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! 

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 myths with a focus on creating characters and settings. Whilst learning about what a myth is, we will be exploring lots of new vocabulary and applying these to our own myths. Grammar and Punctuation skills will focus on continuing to learn about: expanded noun phrases, relative clauses, linking ideas across paragraphs and using commas to clarify. We are very excited to be reading 'Authur and The Golden Rope' to support our writing.
