 INFORMATION ABOUT THE CURRICULUM IN YEAR 5

 

ASPIRE AND GROW TOGETHER TOPIC
We have got an exciting project to begin the year, which will combine our ASPIRE values with developing our school's community garden. Watch this space!!

 

MATHS
In Maths, we will be revisiting some topics and digging deeper to apply our knowledge of place value, number and formal written methods.


ENGLISH

We are keen to encourage children to explore the different types of texts and continue to develop our love of reading. We will be reading two different fiction texts over the first half term with a focus on new beginnings. We will also be looking at spellings in particular statutory words.

 

READING

These are checked regularly. Children must aim to read at least 5 times a week for at least 10 minutes. If reading on their own, we expect children to be writing in questions about the text or words they don't understand into their reading records.

 

PE

Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. On these days you will need to bring in your PE kit in a named carrier bag. You will then take it home to be washed over the weekend to avoid contamination.
Children are required to have both plimsolls and trainers in their PE bags. As the weather is turning cooler, please ensure that children have a jumper, which is not their school jumper, to wear outside.

This half term, in PE we will be playing tag rugby and orienteering!
