Year 5

Hello and welcome to Otters! Our teacher is Miss Pyman and our teaching assistant is Mrs Currey.
Our classroom is a bright, well-resourced place and learning is always fun!

We enjoy English and Maths every day. Most of our subjects are taught through an exciting
thematic approach. This year our topics are: Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, Marvellous Maps, Tudors,
Magnificent Mountains, Victorians, and Enough for Everyone.

Some of our subjects are taught by specialist staff including, Music, French, Art, Design Technology
and PSCHE. We have two weekly PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays, so please make sure the
children come to school dressed in their PE kit on these days.

Our homework consists of weekly spellings, Maths Whizz and TTRockstars. There is also a reading
challenge and topic tasks which can be completed over a half term. We are also encouraged to read
with an adult at least four times a week at home.

Below you will find some planning documents so that you can see what we will be taught and our
‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.
