Year 5

Hello and Welcome to Year 5!

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

Summer Term

We are so excited to start the summer term!  You have all worked so hard this year already and we can’t wait to see what super work you produce this term!

This term we will be studying the Anglo Saxons and Vikings in History.  We are so excited to share this topic with you!  In science, we will be learning all about Living Things and Their Habitats and then Animals including humans. We also have an exciting trip planned for science and we can’t wait to tell you about it! 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!  In DT, we will be putting our sewing skills to the test! 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. 

Children have an Accelerated Reader password and user name. Use this link to access the quizzes!
