Year Five




Welcome to the Spring term 2020!

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. Please make sure your child has the correct colour t-shirt for their team.

Guided Reading

In Guided Reading we will be reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. 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.


Big Write

Every Friday children will produce an extended piece of writing in their best presentation including everything they have been learning about, together with grammar and genres, in their daily English lessons. Big Write homework will be sent home on a Monday so that children can prepare notes to help their writing on Friday. Please encourage children to make as many notes and ideas that they can and ensure they bring them in to school on Fridays. It will really help their writing if preparation is done at home.
