Welcome to Year 5!

We are Gryffindor!

Our teachers are Miss Baraclough and Mrs Foran

Our topic this term is Time Traveller!

In this topic, children will be learning about how people change through time and why these changes occur. We will be focussing in particular on the book 'Wonder' in English. We will also be looking at the artist Salvador Dali and his famous work. 

We had a great day with The World's Tallest Professional Basketball Player, Paul Sturgess. He is 7ft7in which makes him even taller than Mr Gallagher! We learnt lots of new basketball tricks and took on board all of Paul's top tips! Of course we had to make good use of Paul's selfie arm! 

Important dates for the diary...

Friday 11th May 2018 - Class Assembly


In class we have been playing 'Hit the Button which is a times tables game. Click here to play it! 

Please make sure that children are practicing times tables regularly as they will be tested weekly.

Our topic in RE in the Autumn term was 'Marriage' so Year 5 had their own marriage ceremony! We looked at the symbols that are in the ceremony and we have spoken about the special promises that the couple make to one another. 

In Year 5 you will need to bring to school:

  • Home-School link book
  • Reading Record (signed by an adult at least twice a week)
  • P.E. kit (P.E. days will be Monday and Wednesday)
  • Spelling Log (make sure you have practised any words you have logged and understand what they mean).

You will need these items with you EVERY DAY!


Maths homework will be handed out each week on a Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. 

Children will also log six spellings a week that we are learning to practice throughout the week ready for a test at any time!

Reading and times tables should be practiced regularly.
