Joydens Wood Junior School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

This year we will be incorporating many of our curriculum subjects into several exciting ‘experiences’ to enrich our learning (please see our curriculum overview below for details of these experiences!). We will be learning each maths objective in the order of the White Rose maths which aims to extend our understanding of new and existing concepts.

Our PE days this year will be on Mondays (outdoor) and Thursdays (indoor) so please ensure you have correct, weather appropriate kit. We are excited to share that Year 5 will be attending swimming lessons this year and details of this are to follow in the near future.

We will be starting Ukelele lessons at the start of October which will continue for the duration of the term. Our Ukelele lessons will link into our experience ‘Long to Reign Over Us…’ and we are looking forward to creating some fantastic music pieces.

English homework and spellings will be given out in a termly format at the start of each term. You will be given maths homework each Friday which must be returned, alongside your English homework, on the following Wednesday. We ask that you continue to read and revise all multiplication and division facts at home.

Thank you for your continued support.


Miss Watson, Mrs Stott-Brooks and Miss Potts
