Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 5
Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Button
Summer Term 2022
We are delighted to welcome you all back after the holidays and hope that you have had a lovely Easter break and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine we saw.
We will be starting a fabulous new book this half term which will hopefully make us more aware of the climate and what we can do to help and save our planet.
Our maths this half term looks at addition and subtraction, multiplication of fractions, decimals, properties of 2D and 3D shapes and translating shapes on a co-ordinate grid.
Our geography focus is based around fair trade and we will be discussing the question 'Why is Fair Trade Fair?'
Our PE day has moved from Wednesday to Friday for this term as we are starting yoga. Please make sure you wear your PE kit on the correct day. Everything else remains as it was.
If you have any questions or concerns, or anything important to tell us, please email the class 5 email address:
Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year
for the children of Class 5.
Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Button.
