Our Class – Year 5


Hello and welcome to Year 5’s webpage!

Here, you will find information about our weekly timetable and what we are learning in each subject this term. To see what we have been getting up to in the classroom this week, please see our blog.

Autumn Term 2017 Curriculum

Literacy – Our first text this year will be “Danny the Champion of the World” (by Roald Dahl). Before Christmas, we will also study “The Highwayman” (by Alfred Noyes) and use film clips from “Avatar” as a stimulus for our writing.

Numeracy – We will first be consolidating our understanding of the mathematical concepts within the KS2 framework, ensuring that children are secure with their understanding of place value and the four operations. We with then move on to exploring measure and shape after the half term break.

Science – We have recently begun our topic on Earth and space (my personal favourite!) and this will run up until half term. After half term, we will study different materials and their properties which will give us lots of opportunities for practical experiments!

RE – We will first be learning about creation and then miracles in RE. Our Year 5 and 6 Class Mass is on Tuesday 26th September (parents and carers welcome).

PE –This term, our lessons will take place on a Monday (disc sports until half term, table tennis thereafter) and a Wednesday (dance until half term, orienteering thereafter). Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on these days. Please also make sure that they also have outdoor clothing (tracksuit/trainers) as we move into the winter months. Earrings are not permitted to be worn on PE days.


Don’t Forget!

Reading Records are due every Monday. This is when your Reading Premier League team will be awarded points based on how much you’v read over the week!

Your spelling and times table tests are every Friday. Make sure you remember to practise as much as you can!
