Welcome back Class 16.


Welcome back to Year 5, we hope you had a lovely Easter break and are all revitalised for our Summer term. To make sure that everything runs smoothly and that the children settle back into their learning easily, we have a Miss Moloney, the Class Teacher, Mrs Dowson and Mrs Hill who are always on hand with their support.


Over this summer term the topic will "From Summit to sea", a Geography based topic that allows the children to explore the physical geography of how mountains and rivers are formed, as well as the locations of the seven major summits across the globes.


Year 5 will also be reading the book Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, a book that both inspires their creative writing and their grammatical knowledge. 

What to Bring to School


Please take the time to label ALL belongings, such as lunchboxes, water bottles etc. As we are a healthy school, we do ask the children have water only in the classrooms. At break time, the children can have a healthy snack of fruit or vegetable sticks. All other equipment will be provided. Please leave pencil cases at home to enjoy when you get home.




PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays. Just a reminder that our PE kit consists of red shorts, white top and trainers. Black joggers and a black sweatshirt or hoodie are great for when it is colder, especially as PE is always outdoors.


Home School Diaries


Your Home School Diary needs to be in school every day as it is used to record times tables, spellings as well as reading. In the front of the diary you will find the login details you need for some of our wonderful online resources, such as TTRS, Bug Club and Google Classrooms.

This year, there will continue to be a strong emphasis on knowing the times tables by heart as this is especially important in Year 5.

As these things are so important, we ask that parents listen to the children read at least three times a week to encourage a love of books as well as supporting them with any times tables and spellings that they bring home. When you listen to your children read, this can be recorded in their Home School Diary and will count towards reading certificates which are awarded in order to celebrate their progress.


We look forward to continuing a really good partnership between home and school. To further this, there are lots of certificates to be earned for reading at home and an achievement scheme for learning times table facts. Look forward to your children bringing home lots of certificates!




Our topic this term is "From Summit to sea", the children will be identifying the key features of mountains and rivers as well as understanding how they are formed.  


Look out for more information on the curriculum that we will be studying over the course of the year in order to support your child as much as possible. Also, look out for any letters sent home or messages in the Home School Diary as well as log in details for TTRS.


Miss Moloney.
