Welcome to Year 5

We hope that you will join us on our exciting learning journey this year and enjoy our updates.


Year 5 is an amazing year at Christ Church Academy. We face the challenge of preparing for our SAT exams in Year 6 and building the foundation for a transition to secondary school

We approach all of these challenges with a positive ’CAN DO ‘attitude and see all our hard work rewarded at the end of the year.

Please support us by reading with your child every night, practising their passport maths skills and undertaking homework tasks.

Read your child’s report card and ask them about ‘being green’ and ensure they have their PE kit.


Come into school and visit, we will be holding parent/student art activities this year





This term will begin with narrative poem. We will look at the famous “Pied Piper”  and create our own story, character studies and conversations.


We will  study statistics and shape this term. We will focus on arithmetic and work extremely hard to ensure that we are ready for all those Year 6 calculations.

It is vital the children learn their times tables before they begin Year 6 so please keep practising these at home and encourage your child to do as much maths facts passport homework as possible.

We aim to have every child confident with all written methods before they start Year 6 and knowing all of these key facts will help them succeed in Year 6.

Physical Education: We will be learning how to successfully participate in team games such as Rounders. We will practise our ball skills focusing on throwing and catching.
