Hello and a very warm welcome to our Year 5 class page.
Our class teachers are:
Class 9 - Mrs Boardman, Mrs Bryan
Class 10 - Mrs Cooper, Mrs Kidman, Mrs Hughes
Year 5 is an exciting year full of fun and engaging learning. In the Autumn term and at the start of
Spring, our topic of ‘World War 2’ will take us on a journey to the 1940s where we will discover what life
was like for our ancestors. The British Empire, Life during the war, different shelters and famous figures
are just some of the areas covered, with a key focus on Anne Frank. We will read a range of texts that focus
around this topic. We will enjoy writing a wide range of genres including balanced arguments, a biography,
persuasive letters, diary entries and a narrative. In science, children will take a hands on approach to the
topics of living things and their habitats.
As the Spring term progresses into the Summer term, we will study Ancient Greece and the Rainforest. We
will explore Greek culture, key landmarks, gods, the number system and how Greek history affects tourism in
Greece today. Writing genres will include explanation texts, adverts, stories, instructional writing and non
chronological reports. In science, we will explore materials.
In Maths, the children will continue to develop their skills across the different areas in the curriculum.
They are continuously challenged throughout these topics in order to secure and further their
It is important that children complete homework and hand it in on time, as well as reading 4 times a week
to somebody at home, to support their learning.
PE days: Friday for Class 9 and Wednesday & Friday for Class 10
Homework: Handed out every Friday and to be returned the following Thursday
Each week Year 5 will get spellings, either maths or English, and sometimes science. There are also times
when projects linked to science, geography or history may be sent home.
Please make sure children read 4 times a week and access Spelling Shed at
least 4 times a week.
I’m looking forward to an exciting year in Year 5 and am here to support your children in any way I can.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to me at the classroom door, or phone the school
office and leave a message, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
