Welcome to Year Five

Mrs Farnworth, Mrs McGeough and Mrs Vaughan help the children in Year 5 with their learning.


This half term our topic - WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? - has a PSHE focus and we will be turning the spotlight on ourselves looking at where we all come from and what makes us special! We will celebrate our achievements and look forward to next year.

In English we will be reading Leon and the Place Between and writing our own narratives as well as persuasive letters and arguments about animals in captivity

In our Maths lessons we will be revising and consolidating our work this year on fractions, multiplication and division, area and perimeter, angles and 3d shapes.

 Our Science lessons will be linked to the World cup and we will be investigating how our bodies respond to exercise and whether temperature affects how a ball bounces.

In RE our theme is The Gospels

Our SEALs topic is Changes

We will be doing a lot of exciting Arts activities this half term. We are participating in the Arts Award scheme and have been busy preparing our booklets. Our first project was a painting in the style of Chris Cyprus. This half term we will be completing our projects based on our performance with the Halle and our Greek pottery. We will also be doing self portraits.

There will be a learning log challenge that will be set every Wednesday which should be returned to school the following Wednesday. 

As well as a learning log, we expect the children to do at least 15 minutes per week on IXL. 

All children also have a short Maths rapid recall challenge which needs to be practised at home. This will be sent home on Wednesdays or Thursdays and the children will be tested the following Tuesday.

Similarly, they will also have a weekly spelling test, which will be on a Monday. 

We also expect that the children will be spending time each day reading!

We will be checking the children’s homework diaries regularly so may we ask that you please initial all completed homework for your child.


Things to bring to school

Every day: PE kit, homework diary and reading book, homework folder
