Year 5

Welcome Back to Year Five!


Welcome back everyone to your new classrooms, new teachers and a new term.


Our first term in year five is going to be a busy one, we have so much to learn and so many exciting things planned.

Our topic this term is going to be 'Victorians'. The subject areas we will be covering are; Geography, Art and History. We will be studying life in Victorian times and focusing on architecture of buildings and homes. We will be looking at our local area and studying the human and physical geography of a region.

In Guided Reading we will be sharing the novel 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty, see if you can borrow a copy from your local library to read along with us. In our English lessons we will be looking at 'Legends' and writing from different points of view.

Maths lessons will be all about Place Value and then developing our skills with multiplication and division. Each week we will have a an arithmetic test so you can see how you are improving.

Your homework continues to be the same as last year, reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rock stars website and learning weekly spellings. Later on in the half term you will find out about some extra homework linked to our creative curriculum.

PE kits are expected to be brought in on a Monday and taken home on a Friday to be washed ready for the new week.

Hope you have all had a great summer holiday and are ready for the new term ahead.
