Year 5 - Spring 2

RE – Reconciliation

Key Learning Objectives:

  • That our actions have consequences.
  • That Mary untangles knots of sin.
  • To know what sin is and what it means to be truly sorry for our sins
  • About God’s love and forgiveness
  • The importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation & know what happens during Reconciliation.


Science: Scream Machine (Forces)

In science we will:

Explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object; identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces and recognise that some mechanisms including levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.


In English, we will be learning writing stories about a tribesboy. We will also study The Journey by Francesca Sanna (a book about refugees).


Guided reading will take place on Wednesday for all groups. Home reading books and library books will be changed on a Thursday. We ask that, in year 5, children are reading for 20 minutes every night. This could be a novel, comic, newspaper or their school reading book.


In maths, our focus will be on:

  • Adding decimals
  • Subtracting decimals
  • Percentages
  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Converting measures



Spellings will be given on Thursday to be learnt for the following Wednesday. It is crucial your child learns their spellings as their ability to spell is a crucial aspect of effective written English




PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (yellow top, black shorts and pumps). Children can bring in an outdoor PE kit which consists of track suit bottoms, a top and trainers. Please note: They will ONLY be allowed to wear this if they are going outdoors so they MUST also have their indoor PE kit in school AT ALL TIMES.


Thank you for your help and support.
