Year 5




Welcome to the class page for Year 5.

Mrs Griffin – Teaching Assistant                     Miss Merritt – Class teacher

This term we will be learning about Our Solar System (Spring 1) and Inventors and Inventions (Spring 2).

In English, we will be reading and writing a range of non-fiction text types, space-themed narratives and sound poems.

In Maths, we have started learning about angles. We will be exploring shape next and finding out about time after that. We are also daily improving our mental calculation skills.

In Science, we are investigating the rotation and orbit of the Earth and other planets in our Solar System.


We have P.E. on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a white t-shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear (pumps or trainers) in school ready for these lessons.


Your child will have 3 pieces of homework per week: reading, maths and spellings. These are given out on Fridays and are due on Thursdays.

In order for your child to make the best possible progress, please ensure that your child reads daily.

Please visit the school blog to keep up to date on what we have been doing.

Thank you for all your support,

Miss Merritt
