Autumn Term


Key Information


PE this term will take place on Monday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Swimming will take place on Mondays (After Christmas).

In Autumn 1 our topics for this term are ‘Coasts’ (Geography) and Properties of Materials (Science. In Autumn 2 our topics are Rivers (Geography) and Earth and Space (Science).  In English we will be carrying out work linked to these topics.

Please consult our Autumn 2018 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 



This term we are looking forward to a trip to the residential to Aylmerton Field Study Centre. We are so lucky to have such an exciting trip so early in the year. We are especially looking forward to exploring the beach and spotting seals. 


Home Learning


Year 5 homework expectations are as follows:


Maths - Please refer to the Year 5 Home Learning sheet.


Reading - Your child will be in a ‘Book Talk’ reading group in which they will discuss our daily focuses and feedback to their class teacher for daily points! Their ‘Book Talk’ books will remain at school but they are welcome to bring in an independent reading book to read. 

Spellings - Our weekly spelling lesson takes place on a Friday.  During this lesson the children will be tested on the words that they were given to learn the previous week and given new spellings to take home and learn.
