Welcome to our page for Year 5 children!


Our teachers are: Miss. Payne and Mr. Street


Autumn 2 2021

In Year 5 we are developing our understanding of ‘Ancient Greece’ by studying a new book called ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.’ It is a book that many of you may know well and we look forward to writing a recount and a non-chronological report based on it over the next few weeks.

In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division. We will explore factors and square numbers as well as learning the written methods for multiplication and division. Science will prvide ample opportunities for our children to continue exploring Earth and Space, with a particular focus this half term on how our place in the solar system affects night and day.

In a few weeks, we will come to a conclusion on our study of ‘Ancient Greece’ and the legacy the Greeks left behind. As the topic comes to a close, we will be focusing on modern day Greece, making comparisons between the two. We are also very much looking forward to our Greek Day from ‘History Off the Page’ on the 16th November – more details to follow very soon! In RE, our Christianity topic will continue by looking at our question ‘Who do people say Jesus is?’ We will tackle this question through various mediums of art, allowing us to explore stories and representations of Jesus. We cannot wait to continue working with you throughout this term!

Autumn 1 2021

In Year 5 this half term, we are looking at ‘Ancient Greece’. We will be reading the hilarious book ‘Who Let the Gods Out’ by Maz Evans. From this, we will be writing our very own mythical story as well as a piece of persuasive writing. In Maths, we will be focusing on the value of numbers and will explore the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) using numbers up to 1 million. Our Science will see the children explore Earth and Space and we will learn about why we get day and night and what planets are in our solar system. We will even get to learn about how the famous Stonehenge used to be so important in astronomy. To go with our ‘Ancient Greece’ theme, we will be studying their time as great rulers, their society build up as well as making a modern take on an Ancient Greek vase.

In RE, we will focus on Christianity and how the teachings of Jesus are still applied across the faith and to those who do not follow it. PSHE will see us explore our ‘beginning and belonging’ unit where we will discuss how we fit in and how we can help our friends when they need us.
