This is a Motto

Year 5

Hello and welcome to the Year 5 webpage!


The 2 classes in Year 5 are 5 Chestnut and 5 Elm.  Miss Routledge, along with Mr Hannah and Mrs Howe are the staff in 5 Chestnut while Mr. McKinney, Miss Roberts and Miss Humphries are in 5 Elm.



Outdoor PE is on Tuesday and Indoor PE is on Wednesday for Summer 1.  Children need to come to school in their PE kit on the appropriate days and will stay in these for the whole day.  They will not get changed at school at the moment. As it is approaching summer we will allow children to wear shorts in warmer weather for their PE lessons.



In Year 5 children will need to read every day, they can practise times tables on as well as their weekly spellings.  Teachers will also set homework on My Maths and Class Dojo and other tasks as they arise.


Times Tables Rockstars

Each child has an account that they can access at home - there is also a 'Times tables Rockstars' app that you can download to your phone or tablet.  It has been proven that those children who use these perform better in school and In tests.



Children should read for at least 10 minutes every night.  If you sign their diary when they have read with you, they can earn a sticker on the class Reading Leaderboard and earn prizes.


It is a school expectation that this homework is completed on time each week.



The main topic in geography, Art and DT this half term will be India.  Science will develop the children's understanding of the Forces. We will also be looking at Pop ups as part of our DT project this half term.

This half term we will be working on resilience through PSHE and Nurture lessons at school this half term.
