Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 is an inspiring but busy year, packed full of new opportunities to excel both in and out of the classroom.

Below you will find a class handbook relating to life in Year 5

Class Handbook 2020/2021

We really love reading books that help us to explore different topics in all subjects and help us to build up our vocabulary. Throughout the year, we will study texts such as Phoenix by SF Said, plenty of Norse myths and Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky poem. Reading is a passion of mine and I hope to develop this love of reading in all of the Y5 pupils.

Maths is a healthy challenge in Year 5 - we rely heavily on our times tables to work through a lot of the Y5 maths curriculum - so plenty of practice on TT Rockstars is recommended.

This year, we will explore the world through our LUNAR topics, looking at Earth's different biomes; learning about The Vikings; Ancient Egypt and World War 2.

music and design technology are really important for us, as they allow us to explore our creative sides and develop new skills. As scientists, we enjoy finding out about other scientists and inventors and the impact they have had on the world we know today. Through the year, we will deepen our understanding of the Bible and how its principles can guide us in our daily lives helping to make us happier people.

PE is on Fridays. Always make sure you have your full PE kit in school as additional lessons may pop up across the half terms - kits will be sent home each half term to be washed. It is also very important that you have your school reading diary with you every day. Homework will be set on Thursdays which you will hand in the following Tuesday. This homework will either be a maths challenge, a reading comprehension, or a grammar and punctuation task. You must practise times tables and your spellings every week. Spelling tests will take place on Wednesday . Each term pupils will be asked to complete an independent project linked to the theme which you will work on at home over four or five weeks.


Below you will find links to the topics we will cover during the term along with our class timetable:
