This half term we will be looking at stories in a familiar setting, arguments and performance poetry.

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 different ‘Earth Zones’.


P.E lessons will take place on 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.


Maths homework will be given out on a Monday to be completed by the following Friday. 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.
