Your child’s journey through Year 5
Autumn Term Home Learning
We understand that there may be times where you need to isolate at home. In order to help you keep learning, we have created a home-learning plan for the Autumn term.

Maths Home Learning
This term’s learning is on number, addition, subtraction and multiplication. To support this learning at home, we have attached White Rose activity sheets and the associated video. Listen and watch the video before you complete the activity. There’s no need for a printer, you can copy out the questions onto a sheet of paper.

We have also attached links to additional challenges that support the Year 5 maths curriculum. The challenges are designed to support children in revising skills, while deepening and strengthening maths skills to a mastery level.
Some questions may require a lot of trial and improvement. It may not be right first time. That’s ok. It is important to keep trying!

The knowledge organiser is a set of key facts that we hope your child will learn and be able to remember. Please see details for this term’s science topic here: Year 5 – Autumn Knowledge Organiser
Autumn Term 2020
Our topic this term is Loving London, which begins with a historical focus, taking a look at what life in Londinium was like and the major events that happened during Roman rule. The topic then jumps after the half term to a look at modern London, in all its splendour, with a geographical focus on the wider city and our local area. Throughout the term we will be looking at materials and their properties in Science and look forward to the investigations we will do. We’ve got lots of great learning planned.

Spring Term 2020
Our topic this term is all about Invaders and Settlers. The focus will be on the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. The children have already had an exciting visit from Eric the Viking and a chance to start exploring life during these periods. For the first half of the term, our Literacy learning will be based around ‘Viking Boy’ by Tony Bradman.
Please note: in Maths, our learning will focus on multiplication, division and fractions this half term. It is important that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with this. Our focus times tables for the half term are the 3 and 6 times table – please make every effort to be practising these up until half term. After half term, we will be working on the 9 and 7 times table up until Easter.
