Welcome to our Year 5 page! 


Our topic for the Spring term is the 'World of Water.' Click here for the Curriculum Map. 

We will be exploring where water comes from and goes to - it's never ending journey!

We will also look at river features and extreme weather case studies from around the world.


This term, for homework, children are completing an extended project on a weather of their choice. For more information, click here.



Our first text type this term is Non-Chronological Reports. Children are busy researching information about some of the world's most famous rivers in order to create a report of their own. 


We will be continuing with spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) work linked to GIMME 5. This includes punctuation, conjunctions, adverbials, different types of sentences and added description. Children are encouraged to think about these elements in each piece of writing they do across the curriculum.



We have completed the number and place value and addition and subtraction unit. 

We are now working on multiplication and division.

Within the unit, children will be multiplying and dividing mentally using their known facts and developing their compact written methods. Linked to this, children will also be exploring multiples and factors (whole numbers that divide exactly into other whole numbers) and develop their understanding of prime, square and cube numbers. I have provided a copy of key concepts and success criteria for the unit.
