Welcome to Year Five


Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children will need to arrive in their PE kit on this day.  Year 5 will also attend swimming on Tuesdays and therefore will need to bring their swimming bag on this day.


We are learning to play the Ukulele on a Thursday morning which is a fantastic opportunity. Please ensure you have your Ukulele on this day.



Homework will be set on Teams on a Friday and is due in the following Friday, therefore a week to complete. There will be a Maths and SPaG task and sometimes an extra with links to MyMaths, SpellingShed and TTRockstars. Please encourage children to complete their homework as it will support their learning in the classroom.
Don’t forget to read at home too.

Autumn 1

We have many exciting things planned for you to enjoy including some interesting topics to learn about and some fun activities to enjoy.

Our topics this year include Ancient Greece where we will be learning about achievements made during this period in history. We will start by looking at where Ancient Greece fits onto a timeline before digging deeper into life during that time. We also have an art topic planned looking at building our sketchbook skills, specifically feather drawing.

In our Maths lessons, we are continuing with our Power Maths books and we will be starting by recapping some learning from Year 4 before moving onto number and place value. Our English lessons will be focused on reading and revisiting and practicing SPaG skills. We will also be working towards writing our own Greek myths a bit later into the half term.

This year, we will have swimming on a Tuesday morning, therefore you need to bring your swimming bag on this day. We also have PE on a Tuesday afternoon and enrichment on a Thursday so please arrive in your PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Year 5 are learning to play the Ukulele on a Thursday morning too!

I am looking forward to developing our learning as a class and enjoying our time together. Myself and Miss Dransfield will be there to support you each day and we will do our best to create a happy and engaged classroom.

I hope that you enjoy your first half term as Year 5!
