Welcome to Year 5
We are looking forward to the academic year ahead and can’t wait to find out what awaits us! Please find below some information which may be useful for you and your child.
There are two teachers in Year 5 Miss Farr and Mrs Nuttall; supporting us are Mrs Turner, Mrs Whitworth, Mrs Makin, Mrs Entwistle and Mrs Swift. We will all be working closely together to ensure an interesting and exciting year.
Our topics for this year include Forces, life cycles and aging, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Space and Rainforests and Slavery.
P.E. will take place on Tuesday afternoon. We will be learning gymnastic skills this half term and next half term we will develop our rugby skills. Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit in school and that no jewellery is worn. Ear-rings must be taken out or covered with plasters.
Spellings and times tables will be set each week for homework. We also encourage the children to read at least three times a week and Dojos will be given as a reward. Additional homework may be sent linked to work done in class.
Should you have any concerns or questions, please contact us. Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 5 team.
