Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
In Year 5, pupils are supported in their learning by Mr Evans, Mrs Thackray, Mrs DiClemente, Mrs Shedlow, Mrs Bray, Miss Batool, Mrs Ulett and Mrs Dawson.
 Our summer term will get off to a super-exciting start this year as we all head off on the Year 5 residential trip to Whitby. When we return our experiences of Whitby will help us with learning about the history of Whitby and how it developed throughout the ages. We will learn how the physical and human geographical influences have shaped Whitby, and how the changes in local trades and industry brought wealth and prosperity to this once small fishing community. During this learning we will look at some of the people who really helped to put Whitby on the map. These will include Mary Anning, Captain Cook and of course Bram Stoker.


As historians we will develop our research and presenting skills as we study how changes throughout history do not always happen at an even pace. By comparing and contrasting different eras of our countries history we will be able to identify periods of slow change and periods of rapid development and advancement. 

In ICT we will be learning how to share the results of our research and learning through Padlet.

We will continue to develop our reading skills with daily Guided Reading sessions. Reading comprehension will continue to be taught weekly.  


In Science we will be learning about how plants and animals reproduce through examining life cycles of a range of flora and fauna. 



Children will be given Maths and EGPS home learning each Thursday and this is to be returned by the following Thursday. Spellings will be tested on a Thursday too.

Our Learning Log challenges will also be set alongside this. 

Please also encourage your child to read every day and practice their times tables. 



Year 5 PE sessions are on Thursday and Friday afternoons each week. We will also hold a reading afternoon each Friday at 3pm for parents and carers to join us in our classrooms. Please come to the pod doors.
