Year 5 Curriculum Map

September 2017

 Holly Class have come back ready and enthusiastic to continue their learning. We have begun our topic on The Victorians with a trip to Horton Kirby - photos to follow.


Homework will come home on Friday 22nd September. 

Children need to continue practising their spellings, reading and their times tables.


For their group spelling children need to know how to spell their words and also be sure of their meaning and be able to use them correctly in sentences. The spellings are taken from the Year 5 spellings that they should know this year.

Multiplication tables

Children need to master  times tables and all help at home is appreciated. Children need to know all times table facts in all times tables from 0 to 12; not just know the answers in sequence.

6x7 = 42

But also:

7x6 = 42

42÷6 = 7



 Every child is expected to read at home at least three times during the week; they need to keep a record of their reading in their reading journal which should be in school daily.

Gardening will begin this term, can you make sure that your child has a warm jumper or fleece in school for when they are gardening.

Look out next term for offers of help clearing the outside area. We are hoping to have a grand tidy up.


Outdoor P.E. takes place on a Wednesday afternoon. Full PE kit is needed please

Thank you for your support with your child’s learning.
