Year 5

Autumn Term - Welcome to Year 5!


Who will be teaching me in Year 5?

‘The 5 Team’ are Mr. Crone, assisted by Miss Dunn. At various points throughout the year, the class will also be educated by our specialist sports and dance coaches, as well as forest school and music teachers. Mrs. Hullard and Mr. Choudry will teach the class during my designated planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA).


What work will I do in year 5?

As well as daily English and Maths lessons, children will enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum, covering: Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art & Design, PE, Languages (Spanish), Music, Design Technology, PSHE and RE.


This half term, our topic is Outer Space – sadly, this will not include a school trip on Virgin Galactic or SpaceX but we will endeavour to make the subject fun and engaging nonetheless! Alongside the Science objectives, much of the topic work will be cross curricular, in subjects such as English, guided reading and art.


In Geography, we will be coming back down to Earth to study our home planet - including time zones, looking at land use, and how people affect the environment.


Homework: children will have a piece of Maths and English homework set each week, as well as weekly spellings and times tables. Typically, homework tasks should take around 20 minutes to complete and will be due the following day. If children are struggling with a piece of homework, please encourage them to ask us for support. Children should also be reading every night – this may be from their banded reading or library book - they can change these themselves in school.


We will also hear the children read regularly and monitor their comprehension skills, along with their fluency. As you’re aware, educational websites (including Times Tables Rock Stars) can also have a positive impact on your child’s education. If you need logins, please contact us on ClassDojo.


What will I need?

Children are expected to come to lessons prepared and “ready to learn” - the school will provide all basic equipment, such as rulers, highlighters, pens & pencils. Water bottles are also advised as research shows that drinking water helps concentration as well as general health. You can purchase a school water bottle via Eduspot. 


This half term’s PE will be on Wednesdays (tag rugby) and Thursdays (dance). However, I advise that PE kits should be in school at all times, with a suggestion that, if necessary, they are taken home for washing on Fridays and returned to school each Monday. PE kit consists of black shorts, plain white t-shirt and black pumps (trainers are acceptable for outdoor sports). As usual, jewellery must not be worn during PE sessions. If children wear stud earrings however, they must be taped over.


Please ensure that children have their name written on or sewn into any personal belongings, including their lunchbox (if applicable), coat, PE kit and uniform. We expect children to look after their belongings and keep the cloakroom area tidy.


What else do I need to know?

We will be continuing to use Class Dojo as a way of celebrating the children’s successes, good behaviour choices and also as a communication tool.


Now that your child is in year 5, with signed permission, they can walk home alone. Please ask if you require a form to confirm this.



We hope you enjoy your time in year 5!
