Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


There are 24 children in Year 5 taught by Miss Riding.  The children are supported by Miss Hark and Mrs Smithies.


The children have PE on  a Monday and Thursday so need to remember to have a full and proper kit in school.


In Year 5 homework is given out on a Friday and is due back on Wednesday.  The children also take home spellings on a Friday for a test on Tuesday.


The children have regular opportunities through the week to change their home reading books, once their home/school diary has been signed.

This half term, Year 5 have been very busy.  We have designed and made our own healthy snack bars.  We made the packaging, thinking carefully about how to attract children, our persuasive writing skills came in very handy.  We even made adverts for our snack bars!  We used our scientific knowledge when making decisions about ingredients, to ensure our snack bars had the right amount of nutrients. 


We thoroughly enjoyed reading many stories by Roald Dahl.  We investigated the characters in The Twits and the BFG.  This gave us ideas for our own Roald Dahl inspired stories which we than went on to illustrate in the style of Quentin Blake.
