Welcome to the Year 5 page.
This year, 5A will be taught by Mr Fowler and 5J will be taught by Mr Gagen and Miss Byrne. The teaching assistants in year 5 are Mrs Frost and Miss Irvine.
Throughout this year we will be using a variety of quality texts during our literacy lessons. The books we choose will form the scaffold needed, for the children in year 5, to produce their written work. Other books and excerpts will be used to develop their reading comprehension skills too.
In maths we will be further developing the childrens understanding of number and consolidating their knowledge of abstract methods using pictorial and concrete representations to assist and prove what we have found.
During our RE sessions we will be studying areas related to our Catholic beliefs at each important time during the church calendar. We will also have a focus on other religions and look at similarities and differences between them.
We would recommend that you try to read with your child for around 20mins each day. Homework is given out on a Thursday and is due back in the following Tuesday.
