Welcome to Year 5! The teacher in our class is Mrs Baird,  Miss Chambers works with us all week to provide extra support and Mrs Johnson also works in Year 5 for some sessions.


Learning in Year 5

Maths and English are taught every morning and weekly spellings are taught ready for a test on Friday. Reading is key to your child's learning and opportunities are given for independent reading, Guided Reading and  listening to the class novel.


Our History/Geography topic for this half term is:

Changes and Reproduction


Music and RE are also taught during the week. Some teachers have specialist subjects: Spanish will be taught by Mrs Edwards, Computing will be taught by Miss Gooseman and one session of PE will be taught by Mr Mulock.


Key information

P.E. - P.E. is on  Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure your child has a named  P.E. kit in school. We will not be going swimming until after February half term and more information will be sent out closer to the time.


Reading - Your child now has a reading pack with a book. It is important that your child reads as often as possible at home and brings their reading pack to school every day as we will have opportunities for your child to read throughout the day.


Times Table Rock Stars -  We will be having our weekly battles with the rest of the Junior classes soon. Please make sure your child is learning their tables at home.


Homework - Year 5 homework page


Your child's log in details should be in the front of their reading record. If you need them again please let us know.


If you have any questions you can speak to us at the end of the day or email us at
