Year Five

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

Mr Matthews the teacher in Morpurgo and Miss Illingworth is the teacher in Rowling and the Teaching Assistants in year 5 are Mrs Rushworth and Miss Young.

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.

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.

What is the geographical impact of hosting a sporting extravaganza?

This half term, we will be taking a fascinating trip from right here in Yorkshire to all corners of the globe through the prism of sport. Children will be taking a case study approach to identify, examine and evaluate the differences in physical geography between various locations and the human geographical impact of various sporting phenomena including the Tour de Yorkshire and the Olympics in London and Rio!
