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 Summer term.

This initial half term, there will be a Space and Geography theme, My Place in Space, which will be a focus throughout. In English, we will be learning about astronauts and what qualities a good astronaut should have. We will then write a letter of application to become an astronaut. 

Maths objectives will continue to be linked to White Rose using the Power Maths scheme as a suppliment, concentrating on place value and number up to 1,000,000. We will focus and use various concrete, pictorial and written methods to consolidate our understanding and recognise the relationship between each operation.  

In Science we will complete investigations and research linked to Space. In this topic, we will learn about the 8 planets and what makes them special. They will learn about the phases of the moon and also develop a better understanding of day and night. 

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

In Year Five...

Geologists will have their PE lesson and forest school on a Wednesday.

Pilots will have their PE lesson and forest school on a Thursday.

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


Thank you,

Year 5 Team
