We welcome the children back for another challenging and exciting year. The year 5 teachers are Mr Czartowski (5 Don) and Mr Miller (class 5 Humber). 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 (Autumn 1)
The children will be completing narrative writing, instructions and newspaper reports.
Maths (Autumn 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)
- Crime and Punishment (History)
- Rivers (Geography)
- Game design(Computing)
- Islam (R.E)
- Dance (P.E)
- Rousseau (Art)
Letters for the trip to Nell Bank have been sent out. All children must have returned the permission slip in order for them to attend. Please make contact with us for further information about the day.
Below are some of the photos from last year's trip.

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 regularly, 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.
Games and PE
The children in year 5 will have their Games lesson with Mr Hannington on a Monday afternoon. They will also have an indoor PE session on a Thursday.
Can we ask that the children bring a full indoor and outdoor kit with them at the start of each week.
