Welcome to Year 5! We are going to be doing lots of new learning together which we know you will enjoy. In Literacy this half term, we will be reading the story ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty. We will be exploring the story together and learning about the life of Jim Jarvis in Victorian London. This links nicely with our Cornerstones topic of ‘Firedamp and Davy Lamps’ where we will be learning about coalmines in Britain. In Maths we will focus on place value, rounding and addition and subtraction. Further information about the learning we will be doing can be found on the curriculum maps.
It is already evident that you have come back to school with a fantastic attitude towards your learning and we are looking forward to the year ahead with you.
If you complete any work at home that you would like to share with us please send it to
