Welcome to Class 5

I hope you all had a lovely half-term break and the children are ready to learn again. We welcome Miss Perkin to Class 5, who is our new Teaching Assistant.

This half-term we are having a huge focus on reading and handwriting. We would like the children to read at least 3 times a week: this is so important to improving their fluency and also developing their vocabulary. We have introduced a new handwriting scheme throughout the whole-school and the children will be writing in pencil until their handwriting is completely legible.

In Literacy, we will be reading a book called Beowulf from our favourite author: Michael Morpurgo. This book will be a stimulus for various pieces of writing such as a historical text about the Vikings, a description of Beowulf, a diary entry as Beowulf, a Kenning poem for his sword. In Maths, we will be learning all about fractions: comparing and ordering fractions with different denominators, adding and subtracting them, and multiplying them by whole numbers. For a more in-depth overview of what we will be learning this half term, please see our curriculum overview.


As you can see, we have an awful lot to do and it is vital that the children return to school with a positive attitude and willingness to learn. I know they can do this and I look forward to watching them grow and improve personally and collectively throughout the new term.

Should you have any questions or concerns that you wish to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me or a member of the Year 5 team.

Kind regards,


Miss Henderson
