Year 5







                         Miss Meadows (Teacher / TA)               Mrs Lewitzky (Teacher)


Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page.

The teachers are Mrs Meadows (Monday to Friday)  and Mrs Lewitzky  (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).

As we go through the year you will be learning all about the Anglo –Saxons and how they settled in the United Kingdom, further developing your mapping skills.

In the Spring term, we will look at space, the planets and the moon, whilst learning about the golden age of Islam.

In the Summer term we will study the lifecycle of plants and animals in the rainforests and how important the rainforest is to the world.  The ancient Greeks will finish us off for the year as we head into our own sports day!

Along the way, we’ll be playing lots of games to help us learn, lots of art and DT to improve our skills and lots of PE to keep us fit. 

If you want to know more about what we will learn in detail, take a look at the Year 4 curriculum document on this class page and then the subject pages too.

If you have any questions, mums or dads can always talk to us when they drop you off or pick you up, but they can also message us through the ‘Seesaw’ app, where we will be sharing all the exciting and wonderful things you do in school.


For your information:


P.E. days - Tuesday and Wednesday

Please ensure children have their full P.E kits and trainers in school on these days. If children are unable to take part in P.E lessons please let Mrs Melton or Mrs Lewitzky know.



In the autumn term year 5 will attend weekly swimming lessons provided by the West Lancashire School Sport Partnership.



English and Maths homework will be set each week. This will be given out on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

The children have Guided Reading sessions and log the chapters they are expected to read for the next session(s).

Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday (including words from the Year3/4 list).

All this should be recorded in each child’s homework diary.

 Please could a parent sign the homework diary to indicate that your child has completed all their homework (this is in preparation for secondary school). 

All children are expected to read each night to an adult who can see what the child is reading to monitor comprehension and pronunciation.

Thank you
