Year Five




Welcome to the Autumn term 2019!

I hope you all had a great summer holiday!

I have attached information about year five which you and your child will find useful. Please take a look!  We will also share information about things we have done and are doing on this page as well as photographs of us in action. Make sure you check back regularly to see what we have been up to.


Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term  –  Ancient Greece

Spring Term  –  Amazing Americas

Summer Term  –  Creeping Coasts


Children should be reading every day and their diaries signed and returned to school. The class with the highest percentage of readers is rewarded each week.


Homework will be given out on Wednesday to be brought back in on Monday to consolidate and supplement work undertaken in class. Your child has a homework book to complete their work in. New spellings will be given out every Friday and the children will be tested the following Friday. It is also important that your child learns their times tables up to 12 x 12 by heart – they will have regular tests to check on their progress.


P.E. lessons will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has the correct colour t-shirt for their team.

Guided Reading

In Guided Reading we will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling. We will be reading the story and discussing characters and events as well as using the story in literacy for our writing.

Please discuss the story with your child and ask them questions to help their understanding and comprehension.
