Miss Malton's class 2019 - 2020

Miss Malton


Welcome to the start of a new school year. I hope you have all had a lovely Summer and are looking forward to all of the fantastic things you will be doing in Year 5.

Our class page is here to help you find information on everything we are doing this coming year. You can find the Autumn Curriculum Planner, which shows what we will be covering up until Christmas, as well as the Yearly Curriculum Overview in case you want to get a head start. This year we will be working hard on new topics, but we will be having fun along the way.

There will be a Meet and Greet evening for parents in September (date TBC), where plans and expectations for the year ahead can be discussed. You are welcome to attend and I look forward to seeing you there.



Our Autumn Curriculum Planner should provide you with all of the information you need to know which fantastic activities we will be doing across all areas of the curriculum. If you have any questions about upcoming activities, please don’t hesitate to ask.


The Ancient Egyptians

During the Autumn Term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We will delve into the past and discover what happened during the process of mummification, who the Egyptians worshipped, how pyramids were built, what the purpose of death masks were and much, much more.




“Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?”

This term we will be looking at William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. This exciting tale of family feuds, fighting and love will draw out our creative writing skills as we read through Andrew Matthews and Tony Ross’ magnificent adaptation.



Our PE session this term will be done in class. Please can you ensure that your child has the appropriate school PE kit every week and that it has their name clearly written on each item to avoid loss.

Outdoor Kit: Trainers, black track suit bottoms with the school logo or black shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-Shirt and black or green school jumper.

Indoor Kit: Pumps, black shorts and a yellow school t-Shirt. 


Forest Fun

This half term we have Forest Fun every Thursday afternoon, so remember to bring the appropriate clothes!


Water Bottles

Staying hydrated massively helps to maintain concentration levels. So, please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school every day and that it is clearly identifiable. 



Each week your child will be given three sets of homework; Spellings, Maths and Grammar. Your child will be given their own personal Grammar book and will be expected to look after it. 

Homework will be given out each Friday and is to be returned by the following Friday please. (It can be handed in earlier if your child completes it beforehand.) I understand that there may be occasions where finding time to complete homework is difficult at home, however, there will be time on Thursdays to complete unfinished homework.

It would also be beneficial if your child could read either with you or independently each day.
