Year 5 Weekly Curriculum Information

Year 5 Weekly In Brief from Monday 5th March 2018 to Friday 9th March 2018


We will begin writing an adventure story, based upon the model texts, as well as our class readers. Students will focus on character and setting development to create tension and excitement.


We will be multiplying, dividing and simplifying fractions. Students will also start learning how to convert fractions into decimals and percentages.


Irreversible changes: Children will share their knowledge of reversible and irreversible change.


Students will learn vocabulary for food items. They will also practise asking for certain foods and saying whether they like or dislike certain foods.


    • A reminder that students should not be bringing toys or play things to school.
    • Spelling and times table practice should be completed on separate paper at home. Children need to practice their spellings and times tables as they will lose break/lunch time if they do not pass.
    • Please remind your child to read for at least 20 minutes each evening.
    • Children are not allowed sweets or fizzy drinks for a snack at play time or before clubs.
    • PE is on a Monday. Please ensure your child has their PE kits with them.
    • Students have been given manager roles within the classroom to gain independence. Speak to your child about their new role within the class.
    • Please ensure you check your children for head lice before sending them to school.
    • Year 5 pupils will be able to go to the Mothers Day Pop Up Shop on Wednesday. If they want to buy something, they will have to bring money in an envelope with their name and amount on it so it does not go missing – no more than £5.00.
