Autumn 1

Welcome Chestnut to your year 5 Autumn one page.  Hopefully you will find all the information you need about this half terms learning.  If you have any other questions, please feel free to come up to us and ask.


We can't wait for the year ahead.

Every week your child will be taking home one or two (depending on the size)new reading book/s based on their reading level. Please ensure they bring this book back every Monday (if it needs changing) to enable us to change it swiftly and in line with our Covid-19 policies. We will endeavour to give your child a new book by Wednesday at the very latest.



Homework will be set on Thursday.  It should be handed in by Wednesday in order for an adult to mark it that day.  


Topic - A new task will be set via Purple Mash, which is linked to our learning, every other week.

Times Tables rockstars - Please log on whenever you can.  Every little helps.

Spelling - Every week, children will be given some age-related spellings/phonics to practice at home via Purple Mash.

Maths - Every week, children will receive a maths task via Purple Mash. Where possible, this will be open-ended and will link to in-school learning.



Year 5’s PE is Tuesday. On Tuesdays, please ensure your child comes to school in their school PE kit. They will remain in their PE kit all day. (Don’t forget their water bottles).
