Year 5 – Autumn 2


Dear Parents/Careers,

Welcome to Autumn 2! I hope you all had a lovely half term. Below I have attached an overview of this term’s curriculum.



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

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


We will be learning about division, multiplication, area and time.

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 Earth and Space. We will be looking at the different planets, phases of the moon and famous astronauts.


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 Wednesday to be completed by the following Wednesday.

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


This half term our topic is ‘Earth and Space’. 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.

Tuesday Drop In’s

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


Wednesday homework/research

Every Wednesday, the children will have the opportunity to come into class during their lunch break to complete their homework and/or some research. I will be in the class with them to offer support as well as the use of the school laptops.


Thank you, Miss Thom.
