Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Class teacher - Miss Hollinshead. 


In class 5, PE sessions are on a Wednesday and  a Friday. Please make sure children have their PE kits in school for these days. Homework is given out on a Friday and expected back each Monday. A spelling lesson and test will be completed on Tuesday mornings. Children in class 5 are given a weekly spelling focus to practice. 



We have had an excellent half term taking part in the Police Cadets scheme in year 5 - take a look at what we have been up to!


Maths 1
During our Maths lessons, we are focusing on shape, space and measure for the next few weeks. Class 5 will be exploring volume, capacity and converting measurements. 


English 1

Within our English lesson this term, class 5 will be looking at Greek myths and legends. The children will be listening to and discussing lots of Greek myths and writing their own towards the end of the unit. This topic links nicely with our History learning this half term, as we will be learning all about Ancient Greece. 


Children in class 5 are expected to be reading at least three times a week. When children reach this reading target, they are able to join our achievements board for the week. Please encourage your child to read at home, as this will help them progress with both their reading and writing skills. 


Science 1
Our Science learning this term is focused upon Earth and Space. Class 5 will be learning all about the planets in our Solar System and will discuss how the Earth, moon and Sun orbit together. The children will also be learning about how we get night and day. 


Topic 1
Class 5 are looking at the Ancient Greeks this term in their History topic. They will be learning about their lives, how that compares to our lives now and will also be creating their own Greek pottery. Children in year 5 will also be learning about the Greek myths and legends throughout this unit.
