We test times tables throughout the week. 

Our daily homework is to read to an adult at home and practise our times tables and spellings in order to ensure we make the best possible progress during our time in Year 5.

We encourage children to access TTRockstars to help them learn their times tables. We also run weekly TTRockstars sessions in school so all children can access the technology.

  • Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation of the globe
  • The plague of 1665

Our terrific Tudor topic launch involved: looking at a range of weaponry and discussing the forces behind the efficacy of different weapons in battle; how solutions can be changed from acid to alkali; safe laboratory practises; making ink and writing using quills and reeds; transmuting metals into gold; designing Tudor marchpane (marzipan) and making our own butter.
