Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

This year our classes are named after famous people in the arts, so the Year 5 classes are called:

Banksy and Glennie

Banksy: we are taught by Miss Atkin and Miss Hogg

Glennie: we are taught by Miss Byrne and Miss Elias

ALL children need to have a pair of indoor footwear for use around school - these could be pumps, slippers or another pair of shoes or trainers.

PE: Monday and Wednesday (Banksy)

      Tuesday and Wednesday (Glennie)

Please ensure your child has their P.E on these days, including suitable footwear for PE outside, trousers or shorts, the plain red t-shirt that is our PE uniform and a tracksuit top for cooler days as PE is often done outside.


Learning log homework, spellings and times tables will be given out every Friday and need to be returned no later than the following Wednesday.

All children are expected to complete their homework - the spellings and times tables will be tested in school.

Children are also expected to read their home reading book at least three times every week - more often is better and aids faster learning and progress.

Spring 2

This half term our science topic is light: how light travels, how we see things and why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.

In Geography, we are learning about the physical geography, including biomes, vegetation belts and climate zones.

In History, we are conducting an in depth study into World War 2.

We are lucky enough to have external tuition in music. Children are being taught how to play the chimes and ukuleles, alongside music technology lessons.

RE this term focuses on compassion and how different religions show compassion within their faith.

Our PE lessons are focusing on dance (indoor) and hockey (outdoor).
