Year 5

Hello and welcome to year 5!

We hope you have had a wonderful Easter break, and are feeling refreshed and ready for all of the exciting learning and activities we have planned for the Summer term.


This year we will be continuing with our Power Maths scheme, as well as having a huge focus on reading throughout the year across all core and foundation subjects. 


Some of our topics in foundation subjects for this term include Groundbreaking Greeks in History; Human Reproduction and Ageing in Science; Architecture in Design Technology and Mixed Media (Collage) in Art.


As part of our Religious Education, we will be looking at the festival of Pentecost and in French learning how to speak about the clothes.


In PE our topics for this first term are Athletics and Cricket (Summer 1) and Rounders and Tennis (Summer 2)

We will also be swimming in the week beginning the 20th May 2024 so please make sure your children bring a swimming costume, goggles (if they have them), a towel and sun cream.


Our PE days are:

Emerald – Tuesday and Friday

Jade – Wednesday and Friday



Don’t forget to make sure you wear the correct PE kit to school on your PE days.    

The PE kit is red school jumper, white polo shirt, black shorts or black jogging bottoms with trainers.


Homework Expectations

Our homework expectations will remain the same as they did in the final part of last year. Children will need to read at a minimum of three times per week, which will need to be recorded and signed by an adult in their reading record. They must practice their spellings in their spelling books before the dictation test on Friday and will need to ensure they reach their target for TTRS coins using Times Table Rockstars. All must be completed by a Friday, when by which the classes adults will check this has been completed. Children should also check for updates on Google Classroom and check out ActiveLearn for games posted linked to our Maths in class learning.


We hope you are looking forward to the Summer term as much as we are!
