St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 5


Welcome to Year 5


This term we are 'Counting Counties'.  The children will learn more about the geography of the UK. 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.

Please practise the spellings from our homework page and square and squares root facts for a test on Thursday.  Homework is due each week by Thursday.
