Term Two

Some parents have asked for extra work for their children to help with their maths.  On the right hand side of this page, under Maths websites, there are some links to useful websites that will give your child extra practise with maths. - select Year 5 worksheets, select any option to download and print - select Year 5, scroll down to Year 5 Maths Resources.  We suggest the children pick topics that they have covered so far before working on the others - Any but especially 'Problem Solving' - scroll down and select problem solving, choose a subject eg word and real life problems and then choose anything with a blue 5 and either DOC/PDF/PUB/WORD at the end of the line.

This week we have been learning to interpret line graphs.  On Wednesday we wrote stories to match the data on the graph.

Term One

Year 5 had a really exciting day yesterday: all the children experienced making Victoria Sandwiches.

Each group had a bowl and weighed out all the ingredients themselves.  Some children also had a go at cracking the eggs into the mixture!

Later in the day, everyone made buttercream icing.

After the cakes had been cooked and were cool the children put jam and buttercream in the middle of the sponges. 

We all got to taste our wonderful creation. Mmmmmmm! Mouth-wateringly delicious!  Everyone got to take a piece home too: sorry if yours didn’t make it home!



Soluble or Non-Soluble?

We collected a variety of materials in transparent beakers. Then we added the same amount of cold water to each, stirred and watched to see if the material dissolved.

  • Sand = Non-soluble
  • Brown sugar = soluble
  • Salt = soluble
  • Coffee granules = soluble
  • Flour = soluble
  • Porridge Oats = non-soluble

All of Year 5 have been engaged in their maths learning this morning.  They had to work out the cost of each potion for Harry.


Today we had some questions to answer from the text Oliver Twist.

We used the method P.E.E.  (have a look at the link under Home Learning, Comprehension using PEE). 

The children cut up the questions and matched the answers using each category; Point, Experience and Explain and stuck them in their books.

We have been practising joined handwriting.  Two new joins for the children are:   ‘f ‘  and ‘x’.

Have a look at the picture to see how they are written.

 This week we have looked at all the punctuation we know and reminded ourselves of their uses.

 As you can see from our Maths Working Wall we have been busy consolidating our Year 4 knowledge in place value. 

This year we will be working with 7 digit numbers.

M,    Hundred Thousand,   Ten Thousands,    Thousands.       Hundreds, Tens, Ones.

7,           3                                    4                          6                    9                 2       8         

 or…….   7,346,928   

or…… 7 million, 3 hundred and 46 thousand, 9 hundred and 28!
