During the second Autumn term, year 5 will be covering the following topics:
Numeracy: Multiplication and division, problem solving and statistics.
Literacy: ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo, Victorian Christmas literature and reading comprehension techniques

This term we will be continuing the Victorians homework choice grid for two weeks. After this, a Christmas themed grid will be sent home, one piece of homework from the grid must be completed each week. Maths homework and spellings focused on a specific pattern or rule will also be sent home each week along with a ‘spelling menu’ containing activity choices.
Reading and simply enjoying books at home with your child will also further their development as will helping them learn their times tables.
I hope this will give you a further insight into your child’s education. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
