Welcome to Year 5
We have one year 5 class. The staff in year 5 are Miss Smith (Class Teacher and Assistant Principal), Mrs Schilling (Class Teacher) and Mrs Williams (Teaching Assistant). Miss Smith teaches on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Schilling teaches on a Thursday and Friday. If you would ever like to speak to us then we are always available at the beginning and end of the school day or an appointment can be made through the office.
In Year 5, children continue their journey through KS2 and encounter more challenging work. A day in year 5 consists of a literacy lesson from our ‘book rich’ curriculum and maths lessons in the morning. Our afternoons are focused on topic work, in which we look at different areas of the curriculum such as: Science, R.E, Music, History & Geography, P.S.H.C.E, computing and P.E. We also have discrete spelling, reading and handwriting sessions throughout the day.
Homework is given out each week in learning logs. There is also a half termly home learning challenge which will be set at the beginning of each half term. Children are encouraged to read at home and practise their timetables and spellings.

Monday: Reading Records are collected in.
Tuesday: P.E. – please remember your P.E. kit and trainers.
