Year 5 Autumn Term - 2017


Welcome to Year 5! 

This term our topic is Earth and Space! 

We will look at this topic through many different subjects. In English, we will be creating Planet non-chronological reports and space stories.  In Science, we will be studying space, planets, gravity, the moon and many other scientific areas. In DT, we will design and make rockets (hopefully you have received a text message about this already!). In Geography, we will be locating the continents, countries and looking at climate zones and biomes of the planet Earth! It should be a really exciting term!

In Maths, we will continue to work on our mental maths skills and will cover Numbers systems and Pattern Sniffing units. 

There will be more information given about other curriculum subjects in our curriculum newsletter and our Meet the Teacher evening.  


We have dates for Sailing during September and October. Children will go in groups of 9 per day, so we will send you a letter with the dates for your individual child's trips very soon. 

We hope that each group will get 3 turns, weather permitting! 

We intend to be back at school for the end of the day - traffic may impact on this - so please let us know if you have appointments booked in quickly so dates can be planned if necessary! 

Children need a change of clothes!! It is cold on the water, so warm layers, waterproof coats and sensible shoes/wellies are important.

Make sure you don't mind these clothes getting wet! 



Children will get a set of spelling words for the term. These can be kept at home. 

They will also get a weekly spelling homework sheet, once these are completed they can be sent back in as homework.

Spelling Tests will be on a WEDNESDAY.  



PE is held on Tuesdays (indoors) and Thursdays (outdoors). 

Please ensure children have kit in school.
