Year 5 Homepage

Welcome to all our new Year 5 pupils- we look forward to a happy and successful year!

 This term our topic is ‘Climb Every Mountain’. We will be looking at the geography of mountains and linking with Art, DT and Music.

In Maths, we will begin with a focus on place value and then move on to addition and subtraction methods. This will be followed by a block on statistics.

In English lessons this term, we will be starting with writing descriptions and stories based on our class text, ‘Fly, Eagle, Fly!’ Later in the term, we will be writing letters home from a mountaineer’s perspective.

 Our focus this term, in Science, will mainly revolve around forces and their place in the environment.

You can support your child at home by reading with them at least three times weekly, encouraging them to complete the weekly writing task in reading journals, and helping them to practise any spellings and other tasks set.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

PE/ Swimming:

 5BK will begin their ten week swimming block at Summerfields pool- commencing on Friday 13th September.

 Both 5JM and 5SW will have PE every Monday afternoon. Full kit will be needed at all times as other sporting opportunities often arise during the week.
