Welcome to 5H! Year 5 will be taught by myself, Miss Hoey and will be supported by our helpful teaching assistants, Mrs Davey, Mrs Tighe and Mrs Barrie. Our PE sessions will be carried out on Wednesdays and children will be expected to have a full school PE kit available each week as part of their school uniform.
Homework folders will be sent home on a Friday and will contain spelling practise, maths homework and a writing/grammar task. Homework folders should be returned by Wednesday. It is vital that children are encouraged to complete and return their homework on time in order to prepare them for their transition into Y6 and the increased workload at high school in the near future. In addition to this, encouraging your child to read at home will benefit them massively as this year we will be working on reading for endurance and speed. To give them a helping hand along the way, regular encouragement to read and discussing or questioning them about what they are reading would be really beneficial and much appreciated!
Autumn Term - Festivals of Colour
This term Thorn will be focusing on religions and festivals around the world. As part of this theme, Y5 will be delving into Judaism and its yearly celebration of Simchat Torah. Watch this space for updates on what we get up to!
Our lovely Jewish visitor - Amy
As part of out theme, we have been exploring the Jewish religion and the festival Simchat Torah. We have researched suitable kosher foods which would be appropriate to cook as part of celebrating Simchat Torah festival. As a result, we have cooked our own cheesy potato latkes! They were a cheesy delight!

Year 5 have been learning about teeth and digestion. We know about the types of teeth we have and what movements they make. We have also looked at teeth in animals and have started to understand how their teeth types can teach us about their diet! Today we learnt what happens after our teeth have crushed our food, by acting out the the rest of the jobs in the digestive system!
Wow how lucky are we! Our fabulous support assistant, Mrs Davey, has treated us this afternoon! She has harvested the potatoes out of the Y5 planter and has cooked them into a delectable vegetable soup for us to enjoy! We are all ready for Harvest!
Our school has had an amazing visit from a group of children from the Bethany project! They were really humbling and made us appreciate the things that we have and that we should be grateful for the loves ones around us. Their choir was absolutely amazing! Have a look below!

Y5 had a ball at the KS2 Christmas party! We played pass the parcel, Christmas corners and Miss Hoey's favourite, THE CHOCOLATE GAME! Take a peek at some of our photos!
