             Welcome to 5T





Autumn 2019




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.

We will also be reading and responding to a range of texts including The Explorer by Katherine Randall. 

We are continuing with our writing project- IPEELL,which aims to accelerate progress in writing for all.

See the Curriculum Overview plan- Autumn 2019 below for more details of our learning this term. 



  • 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 Monday and will be tested the following Monday.

  • 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. Please use Tables Rock Stars to help with this.
