Welcome to Year 5 


We are studying ‘Wolf Brother’ which links in with our new topic about the Stone Age. This topic gives us great opportunity to study geography and also use our imaginations to think about the prehistoric world.

As always each day the children will be expected to complete a ‘extended writing’ task. This work helps the children to improve their speed of writing as well as their content. This term we will be particularly working on presentation.  


We will be building on from last terms work and extending the children this term. We will start by focusing on shape and also be thinking about fractions, decimals and per cent. This can be a tricky subject for children and they will need to keep focused!


In science we will be looking at Flowering plants which include the life cycle and looking at seed dispersal.


Similarly to last term we will continue to have our P.E. lesson at Southfields School with a specialist P.E. teacher. This has been a great opportunity for the children to learn new sport skills.

Swimming will be starting in the new term and a letter will go out to remind parents.

General Comments

Homework will continue to be given out on Friday and needs to be returned by Tuesday.

Please continue to read with your child every night as it really supports them with their school work. Children who read regularly make better progress in their work through-out the year.
