Year 5 Topic Web Spring 2

Welcome to YEAR 5!

Hello, I am Mrs FitzGibbon and I am now teaching your child in Year 5. Our teaching assistants will continue to be Mrs Evans in the morning and Miss Logan in the afternoon.

Each week we have a ‘table of the week’. This award goes to the table who have worked their hardest and shown excellent behaviour throughout the week. The winning table chooses a prize from our class treasure chest.

English – We will be reading ‘The Man Who Walked Between the Towers’. This book will be the basis for persuasive letter writing, script writing, acting, debating and story writing.

Spellings – Each week children are given a set of spellings. They will be tested every Tuesday.

Maths – This term we are focussing on fractions and will involve;

  • Mixed and improper fractions
  • Adding and subtracting fractions
  • Fractions of amounts
  • Multiplying by integers
  • Sequencing fractions

Times tables will also be a priority this term.


  • All homework is given out on Tuesday and must be handed in by the following morning
  • Each week one piece of English and Maths will be set. Occasionally a separate piece of times table practice will be given.
  • Children should also be reading independently at least once a week at home


  • E. days are Thursday(outdoor) and Friday (indoor)
  • All children need a P.E. kit, including either pumps or trainers

If you have any questions or problems, please come and see me any afternoon after school.
