Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Mr O'Connell, Miss Dix and Mrs Calderwood

Welcome to Autumn Term 1 in Year 5!


This term our topic is Earth and Space. We will be looking at the Earth, the Moon and the Sun in Science lessons which will link to our work in other curriculum areas. In English, we will be writing information texts and autobiographies about space and astronauts. Our maths lessons will be focused around the place value of numbers and the four types of calculation (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).


PE this term will be on a Tuesday afternoon taught by Mr O'Connell. House T-shirts will be provided but children will require suitable PE kits including footwear for indoors and outdoors.


English homework will be given out on a Monday and due back on the Wednesday. Maths homework will be given out on a Wednesday and due back on the Friday.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to Mr O'Connell, Miss Dix or Mrs Calderwood. We are always around before and after school for you to drop in!
