Year 5

Welcome back Year 5!


We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the term ahead.


We are starting the term by reminding ourselves about the importance of developing and using our Growth Mindset. Although this is important in our learning journey, it helps us with all aspects of life, as we use resilience, respect and tolerance. We will also focus on the core British Values, these are: democracy; rule of law; individual liberty and tolerance and respect. We will take an active part in a debate and understand how the British Values are part of our daily lives.


Our Creative Curriculum this term is Artists of the World which has a focus on Art and Geography. We will be learning about different sculptors and their work from all over the world. We are going to making our own sculptures from different materials and techniques, which we will learn about.


In English lessons we will be covering a range of genres including rap poetry, biography and persuasive texts. As a school, we will all be looking at the poem ‘The Spider and the Fly’ by Mary Howitt.


In Guided Reading we will be sharing the text, The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with?


In Maths we will be continuing to learn about multiplication and division as well as fractions. We will be continuing to have an arithmetic test each week to 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 Rock Stars website and learning weekly spellings.


PE will take place on the following days:


Emerald (Mrs Hastings): Tuesday and Wednesday

Teal (Miss Young): Wednesday and Thursday

Jade (Mrs Kaur and Miss Stacey): Wednesday and Friday


We hope that you are looking forward to this term.
