Welcome to class 9. In year 5 we will be working very hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and targets and to prepare ourselves for an important year next year!  Each morning we will start with maths based activities such as times tables practice, problem solving and group maths followed by English and Maths lessons. Afternoons will begin with Reading Plus followed by topic lessons.


Our PE day is Thursday. PE for Autumn will be basketball and cricket. Remember to bring in your PE kit at the beginning of each week and it must be taken home weekly to be washed. All earrings need to be covered or taken out for PE lessons.


Our Autumn term topics are:

  • History: Victorians
  • Science: Earth and Space and Properties and changes of materials
  • RE: What is the 5th Pillar of Islam? and What are the themes of Christmas?
  • Geography: Europe
  • ART: Leonardo Da Vinci
  • D&T: Sewing
  • Music: Charanga (Harvest songs and Christmas production)
  • PSHE: Class charter, Gifts and talents, Exploring feelings, Communication skills, Role models, Types of friendships, Managing conflict and anger, Cyber-bullying and Responding to an emergency
  • French: Moi et mon ecole.


Homework is given out on Thursdays and usually consists of a mymaths task or times tables rockstars and weekly spellings. It must be returned no later than the following Tuesday. On occasion, children may also bring any unfinished work home to complete.


Children are asked to bring reading books into school every day. Children who bring in reading books everyday will have more opportunities to read in school and change their books. We also ask that as parents, you encourage daily reading at home with your children. Lunchtime clubs and weekly helpers will also be organised to provide extra reading opportunities and to encourage a positive attitude towards reading

Coffee morning

A massive thank you to parents, staff and children for attending our fundraising coffee morning! It was a great success and the money raised will go towards our DT sewing project.
