Year 5 2017 - 2018

Mrs Bailey Sharam

Welcome to Year 5

Dear Parents/Careers,

Welcome to the second half of Autumn Term! Miss Collins and I am looking forward to working with you to ensure that your children achieve their highest potential. Below I have attached an overview of this term’s curriculum.



This half term we will be looking at poetry, formal letters and humorous stories.

During handwriting practice, we will be finding ways that allow us to write quicker.


We will be learning about different types of numbers, written methods for +, -, x and ÷ , fractions, area, angles and problem solving.

By year 5, pupils are expected to know all their timetables. If you would like your child to do extra practice I have sheets that they may take home.


We will be learning about Space, Earth and forces. 


P.E lessons will take place on Friday mornings and will be taken by Mr. Huston. Please ensure that your child has their kit.



Your child will be expected to read every day and to record what they have read in their planner. Their planners will be checked daily.


Maths homework will be given out on a Monday to be completed by Friday. If your child is really struggling, I will be holding a year 5 homework club on a Thursday dinner.

Times tables are important in year 5. Pupils are expected to know all their times tables fluently.


This half term our topic is ‘Space and Earth’. Research should be done on this topic every week. Research books will be collected in every Thursday and will be handed back on a Friday.

Thursday work share

Every Thursday afternoon we are welcoming parents and carers into the classroom for 10 minutes to allow pupils to share their work with you.

Walking Home

In year 5, some pupils do start to walk home on their own. If you wish your child to do so, please could you write a note giving your permission.
