Welcome back Year 5!

Year 5 Day 8:30 - 2:45       

Spring 2 2021

Welcome to the Year 5 class page. We are so happy to be able to welcome you all back on the 8th March! You have all been missed and we can't wait to get back into the classroom and learn all together again!

EnglishWe will be linking our English work to our new topic - Rivers. We will be focussing on non-fiction writing. We will be learning to collect information, plan and write reports and check our work. 

Reading - It is so important that you read everyday. We encourage you this term to read plenty of non-fiction including biographies to help guide your writing this term.

Maths - When we return, we will be reviewing the areas which were learned during the lockdown: area, perimeter and fractions.

Science - We will be focussing on the life and achievements of Stephen Hawking.

Topic and D+T - We will be learning all about rivers. We will be looking at how they form, their importance and famous rivers.

Computing - Coding

P.E (with Coach Nick) is every Monday, so don't forget to bring the correct kit, ready for this day. This is a white T-Shirt, black shorts and a pair of black pumps. It would be ideal if this kit was clearly labelled and kept securely in a labelled P.E. bag, so that any misplaced items can be returned quickly. Have a pair of track pants and something warmer available as we will be outside as often as possible.


Reading will be the children's main activity that is expected outside of the classroom. If the right book is found, this should not seem like hard work! Weekly spellings will be provided and Purple Mash will host extra weekly activities which will be marked and discussed online with the children. Of course, any additional research or work is richly encouraged and will only benefit your child's progress throughout the year.
