Year 5 Autumn 1 2018

Welcome back to school and to Year 5! I hope you all had a lovely summer.

Spellings will be given on a Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. The children will have a sheet to practise them on each night.

PE will be on a Thursday – please ensure a full kit is in school.


In English we will be studying a book called The Song from Somewhere Else by A.F. Harold. Through this the children will complete drama activities, perform poetry, write descriptions and predictions as well as exploring other genres and grammar techniques.


We have begun this half term with a look at place value. This has included Roman Numerals and looking at numbers up to 1 million. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction.


Our topic for this half term is Earthlings. The children will learn about the Earth, sun and moon, other planets in our solar system and all things extra-terrestrial! Mr Crosier and I are currently looking into booking a trip linked to this topic – watch this ‘space’!
