St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 5


Welcome to Year 5


This term we are 'Behind the Mask'.  The children will learn more about the history of The Maya. On this page, you will find our Year 5 curriculum map, which gives the overview of learning across the year; weekly homework; and any additional information we need to communicate with our parents.


If you would like further information about learning at St Peter’s, please visit the curriculum section of our website. If you would like to speak to one of the Year 5 teachers about learning, please do not hesitate in contacting them.


Friday 18th May


Thank you to everyone for an enjoyable trip to Flatford and thank you to the parents for your kind words and messages.  It has been a pleasure.  


A big thank you to the staff who accompanied us on our trip as without their support this trip would not be possible.  Thank you to Miss Joseph for posting our messages, pictures and videos on Twitter.


If you haven't seen our tweets, please take a look.  Please also see below for photographs of our trip.


For homework this week, please complete the method maths sheet (on the sheet) and write a letter to say thank you to our instructors at Flatford Mill.  We will post these letters to the instructors next week. 

Please do not write your home address or surname on the letter. 

It is important that you do not write your home address on the letter.  Please use the school address instead.


Please learn the spellings attached.

Instead of a times table test this week, we will have a measures test eg how many grams in a kilogram? How many centimetres in half a metre? 

Please make sure your child knows and can use these facts: 

1000g= 1kg;  

0.5 Kg = 500g;  

0.25 Kg = 250g;

0.75 = 750g;

100 cm = 1m;

0.5m = 50 cm;

0.25(one quarter) m = 25cm;

0.75 (three quarters) = 75 cm;

1000ml = 1 L ;

500ml = 0.5 L 

250 ml = 0.25 L

750ml= 0.75 L 


Thank you for your continued support,

Year 5 Team
