Year 5

Black History 


During the second half of the Summer term we will be looking at famous poets and their poetry. We hope to learn a few poems by heart, perform poetry and create our own amazing poems by using what we have learnt! 

Towards the end of the half term, we will be writing in a variety of different styles to evaluate what we have learnt this year and recap. 


Monday - Grammar/Reading comprehension  (to be submitted by Wednesday).

Wednesday – Maths (to be submitted by Friday).

Friday – Writing / Reading Activity (to be submitted by Monday).  


This half term we will be continuing to use ‘Inspire Maths’ to look at geometry. In particular, we will be learning everything you need to know about angles: acute, obtuse and reflex. By the end of this unit, we will be able to identify any missing angle and use a protractor with confidence. 



Extra Practise!

It would be fantastic if all children could regularly play educational games online. Here are some great sites to try:

BBC Science Challenges

BBC Grammar Challenges

BBC Maths Challenges


Grammar Skill Games

Top Marks Maths Games

ICT Games

Even more games!



In science we will be learning about Sound. 

We will be carrying out lots of investigative work this half term in order to learn about how sound travels and we might even compare it to how light travels! 

In addition to this, we will be carrying out as many experiments as possible so that our investigative skills are second to none! 

Our focus in RE this half term will be learning about Jesus.  We will think of him as a teacher and explore how he taught people. We will read the parables he talked about and the miracles he performed.

As part of PSHE we will be thinking about 'What if we knew how to eat ourselves healthy and happy?' This  theme will allow us to think about healthy lifestyles, exercise and how we can improve our physical, emotional and mental health. 


 Learning Logs

Due on Monday 10th June

Your child received a 'learning log'  just before the holidays.  The tasks in the 'learning log' are due to be completed in time for the new theme so that your children come into school ready to delve into a new theme with a good basic knowledge already!
