Miss Knowles

Year 5

Teacher: Miss Knowles

Teaching Assistant: Miss Raby





This term we are going to be reading 'Prince Caspian' by CS Lewis. Following on from the children's knowledge of 'Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe', we are going to working on our reading and writing skills. We have lots of creative and engaging activities to help us improve our skills this year.


For our Numeracy topics this term, we are focusing on 'Number' where we are adding and subtracting up to 100,000 including decimals. We will also be using the four different operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to complete word problems.

As always, we will be practicing and developing secure knowledge of our time tables using TT Rockstars.  Your child can use their school login details with the link below to practice their time tables at home:

Reading Books/Homework

Reading books are changed on a continual basis, as and when your cild finsihes their book, however we do ask that children change their books weekly.  The teaching staff will assist your child in changing the reading book to the correct level of challenge for their reading ability. It is important for children to read on a regular basis as it will enhance their learning in other areas of the curriculum.

Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and must be returned on a Monday, along with reading books/ records.

P.E Kits

Finally, please ensure that your child has a P.E kit in school for the half term and P.E will take place every Monday afternoon abd Thursday morning in Year 5.

The P.E kit should consist of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.
