This half term we have lots of fun learning planned out and we love to see any learning linked to this at home too! 



This half term we are focusing on a range of writing styles and grammatical features using the book ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ to support this. We are continuing to try and use a range of punctuation, sentence types and planning structures. In Year 5 we are working really hard on our handwriting, ensuring it is all cursive, and that we’re checking our spelling is the best it can be too.


Shared Reading

This half term we are looking at Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
