Year 5 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 5
Our teacher is Mrs Murphy.
Autumn Term 2023
This half term we are going to be exploring Legends, Persuasion, Stories with historical settings, Film and Playscript and Classic Narrative Poetry in English, learning about Properties of Changing Materials in Science and the Anglo-Saxons & Scots in History, as well as lots of other exciting things in other areas of the curriculum! Geography will be all about Trade and how we import and export goods!
In Year 5 the children will be supported each day by Mr Day.
PE- This year, PE will take place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Children are to attend school on both days, dressed in their PE kit.The children are welcome to wear jogging bottoms or leggings as part of their PE kit, but please make sure they are black, navy or dark grey.
Year 5 Homework:
Reading- Children will now be able to change their books once they have finished reading them, rather than on specific days. We do ask you to encourage your child to read the book more than once, as it helps with comprehension and understanding. Before your child moves on to a new book band, they will have to complete an assessment to show that they understand what they are reading. When reading with your child, we would encourage you to ask the children questions about what they have read, to assist with their understanding.
Spellings- Spelling tests will take place on a Friday. I will send your child’s termly spellings home half termly. Please encourage your child to practice spelling the words and writing them in sentences.

Homework will also go home on a Friday (either a piece of maths or english) to be returned the following Wednesday.
Y5 Class Prayer
Now the day is over, we lift our hands and say,
"Thank you heavenly Father, for today.
We're sorry for the wrong things, but glad about the right,
keep us heavenly Father, in Your love tonight"
