Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5. 

In Class 5 we have Mrs Geer and Mrs Brice and in Class 6 we have Miss Henderson and Mrs Ball.  



 Our theme this term is Medieval Monarchs. 



This term Year 5 will be finding out all about Medieval Monarchs from 1066 up to the reign of Elizabeth I. 


During English we will be taking inspiration from the Zoo by Anthony Browne, we will create our own narrative after studying zoos and holding a debate about whether zoos have a place in todays society. Then we will be working on a non fiction unit looking at Emperor Penguins. 


Our Class Reader

Here is our Theme Map detailing each subject for Term 1.

Homework - We expect you to read at least 3 times each week to an adult at home and that you complete an activity in your reading journal from the reading tasks set for you. Each time you read, you must get your reading record signed by an adult. Please bring this into school every Friday to be checked. 


Every time you read you will receive a raffle ticket and have the opportunity of winning an exciting new book.  Remember the more you read the better chance you will have of winning the prize!


Maths homework will be times tables practise and will be sent home each Monday to be returned on Friday,  For extra Maths homework you will also have access to  TTRockstars and Maths Shed to practise at home as much as possible. 


We want you to be super spellers! You need to play at least 8 games on Spelling Shed each week. This will help you to understand the Year 5 spelling patterns as well as practice spelling rules from your previous years.
