Hello and welcome to the Year 5 section of the website. The Year 5 teaching team for this academic year is:
Mr. M Collier - Teacher
Mrs. D Farrugia, Ms. A Stewart and Mrs. C Clarke - Learning Support Assistants
Every other Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Chance will be covering the class.
During the Summer term Year 5 will be learning about the following:
English - We will read high quality texts including: The Highwayman and Macbeth. We will be exploring these texts through drama and producing writing based on these.
Maths - Continuing to develope knowledge and understanding of place value, the four operations and fractions. Children will also solve rich mathematical tasks to help develop problem solving skills. Towards the end of the term we will be applying our knowledge and skills to timed maths activities.
Science - Animals including Humans & Living Things and Their Habitats. We will be exploring life cycles of mammals, birds and amphibians as well as looking at the life cycle of plants.
History- Crime and Punishment Through the Ages. Exploring how crime and punishment has changed in Britain over time and what modern day crime and punishment is like.

Swimming will take place on a Monday and a normal PE session will take place on a Wednesday.
Children will need to bring the following kit in a bag to all swimming sessions:
- Swimming costume (One piece costume for girls, shorts for boys - tight fitting, not 'surf style' shorts)
- Goggles (if required)
- Hat (These can be purchased at the pool on the first swimming session for £1)
- A snack to have after the session
Home learning will normally be given out every few weeks, with a longer project to complete in this time. Online maths homework will be set regularly on the MyMaths website. It would be very beneficial for children to read regularly at home and to be heard by an adult or older sibling as well as continuing to practise their times tables.
