Autumn Term

Topic: Rebels

We will be learning about courageous and rebellious women who have made history and changed the world.

Welcome back to the Autumn term

After an unusual 18 months we are looking foward to getting back to school and taking part in the ordinary routines we have been missing. Won't it be odd to have assembly in the hall again! As a new teacher to the school, I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone properly.

So what’s in store...

This term we will be focussing on revising our key skills from Year 4 and advancing onto our new Year 5 curriculum. 

In Geography you can look forward to learning all about North America, is it more than just the USA? 

In Science we will learn all about growing up and growing old. In how many ways have you already changed since you were a baby?

In Maths we will cover a range of topics including place value, addition and subtraction, statistics as well as area and perimeter.

In English we will be reading Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg. You will need to decide whether you think Annie was a brave daredevil or a fool-hardy attention seeker. To compliment this book, our reading lessons will focus on Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. Find out all about the girl power which has changed our world!

At Elton we always endeavour to make learning as interesting and exciting as possible so I'm sure some visitors and trips will be on the cards!


As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts both at home and at school, this includes your child’s school reading book and their own personal reading books. Whilst lots of our children will, by now, be reading independently, it is still vitally important that you listen to your child read. We expect children to be reading daily, but a minimum of 3 times a week. Please make sure that you are listening to your child read and recording this in their reading record. Children can record their own reading in their record, but an adult needs to sign this to confirm that they have read. Whilst records should be sent in daily, I will take reading records in on Tuesdays and Fridays to check home reading, so please ensure that records are definitely sent in on these days. 


PE will  be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons this term (outdoors weather permitting/where ever possible)—so please make sure that you have the correct school PE kit in school. Trainers are only necessary for PE lessons/break times if needed, all other times, school shoes should be worn please.


Correct uniform should be worn at all times please. This is a school jumper/cardigan, or one in a similar colour,  a white polo neck top, grey skirt, shorts or trousers and black shoes (not trainers). For PE, this is a white top, white or black shorts and trainers or pumps. Jogging bottoms or leggings can be brought in for colder weather, but please try to make sure they are black or white. Please ensure all uniform and water bottles are named, and that water bottles are taken home and cleaned daily.


Learning Log homework and Maths will continue to be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday. Spellings will be given out in the first week back, and should be practised regularly.


We regularly update the school's Twitter feed with what our Year 5 class get up to. Please check out our tweets, follow us, and give us a like!


We look forward to seeing you all soon, any questions please ask.


Mis Allen, Mrs Baldwin
