Year 5

This year, Miss Bouffler and Miss Honeybun will be teaching in 5S class, while Mr Szebeni will teach 5AS with the help of Mrs Roberts.


In Year 5 the children will be learning:

English, Maths, Phonics and Reading lessons take place each day. Children take part in writing every day, often linked to their topic and the book that they are reading in class. Every half term, the children will be covering a new topic. Foundation subjects such as History, Geography and Music continue to be taught, as often as possible in a cross curricular way. Children will also be learning French and having an Artis lesson once a week.  Curriculum maps will be handed out at the start of each half term so that you can see what your child will be learning for that half term.

During the Spring Term, the children are getting very excited about the Year 5 visit to Hooke Court.  There are a range of activities for the children to participate in which include building bridges, maze, team games and other fun activities.  This trip provides the children with a wonderful opportunity to improve their confidence, communication skills and ability to work as a team.

We expect Year 5 children to read every night.  This reading should be recorded in their reading record.  We focus a great deal on understanding the content of what is being read; asking a variety of questions about the content in order to ensure they gain a full understanding of the plot, characters and themes.

Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled and in school every Monday for our PE lessons during the week.
