Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 page

Our Topic this term is all about Earth and Space!


We will be looking into the science behind how we have day and night, the seasons and all the different parts of our Solar System! 

Here is our knowledge organiser for this term so you can see what we will be learning: 


Children at St Andrew's are expected to do a small amount of homework each week. This is to help improve their learning in and outside the classroom. The homework is: 


  • Minimum of 10 minutes reading 4-5 times a week. This must be signed by an adult in their school planner. 
  • Minimum of 10 minutes of TT Rockstars or Stick and split on a device. 
  • Practise their weekly spellings which are in their school planner each evening until their test on a Friday. 


Thank you. 

General reminders:

Please make sure your child brings a coat to school everyday as we try to go outside as much as possible for break and lunchtimes as well as for PE Lessons. 


All equipment that the children will need will be provided by the school, children do not need to bring anything of their own into school. (Pencil cases etc.) 


You will have noticed the children have new school planners. These have lots of information in for you and your children so please have a look through them and use when needed. Please also remind your child to bring their planner to school everyday as we will be using them regularly in the classroom. 


PE days in Year 5:

5D - Tuesday and Thursday 

5GP - Wednesday and Thursday

5K - Thursday and Friday 

Children are to come into to school in their PE kits on their PE days. They may require a plain dark sweatshirt/hoodie and some sport tracksuit bottoms or leggings that are plain or as close to plain as you can get, to keep them warm during the day. Please no slogan jumpers or leggings, as an element of still being smart, although they are in PE kit, in school. No wearing tights with PE kits (unless running tights). No jewellery. They will be outside as much as possible. Thank you.
