                     Welcome to the class page for 5H

Autumn 2018




This Autumn Term our theme is ...

The Americas




Within this theme, we will be exploring the life and achievements of ancient America. We will be specifically looking at the life of The Aztecs and The Mayas and their huge influence. We will also study the European influence on the history of America.

 In English, we will be reading a range of information books and writing information texts of our own. We will also be thinking about what life was like for The Mayas and The Aztecs and how we found out about their lives through artefacts. In Geography, we will be looking at the climate and terrain of America and how this affected the country in terms of trade and farming. Our lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of English, History, Geography, Art and Design will be linked together to create a more broad experience.


  • Children in 5H should be in the habit of reading daily. Reading diaries will be checked on a daily basis.

  • Spellings will be sent home to learn on a tuesday and will be tested the following Tuesday.
  • Spag and Mathletics homework will be set every Thursday.
  • Regular tables practice is needed to ensure the children can recall all their tables quickly and confidently.


Additional Information

It is very important that children practice their times tables regularly. Children are expected to know their times tables to 12x12 by the end of Year 4 and much of the work that we do in maths lessons requires quick and accurate times tables recall. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times tables activities below:
