Term Overview

Below is a link to the termly overview for this term (Term 6).

Termly Overview (Term 6)


For English this term, we’ll be focusing on an explanation text and a wishing story. Additionally, we’ll be focussing on the following SPaG features:

(1) Tenses

(2) Cohesive Devices

(3) Speech

(4) Brackets, Commas and Hyphens

(5) Verbs


During this term, children will be learning about: reflection; plotting points on a graph, and volume and capacity.


Every week, someone in each class will receive a TT Rockstar trophy, so make sure you’re practising your timetables skills!

A reminder to all parents and carers: please encourage your children to use the TTRockstar App as much as possible; just 10 minutes a day can have an impact on their times table knowledge. If there are any problems with the app or you have misplaced a log-in, please let your class teacher know! Maybe this term your child’s class will win the cup!

RRS Year 5 – All of Year 5 have signed class charters at the beginning of the year to agree on how our rights will be respected by pupils and adults throughout the school.
