Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


We have two classes in Year 5 – 5H (Mr Hewish) and 5R (Miss Roberts). We are also supported in the mornings by Mrs Furzeland.


Year 5 Learning

Below is an outline of the learning that will take place for Year 5 throughout this upcoming term. There will be multiple opportunities for children to immerse, engage, develop and apply their knowledge and skills throughout a whole host of focuses within the wider curriculum.


PE - Our PE day is on a Monday. On this day, children can come into school wearing their PE kit.


Reading - We use Accelerated Reader. Children will select books from our library areas from within their reading range. Once they have completed a book, they will take a quiz to check their understanding of what they have read. They will then conference with their teacher before revisiting the library to choose their new book. 



We use Oracy all throughout the curriculum to share ideas and opinions, agree and disagree with our peers, feedback and listen and engage with others. 

Some of the Oracy STEM sentences we are focusing on are:

Perhaps… because…

It is clear that… because…

My view is that/in my opinion… because…

In my opinion… furthermore… however…

Because of… I think that…

I know that… therefore i…

I predict that… but perhaps…

If… then… 



As a school, we use Class Dojo to communicate and inform parents and carers about the learning experiences of our children, as well as important information and updates within the school. We also use Dojo as a reward system whereby children earn Dojo Points and at the end of each week, a child is awarded with the Dojo Champion certificate in our Achievement Assembly.
