Dear Parents/Careers,

Welcome to the Autumn Term! 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 adverts, explanations and fables.

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


We will be learning about place value, written methods for +, -, x and ÷ 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.


Our topic this half term is called Extreme Earth. We will be looking at volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding.


P.E lessons will take place on Thursdays and Fridays and will be taken by Mr. Hutson and myself. Please ensure that your child has their kit on both days.



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.

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


This half term our topic is ‘Extreme Earth’. Children are encouraged to do research for this topic every week. Research books will be collected in every Thursday and will be handed back on a Friday.

Thursday Drop In’s

Every Thursday afternoon we are welcoming parents and carers into the classroom for 10 minutes to allow you to look at your child’s work. 

Thank you

Miss Thom.
