Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


We have an exciting year ahead in Year 5. Our first topic for the year will be World War II. We will be finding out the reasons the war started and identify countries involved in the war. We will learn about evacuees and what happened during the blitz. We will also find out more about rationing and comparing war time menus to our own weekly menu. We will continue to develop our English skills and we will be using the story ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ during writing and comprehension lessons. We will also make propaganda posters in art and Anderson shelters in DT.  



Children will have PE on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Children need to make sure they have a full PE kit in school on this day. Please make sure their PE kit has their name in it. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair should be tied back.




Reading Challenge:

The All Saints reading challenge is an opportunity for children to earn certificates for reading in school and at home. The more the children read, the more certificates they can receive. It is really important to encourage reading to be done as often as possible at home. Although the children do not have to read to an adult, an adult will need to sign their records to say they have seen them reading. Children will need to ensure their reading records are in school every day.



Spellings will be sent home each Monday and a spelling test will take place on the Friday. Practice should occur at home during the week to help pupils improve throughout their spelling sessions in school. 



Children have all been given individual login details to access Mathletics at home. They can use this to revise topics that have already been covered in maths or look at new topics they wish to build confidence with. Children should aim to get 1000 points each week. They will then get a certificate the following week.
