Catholic Primary School

Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Class page,


Here you will find further information on what the children are currently learning in School. 


During the Spring term the children will be learning lots of new and exciting topics!


In English our main focus will surround Ancient Greek Myths as the children will read a plethora of stories from the past and they will also create and write their own Greek myth. Literature such as: The Orchard Book of Greek Myths, Helping Hercules, and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief will support their learning. In Maths, we will build on the children's learning from the Autumn term and deepen their understanding on place value, times tables, division facts, square, composite and prime numbers. New topics in Maths include shape and measure. In Science, our topics will be Separating mixtures and Types of change. Within RE, our topics are 'Mission' and 'Memorial Sacrifice.' Our History and Geography foci will be based on the Ancient Greeks. Within Design and Technology, the children will learn how to make bread. In ICT lessons, we will be learning about physical computing and Flat-file databases. Our PSHE focus will be based on Dreams and Goals and Healthy me. 


If you have any questions or enquiries please don't hesitate to ask me on the door at the end of the day.
