Welcome to Year 5. Our teacher is Mrs. Aslett. We will also be taught some of the time by Mr. Saxilby. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. Lovely.

I really like the reading area in class because it looks nice and is comfy.

Year 5

Spring 1

Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!

Investigate the eight planets- Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.

Work scientifically to investigate gravity and other forces. Compare the time of day at different places on the Earth. Get in a spin, making models of the solar system and listen to haunting sounds of space-themed songs.

Then it’s three, two, one… BLAST OFF!

Y5 PE days are Mon and Thurs. so please send your child with full kit including trainers.

Forest school is on a Tuesday

Y5 have a spelling and times table text every Friday as well as having their reading diaries checked most days.

Information and reminders

  • We have PE with Mrs Anderson on Monday.
  • Spellings are given out at the start of the term and there will be weekly tests on a Friday.
  • Home learning is sent out at the beginning of term and can be brought in at any point throughout the term. We would like a minimum of one piece per term.
  • Children need to regularly practice their multiplication tables. By the end of Year 5 we should know all their multiplication facts and also the matching division facts. There are some fantastic games online to help practice these.
  • Reading tokens will be given to children who read 3 times. It is important that we try to read every night.
