Our Y5 Theme, this half term will be 'Roots & Routes'

We are combining a Local History project with Local Geography. Y5 will start by learning about the physical and human geography of the United Kingdom and then delving closer to home by investigating the silk industry in Macclesfield and life now and then in our locality. We hope to get out and about, exploring and map following- identfying significant physical and human landmarks.

A trip is planned to the Paradise Silk Museum where we can discover more about the journey from silkworm to cloth with a opportunity to design and make our own silk pattern.

Our short story writing will feature the locality as its setting and we will be exploring different mechanisms in Desigh Technology.

Weekly Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday and handed in on the following Monday (reading, tables, spellings and maths)

Year 5 Pupils are also expected to use the e-learning sites TTRockstars, Spelling Shed & The Prodigy Game for independent learning practice.

Theme project homework will be set to last the half-term and will need to be brought into school the last week of that half-term. 


Full PE Kit, including trainers, must be in school every day.

Reading is extremely important, so all pupils will be expected to have a suitable reading book (with provided Reading Record) in school every day. 

All equipment is provided by school so leave your pens and pencils at home to use for quality homework!

Mrs Massey will be teaching Mondays, first session on Tuesday,  Wednesdays, Thursday morning & Friday.

Mrs Blackholly will be teaching Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons.
