Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Home learning update


Hi Everyone. I hope everyone is well following our school closure. Over the coming weeks the class page will be used to give ideas about what can be done at home to try and keep us learning in the best way possible. Some children, of essential key workers, will still be in school but the majority will be at home.


Everyone should have a learning pack which should keep them busy until the Easter holidays. Please don't do it all in one day, as some will try! On the maths booklet it refers to various pages. Please ignore this and just attempt the actual questions themselves.  Mr Richards has also created a  new tab on the website entitled 'Home School Learning' which we will update with various online activites for children to do. You should all also have an e-mail address which you can e-mail in any photos or questions which you may have. We will hopefully get this up and running during the week.


One thing you could all do at home, starting on Monday, is to login to Youtube and participate in the Joe Wicks online PE lesson.  (It starts at 9am) It should be a great, healthy way to start the day.


Parents/Carers - We appreciate that the majority of you are not educators and so all we ask is that you do your best and enjoy spending some rather unexpected extra time with your children. This page will be updated regularly once we have organised the provision for the children who are still required to come in.

Stay healthy!

Mr Tomkinson

Legends - We read our legends to Year 3. They said they really enjoyed reading them.

Research Homework. We have done some great research homework this term on our various topics.

Spring 1


The focus of this term will be linked to finding out more about World War 2. In Religion the children will be about 'Mission', 'Memorial Sacrifice' and 'Sacrifice' .

In English, the children will be reading the text ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ and will be writing a narrative about the war, looking at poetry and writing diaries and information texts.

In Maths, we will be investigating negative numbers, becoming more confident in solving multiplication and division problems and finding out about translations. 

In History, we will be finding out about the Blitz, including the impact of the war on the local area.

We start our first Art topic of the term, looking at Henry Moore and his depictions of the war.


Spring 2 -Inventors


This half term our new focus in English will be linked to the text ' The Invention of Hugo Cabret'. We will be creating a story based around the text and a magazine page based around articles.


In Religion we will be looking at memories and looking at other religions. We will also be preparing our liturgy during holy week where we will perform the first seven stations of the cross. 


In History, we will be looking at how transport has changed over time and we will be making our own toys in our Design and Technology unit.

In Computing we will be creating our own blogs. 

In P.E. we will be continuing with our Swimming lessons and starting our Orienteering unit.
