Welcome to our Year 5 page! 


Our topic for the Summer term is 'The Victorians'. Click here for the Curriculum Map. 

We will be exploring who the Victorians were, the life of children during this period and the impact of new inventions on day to day life.


This term, children have been provided with a range of tasks, linked to Victorians, to complete for homework. Click here to see what they will be up to.



We have been busy reading The Railway Children by E . Nesbit. 

Also, we are exploring explanation texts and are writing a piece titled 'How a steam engine works'.



We are 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 are currently working on the unit; properties of shape. 

Within the unit, children will be drawing given angles and measuring them in degrees with a protractor. Children will also learn how to use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles. In addition, children will be identifying 3D shapes and looking at nets.
