Willow Class (Y5)

Autumn Term

Hello and welcome to Willow Class!


There are lots of exciting new topics this year:

English - We will be reading a new book 'Queen of the Falls.'

Science -  Changing states/properties of materials:  identifying solids, liquids and gases; evaporation and condensation in the water cycle, reversible and irreversible changes.

Humanities - Ancient Greece. Who are the Ancient Greeks? What were their beliefs? 

                      Settlements.  What are the features of a settlment? Locating four and six figure grid references,

Maths - Starting the term of with place value of numbers. Addition and subtraction written and mental methods to help the children to become quick and efficient mathematicians.

After half term we will be building on previous knowledge of multiplication and division. Looking at inverse calculations, prime numbers, factors, reasoning and problem solving. 


Plus, many other interesting lessons and activities to keep the brains active.


As always, we ask that you encourage your child to read as much as possible at home. I will be sending home a 'Home reading book' to be read at least 3 times a week. Please ensure that you sign your child's reading record.



P.E. will be every Tuesday and children must come to school wearing their kits in on this day. 

I will send home every week  (Friday due in Wednesday) relating to the work we have completed in school, sometimes this may be via Google classroom.
