Mr Newsham (Y5)



Welcome back 5N!

Over the coming half term, Year 5 will be focusing on the Tudor dynasty, they will look at the Monarchs from Henry VII all the way to Elizabeth 1 and how our country changed under their power.


Our class novel is ‘I am Malala’ which is a memoir about an extraordinary girl who stood up for what she believed in and fought for equality.

In maths, children will focus on fractions, decimals and percentages. They will solve problems involved in everyday life including money, weight and capacity. In science, children will focus on life cycles of plants and animals and the similarities and differences between them.

It will be a very busy but equally enjoyable half term for the children and I am sure that they will rise to the challenges set before them.



Remember, to make sure you complete your homework on time, read at least five times every week, arrive in the correct PE kit and have an attendance of 96% or above to be in our ‘In It To Win It’!
