Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 5


Welcome to Year 5


Our topic this term is 'Carnival'.  The children will learn more about the geography of South America. 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.


For our play 'Hoodwinked' we will be wearing shades of the forest

eg browns, greens, oranges, beige.  

Please provide your child with a plain top e.g. t-shirt/ shirt and a plain bottom e.g. shorts, trousers, leggings in forest colours. 

Please no 'sparkles' or football shirts.   

If your child is wearing an adult t-shirt, please provide them with a belt.

We will wear our school shoes on our feet.

Please write your name inside the clothes and on the carrier bag.

Costumes need to be in school by Monday.
