Year 5 2020 - 2021

Mrs Boden

Y5 teacher

Welcome to the Year 5 class page

This week's learning.  W/C 23/11/20

English learning - we are moving on to writing a newspaper report.  To begin the week, we will look at the features of a newspaper report.   Our report will be based on the poem Twas the night before Christmas

After reading the poem, we will be looking for quotations from the people involved and explaining what happened in the style of a newspaper report.  Our work will be on display in the school hall so we'll need to work really hard!

Moving on from our maths learning on factors, products, square and cube numbers, we will be putting our knowledge of our tables to the test when calculating long multiplications.

In science, we will become rust detectives and search out where rust has formed in the playground.  We'll set up a rust experiment in class to see what makes rust form.

Spellings for Friday's test were sent home but can also be found on Readiwriter (log on through Mathletics).  The spelling list has Friday's date (27.11.20).


Reading books can be returned to be changed on a Tuesday or Friday.  Please encourage your child to read a few pages each night. For the time being, book quizzes should be completed at home.  The link to the quiz page is: Accelerated Reader   (link updated).  This is also on the English channel on our Year 5 TEAM.

If you are struggling to access this at home please do let me know.

Mathletics homework has been set for all pupils and should be completed by Friday each week.  Comprehension homework should also be returned by Friday to be marked in class, I will upload this onto TEAMs so it can be completed either on paper or online.

Spelling test day is Friday and this week's spellings are on the English page.

P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday so kits must be brought in on both days and taken home again that night.

You can now access an online version of your child’s maths textbook and workbook click the Maths tab above to find out how.

We have tested out Microsoft Teams in class this week and, fingers crossed, it seemed to work ok.  I've set the comprehension homework online as well as on Teams.  As  a trial run, could you please try to complete the comprehension task on Teams?  yes

Link here is the same as on the instruction letter the children have brought home tonight:


Getting on Teams

Many thanks, Mrs Boden



If you are working at home at the moment I hope that you are able to access your maths online and you have keeping up with the reading and writing that was sent home.  Try to complete a page from your catch up booklet (either English or maths) each day.  Take care, Mrs Boden
