Welcome back to the last half term of Year 5!

I have been really impressed with all your hard work so far this year, so keep it up! 🙂

We have got a busy term coming up, so I hope you’re ready!

Our focus text this half term is ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’, a book by Louis Sachar about a boy called Bradley who doesn’t like school and has no friends. The school bring in a counselor and the book explores Bradley’s development through his meetings with her. It is a very interesting, but also a bit weird, book! I think you’ll love it!

In Maths we will start learning some skills ready for Year 6 as well as recapping lots of Year 5 work. We will carry on doing our weekly arithmetic tests, so please remember to practice addition, subtraction, division and multiplication strategies.
