Year 5

We hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are looking forward to your last term in Year 5. You all worked so hard at the end of last term and we hope you are ready for new challenges.


Our topic in school this term is Stone Age to Iron Age. The subject areas we will be covering are; Art and History. We will be learning about the changes in Britain during this Britain including the importance of Stonehenge and Skara Brae.


In Guided Reading we will be continuing to read The Girl Who Stole an Elephant, and then we will move onto Wolf Brother which is set in the Stone Age. Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with? In our English lessons, we will be writing in a range of genres that will interest the reader as well as having a focus on using grammar accurately. Our English texts will include classics such as The Highway Man and Macbeth.

In Maths we will be continuing with our learning about decimals and moving on to geometry. Each week we will have an arithmetic test so you can see how you are improving. 


Your homework continues to be the same as last term; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings.


Below are the PE days for each class. You must come to school wearing the correct PE uniform.

Emerald – Tuesday and Wednesday

Jade – Tuesday and Wednesday

Teal – Wednesday and Thursday


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