Year 5

Welcome to Year 5's class page. Here is where you will find out more about our classes: Kingfisher, Swan and Heron!

Time is really flying this year; what a fabulous first four terms we've had! From Ancient Greece to intrepid exploration and delving into our local history, we've had a lot of fun so far! We are very excited about our next topic - London - and all that we have planned. The children will also get the opportunity to take part in our very own London Street Party which we are rather excited about!

Mrs Collver, Mrs Yousuf, Miss Keech and Mr Heaton and the rest of the Year 5 team are raring to go.


In addition to all our wondrous learning this term, we will be spending lots of time making sure our minds and bodies are feeling healthy too. We will be singing, exploring different ways to be mindful, focusing on well-being and ensuring that we are all familiar with the new routines in school. We will be taking time to discuss the past 6 months with the children and the experiences they have had: we understand that it was so different for all of us. 

For more information on wellbeing and mindfulness, why not try these awesome websites (we use some of them in school)?

Homework relating to the children's spelling learning will be handed out every Friday to practise at home. We will have our spelling test the following Friday in class. Children are encouraged ask for help, at home or school, if needed.






In Year 5, we love reading and have got some glorious topic books! All children read regularly in school: they read weekly in guided reading, once every 3 weeks one-to-one with an adult and are given opportunities to read independently, daily. We also share a class story at the end of every day linked to our topic.  We give children opportunities to change books regularly. We encourage children to discover books they enjoy so if your child is a free reader, and is enjoying a particular novel at home, they are welcome to bring it to school to read during the day.
