Year 5 Cirriculum Letter Term 2

Year 5 Cirriculum Letter Term 3

Term 2

During term 2, Year 5 have been studying World War 2 and how it affected everyday life. We have been looking at women at war, rations, all countries involved, propaganda, timelines and more.

The school trip to Dover Castle was a huge success and enjoyed by all. A huge well done to all pupils on their impeccable behaviour. We are very proud of you


As a year group, we have been reading the story of Felix, a Jewish boy, trying to find his parents during WW2. The children have enjoyed every page of ‘Once’ ( the title of the book) and have used their knowledge and understanding of the text to produce different styles of writing.

We have been looking at Earth and Space during our Science lessons and enjoyed a visit from the Astronomy Roadshow.


We have been looking at multiplication, area and perimeter, as well as reinforcing previous knowledge, like times tables, number bonds and rounding. The children have continued to enjoy Mathletics and have found a new love for TT Rock Stars. Please continue to enjoy this new programme at home.

Term 1


Year 5 have enjoyed a fantastic start to the year.  In English we have been focussing on Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo, where we have produced some powerful descriptive writing, journalistic articles and poetry.

Warhorse also ties in with our topic for the term of World War One.  We have worked hard to produce war inspired trenches and artwork.  This topic has inspired Year 5 this term with their book corner creations.

All Year 5 classes have done extremely well in Mathletics.  Huge congratulations to Tourmaline class who have achieved the highest amount of certificates across the whole school.  They previously ranked 17th in the world league table!
