Year 5

           Welcome to the Year 5 page

Welcome to the Spring term in Year 5. We hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and are ready for the exciting activities we have planned for you. Your Year 5 teachers this term are:

Mrs Cookson, Mrs Bailey, Mrs Deller and Mrs Day.


Some important things you need to remember are:


PE days are Mondays (outdoor Games) and Thursdays (indoor PE) - Remember to come to school in your PE kit.



Remember, you will still need to read 4 times each week and have this signed in your organiser. If you continue reading every week, you will be a fantastic reader by the end of Year 5 and be able to come to the reading treat each term!


Doodle Maths and Doodle tables are also an important part of your learning at home. Try and login and have a go at these every week as they will support your progress in maths at school.


Spelling tests are every Friday ( Mrs Deller's group Thursday) Make sure you practise your spelling words at home before your test. 


Guitar lessons are on Tuesdays and Woodwind lessons are on Wednesdays.


Our topic this half term is a history topic " CRIME and PUNISHMENT"

Next half term it will be all about  Geography and " BIOMES of the WORLD"
