Welcome back to Term 2. Our Topic for Term 2 is a Science and DT related one - 'Fit For Purpose'. The new Topic web is now available to view by clicking on the 'Topic Webs and Timetable'  blue tab to the right of this page.

We will continue our new Fiction unit in English focusing on suspense writing. Key vocabulary includes: onomatopoeia, rhetorical questions, suspense, tension, simile and metaphor. In Maths we will look at mental multiplication and division methods and written multiplication methods.   Key vocabulary includes: multiplication, division, mental stretegy and product.

PE with Mr Lett will be on Wednesdays as usual.   In addition, the Royal High School coaches will be coming on Friday afternoons in Term 2 to continue their coaching sessions of netball and hockey. Please remember PE kits next week.

Homework this week is a Science task. We would like the children to search for different materials around the home and describe their properties. A recording sheet is glued in the Homework Books. In addition, Term 2 spellings have been sent home with your child this week. They will now need to be learned for a weekly test, starting on Wednesday 14th November.

Have a lovely weekend.

The Year 5 Team.
