Welcome to Year 5's class page. 

Year 5 are a hard-working, respectful and inquisitive class and we like to have some fun on the way! We are excited for our last half term before we move into Year 6!

This page will be updated every half term to keep you up-to-date with what we are learning. 

Look out for helpful websites that may help you to support your child's learning at home and our spellings for this half term. 


This half term, our writing unit will focus on writing an adventure story. We will be focussing on using relative clauses with the relative pronouns when, who, which, where, whose and that, using adverbs fo indicate possibility, using a wider range of devices to build cohesion across paragraphs and linking ideas using tense choices. We are excited to be reading a gorgeous books written by Paul Geraghty, called 'The Hunter'.

As mathematicians, we will be converting units of time and looking at timetables, exploring statistics including line graphs, tables and charts, 2D and 3D shapes including symmetry, measuring angles with a protractor, drawing angles and identifying angles at a point, and reflection and traslation. 


Please click on the documents to see the spelling lists for this half term. A copy has also been sent home.


As Scientists, we will be learning all about properties and changes of materials. We will: 

  • be able to compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties (including hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity and response to magnets).
  • Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be seperated.
  • Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and this kind of change is not usually reversible. 


Homework will be given out on a Monday to be completed and returned by Thursday. There will be an online Maths homework and a Grammar homework to be completed in your child's homework book. Your child will also have spellings and should aim to read at least 5x a week.
