Our Curriculum

Autumn Term

This Year, Y5 will kick start the year and their first term by tackling Place Value and Number in Maths. We will refresh our minds on the value of numbers and how to work with them effectively and using patterns.
Our Guided Reading sessions will be based all around the enchanting tale of ‘The Secret Garden’  we have already read Chapter One and the children are completely hooked by the dramatic content. We simply can’t wait to keep reading and gets lots of story writing done linked with this magical story!
We will also complete our Art Rainbow project, tackle Geography skills as part of this terms topic and enjoy Monday PE sessions as well as all the other curriculum areas taught in Merton Bank!

Things to Remember

  • Pupils do not need to have a pencil case of their own in school. A book bag and packed lunch bag will suffice.
  • Children need to bring their own water bottles and take them home each day
  • Attendance at school is compulsory


All of your child’s home learning can be found on their Microsoft Teams account
