Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


This half term, our topic is called Pharaohs! We are really excited to be starting this unit with a special visitor who is going to be talking to us all about the Ancient Egyptians. We will get hands-on opportunities that we wouldn't get in a museum and will be looking at all sorts of interesting Egyptian artefacts!

As well as this, we will be writing Defeat the Monster stories in English and learning all about the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. In Maths, we will be looking at shape, measurement and roman numerals.


Key Information




  • Children are expected to be reading for at least 10 minutes every night. This should be signed off in your child's planner to show us the hard work they have been putting in at home!



  • Times Tables are now set online twice every week using Times Tables Rockstars.
  • The sessions run from Friday to Tuesday and Tuesday To Friday. Children must complete 20 rounds in studio each time.
  • This is an essential part of the children's homework and must be completed. Children are welcome to use ICT club and lunchtimes to do so.
  • Children have all been sent home with a MyMaths login - homework on here will be set every Friday for the following Friday. 


CGP books

  • Pages relating to the children's learning will be sent out at the start term.


  • Any work done at home can be signed off in your child's planner as we love to see the hard work that they are putting in at home! You can do this simply by jotting a quick note and signing this



  • Spellings for Summer 1 will be sent home with your child on Monday 16th April. Please ensure that your child is practising these, ready to be tested on a Thursday. 



  • Planners should be brought into school everyday - these are a method of communication between yourself and your child's class teacher. They can also be used to write down when your child has been reading or doing homework with you.
  • If your child has been working on something incredibly hard at home, we would also like to know so that this can be acknowledged and praised at school!


Times Tables

  • In Year 5 we are following the Rock Star Times Tables scheme. Please ensure that your child is continuing to practise these.
  • Times Tables are a vital skill and one of the foundations of all our other Maths work. It is important that children are able to answer mixed times tables questions quickly and fluently. Practising at home by reciting them aloud and by quick fire questioning is incredibly helpful.


PE Kit

  • Our PE time is a Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your children bring in
    appropriate school coloured PE kit (Blue or Red).
