Year 5

Class Teacher: Mr Wallace

Welcome to Squirrel Class!


I hope you are all keeping well whilst being at home. Please remember to continue using the online learning platforms set up using the below links. It is great to see so many of you using them for your learning where available.

Google Classroom:

Seneca Learning: https://

Diagnostic Questions:

The children will have their own log in details for Google Classroom and Seneca learning, which were given at school and were detailed in the letter sent home.

The children's work for the coming weeks will be placed on these platforms so please do let me know if you cannot access these platforms at home and the work can be emailed out instead.


The most important thing your child can continue to do whilst being at home is read, practise times tables and spellings given. This can be done on the online platforms or at home without the aid of a computer. 


 As a school we are here to support you and the children and their continued learning at home, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please email the school office or myself directly via the email address sent to you all in an email to ask any questions you may have and stay in touch.


Kind Regards,


Mr Wallace

Autumn Term 1: Allotment


Welcome back Year 5! We hope you've had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are looking forward to another year at Stilton. This term our topic will be about Allotments. 


As part of this topic we will be learning about lots of exciting things:

- about trade around the world

- how plants reproduce

- we'll grow our own vegetables and maybe use them to cook something if we are successful!

- we'll read The Secret Garden and answer questions about it in Guided Reading

- we'll explore wonderful artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe

and so much more!


We can't wait to get started!


Below you will be able to find a curriculum map for this term and some other useful resources that you might need throughout this topic. 

Autumn Term 2: Firedamp and Davy Lamps

This term we will be descending in to the depths of Britain's coal mines and discovering how coal miners brought the precious coal up to the surface. We will learn about how coal mining changed industry throughout time and we will even get to interview our very own coal miner, Mr Adcock who really did work as a coal miner in Yorkshire many years ago!


Check out our Knowledge Organiser for more facts that you will learn about this term!

I have attached a version of our remote learning timetable. I will then send  daily timetables on Class Dojo before 8.00am every day. Thanks. Mr Wallace.

Term 3: Peasants, Princes and Pestilence


This term we will learn about how the 14th Century was a difficult time for the people of England. We will learn about the battles that were fought; the cold climate which lead to a famine and the Black Death which spread far and wide across Europe killing millions of people. 

Term 4: Tudors


This term the children will begin their topic by recreating the Battle of Bosworth which marked the dawn of the Tudor reign. They will learn about the events of that day and then recreate it on the school playground.
