Year 5


Welcome to Year 5.

One of the most exciting things about Year 5 is that our new classroom is upstairs which is super exciting because we now have lockers!

Moving upstairs signifies that we are now one of the eldest year groups within the school and that carries a great deal of responsibility; the children realise that they are now role models to the younger years in school.

Our first topic is ‘Journey to outer Space’ where we will be creating our own narrative for an imaginary planet, as well as learning about the planets in our solar system!

Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. Remember to practise together at home and keep them in your head throughout the whole year! We will focus on the common exception words that all children need to have access to, as well as the various spelling rules.

In PE this year we will be thinking about ways in which we can keep fit, various sports games, dance and gymnastics and these lessons will take place on a Monday and Tuesday. As we may be outside, please make sure that your child has the correct P.E. kit in school; please refer to the PE policy for further details.

Homework will be given out on a Thursday and handed in by the following Tuesday. The homework given out is there to aid the children with their learning from that week and it is important that they do complete their work.

I am looking forward to having a fantastic year together!

Kind Regards,


Miss Smith.
