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 Taylor, along with Miss ~child and Miss Hannah are the staff in 5 Chestnut while Mr. Clough and Miss Humphreys are in 5 Elm.



Indoor PE is on Thursday and Outdoor PE is on Tuesday.  Children need to come to school in their PE kit on the appropriate days and will stay in thirds for the whole day.  They will not get changed at school at the moment.



In Year 5 children will need to read every day, they can practise 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 history this half term will be the Vikings after a brief introduction to the Anglo-Saxons.  Science will develop the children's understanding of materials and their properties.  The children will listen to and appraise Rock music in Music lessons and online safety in computing.

We will also be working on making sure your child feels safe and secure at school through PSHE and Nurture lessons.

Working hard at Forest School

Back to the grind of schoolwork after isolation!

After the hard work, the reward. Marshmallows round the fire at our last Forest School session.

Art work from Home Learners during Lockdown 3. Space and the landscape outside my window.


As we used some of the text from Captain Tom's autobiography, when we were all in school before Christmas, we thought we would do some art work to remember what he achieved following the sad news of his death last week.
