Welcome back, we hope you have had an enjoyable summer and are ready to embrace being in Year 5! Over the next six weeks, Year Five will be following a unit of work called ‘Space Scientists’ which focuses on how our understanding of space came about and the space race.

This half term we will explore a range of writing genres such as biographies and poems that use word play. We will also revisit and build on our understanding of writing playscrips and narratives, including the various writing devices used within these genres. We will be finishing our reading of ‘Boy in the Tower’, which we have greatly enjoyed and move on to a new text called ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell.


This half term we are completing our Statistics unit and moving onto Shape, Position and Direction. Within these topics we will learn about angles and lengths within shapes, coordinates and how to read and plot them and translating shapes.

History and Geography

During Summer 1, Year Five will be starting a unit of work called ‘The Holiday Show’ which is mainly a geography topic examining out responsibilities as a tourist and the impact that our choice of holiday and travel destination can have on the human and physical environment.
