Letter writing to Mrs Hoyle

Anna Head (a.head) on: Year 5 Blog

Over the last week we have been learning about writing a persuasive letter. In the coming week we will be writing this letter and sending it to Mrs Hoyle in order to persuade her not to cancel Christmas for Year 5 at Gildersome Primary.

The children have come up with some fantastic ideas and very convincing arguments and we are sure that we will be able to convince Mrs Hoyle and save Christmas for Year 5!

Keep up the good work, Year 5!

Current topics

Anna Head (a.head) on: Year 5 Blog

In maths we have recently been studying statistics and this has included line graphs, tables and timetables. In the coming weeks we will be moving onto our next topic of multiplication and division.

In literacy we have been focusing on narrative writing, in particular story endings, but we will soon be moving onto letter writing.

Our other topics will remain the same until after the Christmas break and these will be published on the blog in the new year.

Please can we remind you that children should be practising their weekly spellings at home (these are written in their planner each Monday), reading to an adult as often as possible and practising their times tables also. Thank you for your continued support with this.

Many thanks

Miss Spencer & Mrs Handley.

Our next topic after half term will be the Mayans. We would like you to conduct some research of your own over the half term into this topic. You may present your findings in any way you wish, this could be a poster, model, drawing, painting, fact file, non-chronological report… the possibilities are endless!

We hope you have a lovely half term. Stay safe.
