If that wasn’t enough, we will be learning how to write and respond to letters of complaint and holding a class wide debate based on controversial issues. Do Year 5 have what is takes to argue their points eloquently and respectfully?

Maths this half term will see us using and applying the number skills we have been working hard to develop throughout Year 5 so far in a range of exciting contexts.We will be revisiting number and place value in order to prepare ourselves for Year 6!  The summer holidays are fast approaching. Are you secure in your times tables, addition, subtraction and division?

In Science this half term, we will be immersing ourselves in science investigations! We will use the knowledge that we have gained across the year to conduct scientific experiments and record our findings.
