We welcome the children back for another challenging and exciting year. The year 5 teachers are Mrs Matthews (5 Don) and Mr Miller (class 5 Humber). We are also extremely fortunate to be supported by Mrs Hunter, Miss Huntington, Mrs Wilson who will be working in year 5 this year. Mrs Crook and Mr Hannington will be working with the children during PPA sessions.
Year 5 is an important year and sees the children make the transition to upper key stage two. In year 5 we look to place more responsibility on the children by encouraging them to be more mature in their approach to their learning. It is important to see the children taking greater ownership of their learning becoming more independent and reflective.
English (Spring 1)
The children will be completing narrative writing, debates and balanced arguments.
Maths (Spring 1)
The children will begin every lesson with a short Big Maths Clic session which will look at developing and securing the children's number confidence and knowledge. As well as this, the children will also be given weekly learn it challenges and clic tests. This half term the children will be working upon written methods, reflection, symmetry, reflection, translation and angles.
Some of the topics studied this half term will be:
- Living things (Science)
- Anglo-Saxons and Vikings (History)
- Rivers (Geography)
- Game design(Computing)
- Islam (R.E)
- Dance (P.E)
- Rousseau (Art)
We enjoyed our exciting trip to Nell Bank.

The children will be expected to read regularly at home and have a reading record to record this in. Although we expect the children to read regulalry, this may only be a couple of pages or 5 to 10 minutes.
In year 5 we really encourage the use of Mathletics as this is a fantastic way of reinforcing the childrens learning. Each week we will award our class trophy to the person who has worked hard using Mathletics at home.
The children in year 5 will have their Games lesson with Mr Hannington on a Wednesday afternoon. Can we ask that the children bring a full indoor and outdoor kit with them at the start of each week.
