Welcome to Year 5
We hope that you will join us on our exciting learning journey this year and enjoy our updates.
Year 5 is an amazing year at Christ Church Academy. We face the challenge of preparing for our SAT exams in Year 6 and building the foundation for a transition to secondary school
We approach all of these challenges with a positive ’CAN DO ‘attitude and see all our hard work rewarded at the end of the year.
Please support us by reading with your child every night, practising their passport maths skills and undertaking homework tasks.
Read your child’s report card and ask them about ‘being green’ and ensure they have their PE kit.
Come into school and visit, we will be holding parent/student art activities this year

We will study measures this term. We will focus on time, mass, capacity, length and area. We will use this knowledge to solve problems involving measures.
