Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 and the Autumn Term!


Mr Johnson and Miss Ratcliffe are our class teachers and Mrs Sherrington, Mrs Wallwork and Mrs Facer also work with us during the week. On Wednesdays we have Mr Gardner and Miss Rowcliffe from Cheadle Hulme High School to teach PE and Drama for the afternoon.


Important Information 

Our library day is Thursday so don’t forget your library book!

This half term we will have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, but try to have your kit in school every day just in case.
Home Learning is set on a Wednesday and is due on the following Monday.  The children will be given a slip outlining the task. Advice, guidance and helpful links will be given on the Home-Learning slip but if you require additional information please contact Mr Johnson or Miss Ratcliffe.

The children should also read their Reading, Library and Guided Reading books.


Autumn Term Theme – ‘Quests and Pursuits’

Our theme for the Autumn Term is entitled ‘Quests and Persuits’. We will be using the Inspirational Text ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker throughout this time as a way of engaging with our school curriculum. The book contains no text but instead tells the story of a girl who uses a magical red crayon to go on an adventure which leads to a new friendship.
Look out for updates on our Twitter feed to follow some of our learning throughout this term.
