St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School Year 5 Pupils

Hello and a very warm welcome to our Year 5 class page.

Our class teachers are:

Mrs Ross, Mrs Bryan & Mrs Thompson


Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year.  The children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning.  These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons which provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the challenges of Year 6.

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 understanding. 

In English, the children have written a range of genres, which include diaries, letters and descriptions to name but a few.  Their writing throughout the year has always been inspired by both the novel we are reading as well as the topic that we are studying that term.  This has led to the children producing informative and thought provoking pieces of writing.  They have also worked particularly hard to ensure both their handwriting and presentation is of a high standard.

We have had lots of exciting topics planned this year.  At the beginning of the, our History focus was World War Two, in which our educational visit by historians helped to bring this period alive from the artefacts we studied to the stories they told.  After that, we studied the Rainforest, which was our geography focus. This involved a fantastic visit to Chester Zoo and we were able to see rainforest animals up close.  Finally, this summer term, our focus is Ancient Greece. We will be looking at both historical and geographical aspects, with some thrilling opportunities planned.

Our Science topics throughout the year have provided some thought provoking investigations and experiments.  They have enabled the children to question and wonder about how and why scientific processes occur.

We have also been extremely lucky to have taken part in ‘Let’s Sing’, which was a proud and exhilarating moment.  The children enjoyed this opportunity thoroughly and their confidence shone.

Thank you for your continous support.

Mrs Ross
