How to…

This week we have been learning about 4 and 6-digit grid references. In geography, we used maps to write grid references for places and found places using grid references given to us. We used this knowledge to create instructions about how to read them. Our writing included time and prepositional phrases, adverbs and some of us even included relative clauses and semi-colons in a list.


In maths, we’ve been developing our knowledge about prime and composite numbers. We also learnt about how to tell if a large number was a multiple of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10.


Three homework tasks were sent today and is due back on Wednesday 7th November.



After half term, we will be sending home spellings weekly. Spellings (which are based on rules), will be matched to your child’s spelling ability. Each week, a set will be sent home then tested a week later. When they are ready, your child will move on to the next stage. Year 5 spelling rules will continue to be taught in class across the week. If you have any worries or questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher.


Have a great half-term break.
