Year 5

Snow Day - Friday 10th March 2023


Morning Year 5!


As school is closed today please can you take the opportunity to read at home, practise your spellings and also your times tables.


We are going to be doing our Icy Write on Monday, so you could also spend some time outside in the snow to experience what it would be like for Lucy in Narnia.  Can you think of any amazing similes or metaphors to describe the snowy landscapes around you? 


See you next week!


Mrs Kenney and Mrs Bradshaw

Welcome to Year 5's class page!


Our teachers are Mrs Bradshaw on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and Mrs Kenney on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.  Mrs Short is our Teaching Assistant and is with us every day.


We have P.E on a Monday and Thursday, and we are now getting changed at school again so you will need to bring your PE kit in a bag.  You can leave your bag at school if you want to.  


Every half term we have a new topic - more details are in the Curriculum Map documents below.



It's really important that you read every week at home - we expect at least times every week.  An adult needs to sign your school organiser to show that you have read. We have a 'Reading Mileage' challenge in school and there are prizes for children who read regularly at home...!


Times Tables

Learning times tables off by heart is essential.  Every week, on a Friday, we have a times table test in school.  Children move through the tests as they improve their times tables.  Every child has a Times Table Rock Stars log in - this is a brilliant website and really helps children with learning their times tables.  



Spelling tests are on a Friday and children are given new spellings on a Friday too.  We do spend some time in class learning spellings but extra time at home is important too. 

There are lots of links below to websites and resources we use in class.  Have a look through!
