long multiplication and division. It’s been tricky, but we’ve been persevering. It’s great to see the children enjoying their successes and feeling confident to ‘have a go’. English sessions this week have brought tears…
