Junior School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


During the summer term, in our topic, we will be learning all about how we can be Global Citizens. We will be learning about the challenges Earth faces including climate change, deforestation and limited world’s resources. We will also be learning about our carbon footprints and fair trade.



In English, our class novel will be Cogheart by Peter Bunzl. It is a fantastic adventure story which will ensure the children are swept away by airships and flabbergasted by dastardly plots in this extraordinary and wildly imaginative book bursting with invention and adventure. We will be using the text to develop our reading and writing skills. We will delve into the book by exploring characters, making predictions and drawing inferences. We will be writing in role of characters, writing letters and creating our own fantasy stories.



In Maths, we will be understanding decimals up to 3 decimal places and then making connections between fractions, decimals and percentages. We will then move onto understanding of properties of shape, angles, reflection and translation. We will be ending our maths topics on converting measurements and understanding volume.



We are also looking forward to Well-being Wednesdays and using the outdoors to develop our key skills in Maths, English and Topic.


This term, homework will be set on a Monday. We will set spelling homework on Seesaw and the children can post their homework to seesaw. Maths will be maths homework books and will be marked in school on a Monday.


We are looking forward to working with you this term.


Mr Mears and Miss Tuck
