Welcome to 5T




Our theme for this Autumn 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.



  • Please enjoy a book with your child at home. They will be rewarded in school for reading 4 or more times during the week.
  • It is imporant for your child to practise their times tables regularly. They should know them to 12x12 including division facts. Please follow the links below for fun ways to practise.
  • We will send out spellings on a Monday to be tested the following Monday.
  • Each week the children will be set a task on Mathletics to consolidate our learning in class. This should be completed for the following week.
