In  year 5 pupils are expected to complete weekly homework. Homework will be set every Wednesday to be handed in on Monday. In addition pupils are expected to change their reading book and read regularly at home.



English:  In English we will be focusing on a new novel, called Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll.  It supports and links in well with what the children have learned in the Egyptian topic.

Remember to practise: Equivelant fractions, Ordering fractions, Improper and Mixed fractions, adding and subtracting fractions. Multiplying fractions, finding amounts of fractions.

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has labelled PE kit in school. In KS2 we prefer the children to wear trainers rather than plimsolls in PE as they are more supportive.
