Welcome to Year 5!

We are Gryffindor!

Our teachers are Miss Baraclough and Mrs Foran

Our topic this term is Off With Her Head!

In this topic, children will be learning about The Tudors and how they play a significant part in history. We will be focussing in particular on Henry VIII and his wives and crime and punishment in the Tudor period. In English, we will be looking at biographies, poetry, riddles and newspaper reports.

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 this term is '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.
