welcome to year 5 

Welcome to Year 5.  Year 5's class teacher is Mrs Deighton, who is also the Deputy Headteacher and Safeguarding Lead for the school.

After an impressive first half-term, we are now working within our second half of the Autumn Term. The children in Year 5 are an absolute delight and we have already covered so much.  It is a pleasure to teach them.


Year 5 will be taught by and Mr Fitzgerald on a Wednesday afternoon (PE) and by Miss Eatherley on a Thursday afternoon (Geography and RE).

Our Topic this term is 'Light and Dark' and  we are also exploring the British Isles within our Geography.  This term, Year 5 are going to be making their own night lights and are extremely excited about this.  Our English focus this half-term is poetry, staring with 'The Lady of Shalott', exploring performance poetry and ending with 'The Snowman'

In maths, we will be looking at perimeter and area, multiplication and division. Each week we will also be working on learning our times tables. 

Homework will now be set on a Tuesday and should be handed in the following Monday.  There will also be a spelling test each Monday.  Children will be given spellings, a piece of grammar work and a piece of maths.  Please do ask if you are unsure of any of these tasks.  We would also encourage your child to read each evening, even if this is just a small amount - every bit makes a difference.

Children in Year 5 are now swimming every Friday morning.

As always, my door is always open and I am more than happy to discuss any concerns you may have (no matter how small they may be) - either pop into school to see if I am available or call to make a mutually convenient appointment.
