Our Theme This Term Is:

This term we will be trying to answer our BIG question "Does every picture tell a story?"


We will be studying the artwork of artists such as Banksy and questioning the stories behind his famous pieces. Our creativity won't stop there as we will also be designing and making our own moon buggies.


Space will be another theme for Year 5 this term. In English we will use the book 'Where Once We Stood' to write narratives about the moon landings. It is a lovely book if you would to read more of it at home.


In Science we will also continue to learn about space. Finding out more about the solar system and the differences between the planets. We will also learn about night and day and the phases of the moon.


In PE we will be learning how to improve our athletics skills and will be extremely lucky to have sports coaches from Stoke City FC show us how to do this in our PE lessons. PE is on a Tuesday.


Homework will be set on a Friday and is to be handed in the following Friday.  You will find the homework on the 'homework' link on this class page. Weekly homework will be:

  • Reading at least 3 times a week
  • My Maths
  • or a reading comprehension (set on alternate weeks)

Optional homework will also be TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed.


We will be assessing the children's reading in the first week back. The children will then bring a reading book home which they will also need to bring to school each day.  Please continue to record your child's regular reading in their diary. Reading regularly at home makes a HUGE difference and we very much appreciate your support with this.


We can't wait to get started on our topic this term and are sure the children will feel the same.
