Welcome to Year 5! 

Welcome back to the final part of our Autumn term! We are very busy in year 5 on the lead up to Christmas. We have plenty of exciting things planned.

Thank you to children (and parents!) for all the hard work and effort that was put into the Earth and Space project homework over half term! They are all amazing!

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

Like before half term, we will be learning our brass instruments on Thursday afternoons at 2.30. Please make sure that you have your instrument in school!! I would recommend that you all take home your instruments each week and practice as much as you can. I am learning the trumpet too and have found that even playing for 5 minutes whenever I can has really helped me to improve. Practice makes perfect!

This term we will be having our PE sessions on Wednesday mornings and Friday afternoons.


I send out a maths homework each week (relating to what is being taught in class that week). These are given out every Friday and due back on the following Wednesday.

The spelling/grammar homework will be each week also, with our spelling test on a Friday.

All of the spelling test words for the second half term are now stuck in your purple homework book and also uploaded below.

Mental Arithmetic

As a class, we all need to work on our mental arithmetic and building up speed and fluency. 

There are some websites that you can access from home which will help a lot in speeding up our recall of basic number facts and timestables.

These are: - The daily 10 - Hit the Button - Multiplication game


Project Homework

Twice each half term I will set a project-based homework, which will usually be a topic-based task with a literacy focus.

We are currently looking at Forces in Science. 

This half term we are learning all about Ancient Greece in History.

There is a project homework sheet in your purple homework book and also uploaded to the class page below.

This project is due on Friday 1st December.
