Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 at Colton.

The Year 5 Team is Miss Christie, Mrs Walker and Mr Brodie.

We do PE on Tuesday and Thursday, please make sure your child has appropriate kit and no jewellery.

During this half term we will be studying the Tudors. We will be continuing to understand methods of historical enquiry. Through Tudors we will order events chronologically, discuss the monarchs of the Tudor period and their spouses. We will also look closer at what life was like in Leeds during this time. In Science, we will be looking at properties and changes of materials.

This half term we will continue to write narratives and non-fiction using Talk for Writing. Our class novel is The Nowhere Emporium through this and other stories and poems we will be developing our reading skills using VIPERS.

In Maths we will be looking at multiplication and division using the long multiplication and bus stop method. The moving on to fractions in late Spring 1.

Please continue to support your child with their reading, spelling and Mathletics at home. We love to see what you do at home so please pop anything you can onto Class Dojo.

Thank you all for your continued support!
