Year 5

Hello and Welcome to Year 5!

In Year 5, we are taught by Mrs Beresford, Miss Forster, Miss Slater and Mr King. Mrs Purvis, Mr Curd and Miss Stoker also support us in class.

We would like to say a huge thank you for your support over the Spring term. We can’t wait to start our summer term topics!

Summer Term
This term we will be studying the Anglo Saxons and Vikings in History and we have some exciting lessons and activities planned!  In science, we will be learning all about Living Things and Their Habitats.  Our geography topic later in the term will be all about ‘The Coast’.  We will learn all about coastal features and how we can help protect it from erosion. Our art lessons will be focusing on improving our sketching and drawing skills then later in the unit we will be working with clay to make our own viking jewellery!  We are also very excited for our PE lessons where we are going to be developing our skills in Athletics and Outdoor Adventurous Activities.

Look what we’ve been up to in Year 5

Home Reader

It is expected for children to read at home every evening. Children should return their book to school daily, so they have the opportunity to read with adults in school. When children have completed a book, they will be able to complete a quiz in school based on the book they have read. These results will be recorded in your child’s home reader. Points and prizes will  be awarded for completing quizzes. Children who are unable to read at home will be given the opportunity to read in school if books are not returned. Please feel free to see us or write in your child’s Home-School Contact Book if there are any issues. It is essential that home and school communicate effectively, working together to ensure your child receives the very best from school.
