Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 5 Page


Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!

We are horticulturists! Our topic for this half term is ‘Allotments’ which means that we will spend a lot of time exploring the outdoors! We will be giving our school garden a much needed makeover; weeding the planters, planting flowers and hopefully even managing to grow some vegetables!

In Science, we will be learning about what plants need to grow by carrying out a range of experiments and also exploring the different parts of a flower. We will be studying the artist Van Gogh and having a go at recreating his famous painting ‘Sunflowers’ using oil pastels. English: Setting and character descriptions based on the short film ‘Little Freak’.

Maths: Geometry We all loved the twist at the end of our last class book ‘Rooftoppers’! This half term we are reading ‘Bad Dad’ by David Walliams.

Year News

We have PE on a Wednesday but may also have the opportunity to take part in PE activities at late notice on other days. Your child needs to bring their PE kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. As part of our P.E, we will be going swimming every Thursday afternoon until the end of the school year. We will leave the Neptune Centre at approximately 3:30pm to
return to school for 3:40pm. If you want to collect your child from the Neptune, it needs to be before 3.30pm.



We do not set weekly homework for your child in Year 5, however we encourage them to read as regularly as possible.

The children now all have logins to ‘Reading Plus’ which can be used on most devices which have access to the internet other than mobile phones. Mr Suthers is planning to hold some sessions for parents in the near future to explain how it  works and how you can help your child with it at home.
Your child will also take home spellings on a Friday to be tested the following Friday.
