Year 5

First of all we want to welcome you all back after a well deserved half term break. You have all done a fabulous job in Autumn 1 and we hope to see more of the same positivity and motivation this half term. We have lots to look forward to, including an exciting DT project where we will be making a moving solar system! We are also going to be taking park and leading lots of scientific experiments based around forces this half term!

PE Information

This year, your child will be doing PE on a Monday and Friday. Ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available for both days and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home (at least 4 or more times))
  • TT Rockstars (30 minutes)
  • Spelling via Spelling Shed (30 minutes)


Our Autumn term theme is based around the science topic of space -entitled “Out of This World”. The main focus will be on our universe and the different planets that are involved in this! We are also going to be introducing forces this half term!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the year 5 team.
