Year 5 2023 - 2024

Miss Anderson

Welcome to Year 5

Our teacher is Miss Anderson.


Autumn Term 2022

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 Earth and Space and Forces in Science and the Anglo-Saxons & Scots in History, as well as lots of other exciting things in other areas of the curriculum!

In Year 5 the children will be supported each day by Mrs Darbyshire and by Mrs Mansfield who will be working in class on a Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoon.

PE- This year, PE will take place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday (swimming). Children are to attend school on Tuesdays, dressed in their PE kit. They need to come to school on Wednesdays in full uniform, with their swimming kit in a labelled bag. 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 on Friday 9th September. Please encourage your child to practice spelling the words and writing them in sentences.
