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

Non Uniform Day Friday 16th February

Next Friday 16th February we are going to have a non-uniform day. It is traditional for children to bring a donation for the privilege of not wearing uniform. The donations will be for a pupil who has recently undergone surgery to cure his epilepsy, to give to either the Epilepsy Charity, Ronald McDonald House or the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. We would suggest that the children wear something red as he is a keen Arsenal fan.
