Welcome to Year 5

Our curriculum news & blog

Our topics this year are as follows: Civil War, Anglo Saxons, Vikings, Mountains, Rivers, Earthquakes and Volcanoes. During these topics, the children will gain an understanding through research and visits about their local history and the world around them. Our Science topics this year are as follows: Space, Animals including Humans, Plants, Forces and Changing of Materials.

Uniform

We pride ourselves on our uniform. Children should all come to school wearing the school blazer, tie, black shoes, black trousers/skirt and a white shirt. P.E. kit should be brought into school on Monday and is taken home on Fridays. Children should have a P.E. top, shorts and trainers or plimsolls.

Home School Diaries

These are used to communicate between parents and teachers. Please note when your child has read and how they have done. We expect all Year 5 children to read as often as possible. The Year 5 team are always available and happy to discuss any queries you may have.

Homework

Spellings will be given out each week on a Monday and children will be tested on those words the following Monday. You will find your child’s spellings in their Home School Diary that they will stick in each week.

Maths homework will be set every Tuesday and will be expected back the following Tuesday. Page numbers that we wish the children to complete will be found in the children’s Home School Diaries. Children need to also complete three studio sessions on the TT Rockstar website.
