Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page.

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 and compose our own sci-fi movie music score. We will also be 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!
We will be improving our physical skills and abilities throughout the year through P.E. sessions and running our mile-a day to keep us fit. In the Autumn term, we will also be taking part in ‘Bikeability’ where you will develop your bike-riding skills and learn how to cycle safely.
Along the way, we’ll be learning about various artists through Art and DT and enjoying some fantastic Forest School sessions where you will learn to make shelters, tie knots, build walls, use tools, make bow and arrows and build fires.
If you want to know more about what we will learn in detail, take a look at the Year 5 curriculum document on this class page and the subject pages too.
If you have any questions, parents can talk to us when they drop you off or pick you up but they can also message us through the ‘Seesaw’ app where we share all the exciting and wonderful things you do in school.
- Monday and Wednesday
Please ensure child has their full P.E kit and trainer in school on these days. If children are unable to take part in P.E lessons please let Mrs Meadows or Mrs Lewitzky know.
In the Autumn Term, Year 5 usually will attend weekly swimming lessons provided by the West Lancashire School Sport Partnership. We are currently unable to do this due to Covid precautions.
English and Maths homework will be set each week. This will be given out on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday.
The children have Guided Reading sessions where we share and discuss our group reading books and carry out various related tasks and activities. They will log the chapters they are expected to read for the next session(s) and make notes on their reading.
All children are expected to read each night to an adult who can see what the child is reading to monitor comprehension and pronunciation and sign their reading diaries.
Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday (including words from the Year 5/6 list).
We have several apps and websites for which pupils have their own unique log in and are expected to use at home to continue with their learning independently.
