Our Place in Space



Welcome to Year 5.

We have attached below a more detailed Termly Overview, which will provide you with a list of topics and subjects taught in Year 5 throughout the first Autumn term.

We will have a scientific theme for this half term, with a focus on the Planets, Solar System and Space. In English, we will create our recounts and narratives using the theme of Space as a stimulus. We will also complete an application form when applying to join the European Space Agency (ESA).

Maths objectives will continue to be linked to White Rose, focusing firstly on place value, ordering and rounding numbers and then moving on to investigating both positive and negative numbers and Roman Numerals.

In Science we will complete investigations and research linked to the Earth, Sun and Moon. In this topic, we will review and expand our knowledge and understanding when describing the movement of the Earth around the sun in the solar system and also the movement of the moon relative to the Earth.

Please see the overview below to find out about learning in other areas of our Year 5 curriculum.

 In Year Five...

Please ensure all pupils have their PE kit in school for use. Trainers and/or plimsolls should be made available for indoor and outdoor sessions. 

Thank you,

Year 5 Team
