Year 5 - Ennis and Simmonds

Autumn Term 2021

In Year 5 we plan a range of experiences and opportunities, including some involving the idea of apprenticeship, for the children to participate in throughout the school year.  Our aim is to develop their skills and understanding of the curriculum and the world they are in to help prepare them for the future.  


This term we will be working on place value objectives as well as looking at addition and subtraction methods and statistics.


In English we will be working on the texts, ‘Beowulf’ by Michael Morpurgo, ‘Stories of Beowulf’ by H.E. Marshall and ‘The Yes’ by S. Kitamura.

Class Read


In History, we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks. Our focus will be on Hinduism in RE.

PE Day

Year 5 will have PE on Monday and Wednesday.

PE kit needs to be worn on these days and jewellery must be removed.

The children will need to have trainers and a plain tracksuit for outdoor PE.  

Please ensure all uniform, including PE kit, is clearly labelled.
