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 Wednesday and will be taken by Mr. Hutson. Please ensure that your child has their kit. 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.


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 research will focus on Anglo-Saxons and/or Earth and Space. Children are encouraged to do research for this topic every week. They can choose if they wish to research both Science and History or just one. 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.
