Welcome to Year 5!

Year 5 Autumn Term Overview

Autumn Term

Welcome to Year 5! I’m looking forward to seeing you all again and I have planned some really exciting things for you to do this term that will involve lots of creativity and fun! I am really looking forward to working with you all this year – what a brilliant and exciting year it will be!


‘Victorian Ventures!’

Our vehicle this year is centred around our art unit studying Lowry. We are going to visit The Lowry and explore the exhibition and take part in a workshop to inspire us to create our very own art exhibition at school, where we will be displaying our masterpieces which will be available to sell at the Christmas fair.



Every child will be given a reading book from our reading scheme. It is imperative that children read at home as it stimulates imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Children should read for 30 minutes each night and have their reading records signed. Children change their reading books when necessary and we ensure we hear them read at school and monitor their reading carefully on a one-to-one basis and during their guided reading sessions.



We have two PE lessons per week. One lesson will cover a Fundamentals PE lesson, working on the core skills such as agility and ball skills that can be applied to a variety of sports, whereas the other lesson will be more game based. This term we will be exploring Invasion Games (netball).


 PE sessions will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so please make sure children have their PE kit in school on these days, making sure every item is clearly labelled.



Please remind children to bring in a named water bottle each day. Homework will be set on a regular basis and it will be handed out on Wednesdays and it will be expected in on Mondays. It will consist of a mixture of written and computer based work. Each child will be given a list of logins in their Reading Diary so they can have access to a variety of brilliant APPs that will support and consolidate their learning. Please encourage your child to use these as much as possible.


Further Information

Please make sure that all items of clothing and any lunch boxes/drinks bottles are clearly labelled as it does help immensely when we try to return items to their owners. As it is still warm, please ensure that children have a water bottle in school with them every day.


I am really looking forward to meeting your children and really getting to know them. They were an amazing class on the transition day and I am so excited to be teaching them this year.
