Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Autumn term



This term we will be learning lots of new and exciting things as well as catching up with some of the topics that were not covered fully last year.


These are the Come and See topics for this term:

  • Ourselves
  • Life Choices
  • Hope


In English, we are learning to write explanations. This will link to our Science work and the short Wallace and Gromit animated clips.


Our White Rose Maths topics for the term are

Place Value; Addition and Subtraction and Statistics.


We will cover the Science topics Sound; Solids, Liquids and Gases and Electricity.


For History, we will begin by completing our Invaders and Settlers (Anglo-Saxons and Vikings) topics from last year.


Our class will be swimming every Wednesday until Christmas. Children will need a cap, towel, and swimwear (one piece swimming costume for girls and fitted trunks for boys). No jewellery is allowed so please take out any earrings before school on swim days. Outdoor P.E. is every Friday so please make sure your child has a full P.E. kit in school on that day.



Please listen to your child reading a few pages from their home reading book every night. Children should complete 2 lessons on Reading Eggspress each week at home.

Please help your child to learn the spelling lists. This will really help them with their writing in school. Your child can also use Spelling Shed at home to help them to master these spellings. 

Maths homework will be set on My Maths. Your child can also use Maths Shed to improve their speed at recalling the times tables and number bonds.
