Year 5


We have had a fantastic start to year 5 learning about Ancient Greece. Scroll down to see what we've been up to so far!

Our new theme for the spring term across the school will be journeys. Our topic for this will be Space. To get things started, children have been set some optional topic homework where they are encouraged to create something artistic. For example, a model of a rocket, a painting of the planets or a sketch of an astronaut. We look forward to seeing your creations!


Children are expected to read aloud to an adult a minimum of 3 times a week at home. Each read should be recorded in the reading record provided. In year five, children are learning to engage in discussion after reading and we are aiming to read for longer periods of time. 

Please build up the length of time that children are reading by adding two or three minutes onto the length of their read each week. Ideally, one session of reading should last for at least fifteen minutes to allow children to build up their stamina.

Homework is sent home on a Friday and will be due the following Friday. This will usually consist of maths and spelling homework. Optional topic homework will also be set over holidays.

Thank you for your continuous support,

The Year 5 Team



 Well done Year 5!
