This Tuesday was officially the first day of spring! We welcomed spring with a special treat – Year 5 enjoyed watching the Young Shakespeare Company perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. In fact, the children were not only audience members but fellow actors! They were absolutely brilliant and the whole event was thoroughly enjoyable. In Maths we have learnt several methods for division and can use them confidently. In Geography, we have learnt about human features of coasts and how to prevent coastal erosion using sea defences. We have also been working on a personal narrative using Running on Empty as inspiration. We have particularly been focussed on using a range of tenses.
- Read the next two chapters of Running on Empty – download here. GR text for home learning
- Practise the Year 3 and 4 spelling list ready for a test next week. We are expecting 100%! SpellingWordList_Y3-4
- Maths – try a maths challenge and revise the division and multiplication methods we have covered. The last few weeks of activity sheets can be downloaded here: Maths lesson 1 and lesson 2 Week 4 W5 lessons 1 and 2
In English we will be completing our personal narratives inspired by Running on Empty. Maths is a recap and end of unit assessment on fractions, multiplication and division. We will be doing TastEd on Friday morning. We will also be doing a case study of Hunstanton and the challenges it faces as well as the natural features that can be found there.
Tuesday 28th March – Festival of Voices.
Come to school as usual in your school uniform. They will be transported to the venue and will need to bring a healthy packed tea (no nuts) and a water bottle. They will be collected from the venue at 7.15pm.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Family Friday on Friday 31st at 1pm to share the children’s learning this term. You will be able to then collect your child and take them straight home after this. The school will be closed at 1.30pm.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
The Year 5 team.
