Year 5 Curriculum Summer 1



This half term we will be looking at adverts, persuasive texts and play scripts.

During handwriting we will assessing our handwriting and working on our own individual targets.

If you would like your child to have handwriting practice sheets for home please ask.


We will be looking at strategies to work out mental calculations quickly. We will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes, adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions, area and measure.

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 the Ancient Greeks.


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

We have launched our 10 at 10 challenge.

Books have been bought especially for year 5 and their challenge is to read all of them by the end of year 5.


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


This half term our topic is ‘Where am I?’. 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.


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.
