The word-lists for years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6 are statutory. The lists are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell.

Every week on Monday children will also be given spellings to learn.These words may follow a particular spelling rule or may be taken from the statutory spelling list. There is a spelling test on Friday and after the test children will be expected to continue to apply these spellings to their writing.

Autumn 1 



In maths this term we have been learning about place value, addition and subtraction and properties of number including factors, multiples, prime, cubed and square numbers. 

Year 5 Autumn Maths



In October we had a very special visit from the Curiosity Cube where classes in KS2 had the opportunity to learn about bacteria in the classroom, contamination and PH levels. We had a great time and we now have lots of budding scientists in our class! 



In RE we have been writing litanies to thank God for all of our wonderful gifts and talents. We also made some rosary beads due to October being the month of the Holy Rosary and we have been using them to help us to pray in class.
