Year 5 English

Summer Term

Writing themes

In English, the children will read and write their own myths based on ancient Greek myths. This links to our history topic. They will also turn some of these myths into a play script to act our wearing their Greek masks. We will look at the genre of discussion and take part in formal debates


Children are expected to read daily and at least three times a week to an adult. They are also expected to record the reading they have completed in their new ‘Log Book’.  Merits and certificates are awarded for frequent reading and a wide range of reading will help improve vocabulary and the quality of writing. Children will take home an ‘Accelerated Reader’ book which is matched to their reading ability. They will also have a book of their choice. Children are expected to have both books with them at school. During reading sessions in school children will take online quizzes to test their understanding of their ‘Accelerated Reader’ book. Look out for Year 5 reading challenges later in the term!



The whole school follows the Read, Write, Inc., Spelling programme.  Children may bring home spellings in their log book, which they can then practise during the week or they may have other spelling tasks to complete as homework
