St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to Year 5  

Teacher: Mrs Hill

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Guyatt

Saint Roch pray for us.

Below are the end of strand mathematical assessments that have been completed. It could be useful for you to discuss these at home. Often I have found when marking them it is not the math skill used incorrectly, but understanding the question that is our downfall. Discussing different ways one question could be presented is greatly beneficial.


 Spellings: queue, recognise, recommend, relevant, restaurant, rhyme, rhythm, sacrifice, secretary, shoulder.

Mathematics: As a school we are having a greater focus on multiplication and division. 

Please ensure times table pages are fully completed and signed by an adult.
