Y5 Curriculum Notes – Week Beginning 7.12.20

Week beginning 7th December 2020

Dear Parents and Pupils,

Bikeability Group 3 will take place on Monday 7Th December. Group 2 were given their alternative date of Tuesday 15th December.  Please ensure you read the letter so that you know what children have to bring in with them.

We have been very busy bees with Christmas bits as well as fitting all our Shakespeare topic in also. The children will need to have their Christmas jumper in school next week for the recording of our Christmas extravaganza.

Any Christmas cards the children would like to give out to their friends will also need to be in school by the end of next week so they are safe to hand out during the following week.

Please find below information and homework for the upcoming week.

We have finished reading Macbeth and will be concentrating on writing a newspaper report.

We are working our way through ‘The devil and his Boy’ – our class reader.

Guided reading: LO to summarise a text / piece of text.

Mrs Smith’s group: Multiplication and division

Mrs Boughton’s group : Timetables and conversion of time.

Topic: Using grid references for mapping and create their own maps.

Science: Forces, looking at the effects of Friction

DT: Complete felt baubles and start designing and making cards and calendars.


Literacy: Some of the children still do not know the words off by heart – please ensure these are learnt during the weekend, ready for Monday. I wish it could be Christmas everyday Lyrics












Next Thursday the children will have their end of Half term spelling assessment for Autumn 2 so please revise the words you have had to learn this half term.

The children will also have the opportunity to place their bauble on the School Christmas tree on Monday so we thought it might be a nice activity for them to do for homework. They can design and make any type of bauble and bring it into school for Monday. Your name must be clearly seen on the back.

Maths – Work has been set to complete for next Wednesday on Mathletics. This will be checked and all certificates will be given out next Friday in our class assembly.
