Learning in Year 5

Immersive Learning

At our school, we learn many subjects under one umbrella; we call this ‘Immersive Learning’ as the children are fully immersed in a particular topic or theme for a term and become experts in that area of the curriculum. Each term we will add the medium term overview for the new topic which can be found below. These topics will form the majority of our lessons, combining literacy, science, art, DT, history and geography. It really helps your child build their knowledge and understanding if you can support their learning at home by, for example, taking them to a museum or finding a non-fiction book in the library linked to each term’s topic.

Physical Education

Please come into school dressed in your PE kit on the day you have PE and wear trainers on your
running days.


School library books need to be quarantined after being brought back into school, so we are asking
that they all come in on the same day (Monday).

If your child needs to change their reading book:

  • please make a note to that effect in their reading journal so that we know they have finished
    the book.
  • encourage them to write a short response to what they have read in their journal too.
  • bring in the book on Monday along with the journal.
  • take a new book home on Wednesday.

Children will be tested on their spellings every Thursday.

Homework & Spellings

Your homework and spellings for this term can be found on Google Classroom. Children each have their own login and should be able to complete and hand in their work online, following the instructions set by the teacher. If you have any trouble accessing the work online, please speak to the class teacher.
