Welcome to Year 5!

Thank you for looking at our year group page! Here you will find information about what we are learning about and you can see our learning in action on the class blog. Weekly learning will be shown via the Class Dojo individual pages. If you have difficulty accessing Class Dojo, please contact your class teacher.

In the files section you will find the Year 5 Age Related Expectations for Reading, Writing and Maths.

The words in the statutory spelling list that the children are expected to learn by the end of Year 6, can also be found in this section.

We have also uploaded a 'Year 5 Recommended Reading List' - this list includes 100 fantastic picture, fiction and non-fiction books that are recommended for Year 5 children. We have a lot of these books in school for the children to enjoy and borrow. Please find extra information about each individual book by clicking on this link.

We have uploaded Mathematics activities that you may wish to do with your child at home. These are related to reasoning and problem solving, an important aspect of the National Curriculum for all year groups. In addition, Demon Times Tables can be accessed by the red link.

You may also find some of the learning based websites below particularly useful to share with your children.

Miss Grimshaw, Miss Jackson and Mr Mooney

Who will you meet?

There are three classes in Year 5 taught by Miss Grimshaw (5LG), Miss Jackson (5JJ) and Mr Mooney (5CM). Other adults that support Year 5 are Mrs Durbin, Mrs Hewitt and Mrs Hall. We will also be supported by Mrs Adams and Mrs Brazil. On a Monday afternoon the children are taught French (Mrs Preece), P.S.H.E. (Mrs Orzechowski) and P.E. (Stockport County). Only two classes will have P.E. on a Monday afternoon and the third class will have theirs on a Friday afternoon. Your class teacher will communicate weekly which P.E. slot your child's class will be having, via Class Dojo.

Our Topics




Were the Anglo-Saxons raiders, traders or invaders?

In the Autumn term we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons in History. This will also link with our local area study project in Geography, 'Did the Anglo-Saxons visit Cheadle Hulme?'

We will immerse ourselves into the topic, exploring 'archeological' sites, listening to Anglo-Saxon folklore by the campfire and exploring Cheadle Hulme.

After October half term we will continue to learn about the Anglo-Saxons but we will be exploring Space in our English and Science lessons.

We also have our exciting residential trip to Colomendy in October! (more details to follow in September)

Were the Vikings victorious and vicious?

During the Spring term we will face the invasion of the Vikings and follow the Lindisfarne attack which we will reinact and write newspaper reports about. In our Geography lessons we will leave the United Kingdom and explore the countries of Europe, Asia and North America with the focus of, 'How far did the Vikings travel?'

Alongside action writing and making Viking boats, we will have the opportunity to take part in the Young Voices event. Currently this will be taking place in Manchester Arena but may happen remotely. We will also start computer programming in Computing, after up-skilling our typing skills in the Autumn term.



Why did the Mayan civilisation come to an abrupt end?

In the Spring term we will move on from English history and look at the history of Central America, exploring the Mayan civilisation which was happening at the same time as the Anglo-Saxon and Viking eras.

We will link our learning of the Mayans by exploring South America in Geography and also putting our entrepreneurial skills to the test. Exploring the Mayan's love of chocolate, we will have a go at making our own, advertising our products and selling them at the Summer Fair.

During our English lessons we will devle into the depths of the rainforest as well as travel to North America, exploring a range of texts.
