Hello and welcome back to Year 5!
A very warm welcome to all our Parents and Carers from all of the Year 5 Team!
It is delightful to see all of the children looking extremely smart and ready to begin another year here at Cape. We will try our best to keep this page updated throughout the year with key information that you may need to know, such as homework tasks, spellings and curriculum events. Thank you in advance for your on-going support.
Meet the team...

Just a quick reminder that all children must have a P.E. kit in school every day as we now have P.E. lessons twice a week and there may be other occasions that P.E. kits are required. Please ensure all children come to school in black school shoes or black trainers only.
Homework is very important at Cape. Each week you will be given a list of spellings (for a test), a piece of English homework and a piece of Maths homework. Make sure you bring in your Reading Record and Homework Diary every day.
All staff at Cape love to read and our aim is to get our children as passionate as we are. We want children to indulge in books that they are interested in, with characters and story lines that they can relate to within their everyday lives! Every child will have an individual reading book in school; these are labelled with coloured stickers that represent a suitable level of challenge for their reading age. These books will also be changed regularly. Reading eggs is also an excellent tool to aid children to develop their reading skills. All children have individual logins for this activity. Children have a reading session with the class teacher and one with the class LSP on a weekly basis.
Clubs: There is one lunchtime club running for Year 5 at the moment. Dodgeball on Wednesday afternoon at 12:30pm. You must make sure your PE kit is in school in order to participate in the club.
Maths: During our maths lessons we will begin by focusing on the number system including: place value, writing and interpreting number as well as rounding numbers. Following this, we will move onto the 4 operations and formal written methods. Please ensure your children continue to learn their times tables and division facts fluently as this is ongoing and essential to their mathematical learning.
English: English will continue to focus on a class text and we aim to produce lots of different genres of writing. The class text we are looking at during the Autumn term is a booked called Street Child which ties in nicely with our Victorian topic in our Creative lessons creating a cross curricular approach to learning.
Creative: We will be looking at life in the Victorian Era during the Autumn term, followed by Pirates during the Spring term and on to the Ancient Greeks come the summer term.
Science: In Autumn 1 we will be looking at living things and their habitats during our science lessons. The topics we focus on are aimed to broaden the children's scientific knowledge through a series of practical and interactive lessons.
Modern Foreign Languages: The chosen language we are studying this year is Spanish and this will continue into year 6 building upon the children's new linguistic skills. We have some Spanish speaking staff at Cape to aid the children in their success as future linguists!
Key Dates: See our curriculum leaflet for these details.
