'Passion for learning, education for life'

Year 5

Mr Pearce, Miss Stevens, Mrs Hitchman, Ms Dancer, Miss Patterson and Mrs Powell are all very much looking forward to working with you all over the next academic year!

It is our mission as teachers in Year 5 to guide and support you all to reach your true potential through a range of exciting activities, engaging lessons and interesting trips that will help to develop your skills and understanding.

We hope that you will enjoy your time in Year 5 and below is some basic information to help you through the year.


Homework will be sent home every Friday in a personal, yellow learning log and will focus on Maths and English or Topic. We expect the learning log to be returned by no later than the following Wednesday to give the teachers sufficient time to see the work that has been completed. Please don't forget to come and see your teacher as soon as possible if you are struggling with any homework so that we can support you.  In the back of your homework books, you will also find the Year 5/6 high frequency words and a copy of the times table grid.  Your times tables extremely important, so try to test yourself on a different table each week!

Spellings will also be sent home in a 6-week block inside the learning log and spelling tests will take place every Friday.

It is also an expectation that you read/read out loud to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes every night


Outdoor P.E will take place on a Friday afternoon (weather depending) and therefore can you please make sure that if you take your kit home on Friday that you bring it back into school on Monday morning. If you forget your kit more than once, a letter will be sent home to alert your parents that it must be in for the following session. Can you also remember (especially if you have pierced ears) that all jewellery must be removed before a P.E lesson starts.

Indoor PE will take place on a Wednesday afternoon.  Can you ensure your child has a plain white t-shirt and shorts and indoor trainers with non-marking soles (standard black pumps would be preferred).

Useful websites

Don't forget that Bug Club is up and running and you should all have been given your usernames and log ons.

Also, some weeks your maths homework will refer to the Mangahigh website where your teachers will have allocated some games and activities linked to the work you have done that particular week! Again you should all have your usernames and log ons stuck in the front of your learning logs.

If you do misplace or forget your password, please see your teacher.

Planetarium Visit

13th October 2016

To support our Fascinating Pharaoh's topic (along with our ‘Space’ focus in Science) we were lucky to receive a visit from Dave Buttery and his mobile planetarium.  During their time in the dome, the children learnt about our solar system, Astrology and were treated to a wonderful video showing a time lapse video of the ISS orbiting the planet. During his time with us, Dave also explained the stars and how the Ancient Egyptians used the stars and planets in their everyday lives.
