Welcome to Year 5's class page!

TA Miss Ahmed 


I am looking forward to a fantastic year. In Year 5, we have lots of exciting and interesting things to learn, which will help the children to develop their inquisitive minds.


In English, Year 5 will be using the books Mrs Noah’s Pockets and Mrs Noah’s Garden to inspire descriptive writing. In Maths, the children will be developing their understanding of place value and addition and subtraction. In R.E. this half term, they will be exploring how we have been created in the image and likeness of God. In Science, the children will be learning about sounds. Finding out how they are made and how the ear functions. During Geography lessons, the children will find out about the regions of the UK, discovering how some of these areas have changed over time.


English and Maths homework will be given out every Friday and should be returned to school completed every Monday.

P.E Kit
Year 5 will have P.E. on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The children should come to school in their PE kits on these days.
The school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, a pair of black or navy shorts and a pair of black pumps. We will be doing P.E. outside whenever possible so the children can wear black or navy tracksuit bottoms / leggings and a black or navy tracksuit top / sweatshirt / hoodie.

Reading Books

Your child has been provided an appropriate reading book based on the Accelerated Reader assessement. Please read sign the child's reading record when they have read the book and send it back to school so that they can take the Accelerated Reader quiz linked to the book. Then they will be given a  new book.
