Christ at the heart of all we do

Welcome to Year 5 Class


Key Information

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.


The children have settled really well into Year 5 despite the new challenges. They are adapting well to the routines of new seating plans, extra hand washing and playing in their Year 5 'bubble'. We should all be really proud of the resilience they are demonstrating! Also, they have made me feel very welcome at Christ the King and I am thoroughly enjoying teaching them.


We are currently studying the Geography of England but in a couple of weeks our big Topic will be looking at the Spanish Armada for History in relation to conflict and peace.


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 heping 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!
