Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Our teaching team includes Mr Johnson and Miss Ratcliffe (Class Teachers) and Mrs Coker (Teaching Assistant). We will also be utilising the expertise of Miss Torra for our Languages learning each week.

Our Spring Term theme is ‘Making Mischief’, inspired by a range of engaging texts that will be used across our school curriculum. Many of the texts we are using include stories of cheekiness and naughtiness!

  • ‘Boy’ by Roald Dahl
  • ‘The Worst Witch’ by Jill Murphy
  • ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar
  • ‘The Fib’ by George Layton
  • ‘Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover’ by Markus Motum

Important Information for Year 5:

  • This half term we will have PE on a Monday 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.
