Summer Term 1
We are looking at the famous Route 66 this term and working on our Geography skills. Can you read a map and locate famous places? Can you accurately place features onto your own map? What is the difference between physical and human features? How can humans impact on the physical features of a place?
In Science, we will be turning our attention to conservation. What can we do to help and protect our environment? We will be finding out about the conservationist John Muir. How can we be like him?
In Maths, we will be looking at other areas of the curriculum while keeping our number skills sharp. Keep practising for those times tables badges!
Sample questions: 7 x 6 = ____ ____ x 4 = 32 63 ÷ 9 = ____ ____ ÷ 3 = 12
Olympians, you can practise for the mastery test. You will need to use your tables facts to work out larger facts and decimal number facts.

In English, we will be writing letters home in the role of a WW2 evacuee. This follows on from our WW2 topic. Hopefully you will be using what you have learned within your writing!
In R.E., we will be looking at women in the Bible. Who was Esther? Who was Ruth? What did they do and why should we remember them?
Please see the parent planner for further information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me or the school to arrange a meeting.
Useful information about Year 5
In Year 5, our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday. We do ask that you leave your P.E. kits in school and we will ensure that they are sent home each half-term to be washed. This term your child should bring their outdoor kit on Tuesday and Thursday.
In Year 5 you will be expected to:
- Read every day (the more the better!)
- Learn your weekly spellings and over the year learn the Year 5 word list. Spelling tests will be on Wednesdays.
- Practise your multiplication and division facts daily until you have got all four badges. Then aim for the mastery badge!
- Complete another piece of homework each week. This will be given on Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday or earlier.
Our reading books will be changed on Monday. Read another book from home or the library if you finish your book before this.
In Key Stage 2 the children are responsible for buying their own tuck at break time. The price is 20p. Children can also bring their own healthy snack from home (no chocolate please!).
