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 the Amazon Rainforest (Summer 1) and Ancient Greece (Summer 2).

In English, we will be writing narratives, poems and descriptions of the Amazon Rainforest, including the wide range of species that live there.

In Maths, we have started learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We will be improving our mental calculation skills next and exploring fractions after that.

In Science, we will explore the properties of materials. We will be experimenting to find reversible and irreversible changes.


P.E. will be on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings. 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 spelling. These 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
