Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs East and Mr Ruffle are the class teachers and Mrs Swaine is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class 5, news, pictures of things we've done and more.

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 5. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Maths No Problem

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit http://www.st-lukes.hants.sch.uk/click-here-for-parent-videos-for-singapore-maths/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's.


The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 5. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your year group for use at home and also find out more about how Maths is taught in school, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html

 

We ask all parents to support children with learning their times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.

 

Please also remember to make use of  IXL https://uk.ixl.com/ and My Maths https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ to further support Maths at home.

 

N.B.  This table is under construction and will be updated shortly.
