Year Five






Welcome to the Autumn term 2018!

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 Thursday and the children will be tested the following Thursday. It is also important that your child learns their times tables up to 12 x 12 by heart – they will have a times tables speed test every Thursday to measure their progress.


P.E. lessons will take place on Monday and Tuesday.

Trip Dates:

We will be going to Hanley Museum on Tuesday 13th November to learn all about the lives of the Ancient Greeks. We will also have the opportunity to make our own Greek pots!


As you can see the children have all had a fabulous start to year 5 and are already working really hard. Well done!
