Year Five

Welcome to year 5. We have two year 5 classes, one called Moore and the other called Nelson. Each class has their own teacher and we are lucky enough to have 2 teaching assistants to help us learn.

Miss White the teacher in 5M and Mr Leach is the Teaching Assistant. Miss Fitzgerald is the teacher in 5N and Miss Nanson is the Teaching Assistant.


Being in year 5 is much more challenging than year 4. We are in upper key stage 2 now so we know we are among the oldest children in the school. After all, it won’t be long before we need to start thinking about high school!

In year 5 we are great readers but know its important to keep reading at home and try to read a range of authors and genres. To help us do this and to help us become more independent readers, we read at home each day and ask an appropriate adult to sign our reading journal to confirm we have done this. We don’t need to read to an adult every night, we might just decide to read to ourselves but sometimes, its great to read to an adult too.

We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports so don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!

Our PE lessons are on Thursday.  You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.

We also have a guitar lesson each Wednesday where a specialist teacher comes to school to help us learn how to play. School loans us a guitar that we use to rehearse at home. We look after it and return it to school at the end of the year.

We have put some information together below so you can find out more about what we learn in year 5:
