Welcome to Year 5


Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to the Autumn Term! Mrs Parsons and I are looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child achieves their full 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.


We will be learning about Earth and Space during our science lessons this half term. We will be looking at the planets in our solar system, the movements of the Earth and the phases of the moon.


Our topic this half term is the Anglo-Saxons. We will be looking at who they were, where they came from and the impact they had on Britain.


The year 5 P.E lesson will take place on Thursday and will be taken by Mr. Hutson. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school. The children will also be participating in the Daily Mile.




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


Times tables are important in year 5. Pupils are expected to know all their times tables fluently. Please continue to practice them at home.



Normally, we have an open door policy to parents but unfortunately this is not possible at the present time. However, we want to be available to share news about your child or to discuss any concerns or issues that you may have. If you do wish to speak to staff, please ring the school office and we can arrange a time for either a phone meeting or a face to face meeting.

Although the start of this school year has been different, we would like to say thank you to all of you for your cooperation throughout the start of this school year. Please remember no fabric bags or lunchboxes in school.


Thank you, Miss Thom.
