Christ at the Heart Of All We Do

Year 5 Class

In Year 5, we are taught by Miss Riley and we are supported by Mrs Thorley and Mrs Fell. When Miss Riley is completing her planning and preparation, the class are doing PE with Mr Ashworth and guitars with a guitar tutor.

We follow the school ethos 'Christ at the Heart of All We Do'  to ensure that we can complete our learning to the best of our ability.


Key Information

Reading Books

Reading books can be changed daily, but only if an adult has signed to say that their child has read and has finished their reading book. A house point will be reward when a book has been completed.

Children are to remember to put any books that need changing into the 'reading book changing box'.

If they are not put into the box in the morning they will  be changed on the following day.

Spelling Folders

Spelling folders will be sent home every Thursday. The spellings should be learnt at home throughout the week for the test on the following Thursday. Ideas for how to help learn spellings have been sent home and can be found below on this page.

Spelling folders will need to be handed back in every Thursday, so new words can be added for the following week. (Hand in Thursday – back out the same Thursday)


P.E. in the Summer term is on a Monday and Friday, please make sure that your child's full indoor and outdoor PE kit is in school at all times.


Children may be a piece of fruit for morning break time.

Water Bottles

Please send your child with a water bottle daily - this must be taken home, washed and returned each day.  The children have access to their bottles and are able to refill throughout the day if required


We are currently studying the Spanish Armada for History in relation to conflict and peace. Through this topic we will be looking in depth at the Tudors and the various threats they experienced to their reign.


We have begun an art project (led by the talented Mrs Fell) looking at different sculptors - particularly Paul Cummins in relation to his remembrance pieces of poppies. The children have now begun designing a 3D poppy and are thoroughly enjoying it! 


In Maths this week we have been focusing on mental and written strategies for addition. Ask your child what RAPA CODA Numbo stands for!

Here they are using counters to represent their calculations.

Here are some Maths website links that you could use at home. The children are particularly enjoying the 'daily ten' on the Topmarks website at the moment which is helping improve their mental strategies! (The numbers game from the tv show Countdown!)

Proud children! (They made a car with all the gadgets at after school club!
