'We aim to inspire today's children to embrace tomorrow's challenges.'

Gilthill Primary School

Year 5


Welcome to Year 5


There are lots of exciting topics in Year 5; a list of these is posted on this website every term.  The topic plan is useful information, as some parents like to tie in day trips, books for birthdays/Christmas and documentaries on TV etc.

This is what we are learning about this term.



Every week children are expected to read at home, learn their spellings and practise their times tables and number bonds. Additional homework will also be set and this may vary from week to week. Spare copies of the sheets handed out will always be available in school for collection from the classroom letters tray




Please ensure that your child always has a full PE kit in school. You never know when an opportunity may arise for a little extra e.g. Sports Relief, sponsored charity events etc
