Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 5 and Team Saffron!

Your Classteacher is Ms Dyer.

Your Teaching Assistant is Mrs Buck.



This week in maths we have been learning how to multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 and in English we finished writing our own end of the story The Boy in the Tower. We will be continuing to read the end of the book to find out how it does actually end. We then began to look at the features of newspaper reports.

Next week in maths we will be looking at using the inverse of number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in order to solve problems. In English we will continue to look at the features of newspaper reports and prepare to write our own report about a discovery of Anglo-Saxon artefacts.
