Year 5 Parent information September 2020




Make sure you keep checking the website and make sure you’re signed up to Class Dojo for more class updates. 


Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely Easter break.




In English this half term we will be reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis.




English this year will hopefully give you a chance to be really creative and have a lot of fun, and I am going to really focus on trying to build up your confidence so you feel ready for Year 6. 




In Maths this half term we will be looking at fractions, decimals and percentages and how to convert between them. We will be covering the Year 5 curriculum but I will also be recapping and reminding you of the basics and earlier years’ work so please don’t be worried if you’ve struggled over lockdown or even before! 



  • Space! - I've been looking forward to this one since the start of the year.



  • The Industrial Revolution
  • The Victorian Age



  • New Zealand
  • The Local Area



  • Chinese Art
  • Print and Print Making


Don’t worry if you struggle with Art – I do too! Vincent van Gogh was told that he wasn’t any good and now he’s remembered as one of the greatest painters ever so maybe you will be too! 



  • The Greatest Shows

  • Easter
  • Pentecost
