Year 5

Teaching Team – Mrs M Driver, Mrs E Clerc, Mrs Allan and Mrs Godwin.


Welcome to our Year 5 web page – we hope you find all the information you require here.

Week Commencing 9.1.20

English – In our morning grammar starters we are learning how to use relative clauses and modal verbs in our writing. We have watched a promotional advert from Samsung to discuss the slogan  #dowhatyoucan’t. We have discussed the effectiveness of the advert and the slogan. From the advert we have written a headline for the maiden flight of an Ostrich! We are using drama to develop the voice of characters and then writing dialogue using inverted commas correctly. The children will also write a diary entry from the point of view of the ostrich or of the on looking crowd for the day the ostrich took it’s first flight.

Spelling tests will be on Tuesday morning.

Maths – We are continuing to work on methods of long multiplication, moving onto factors and prime numbers next week. The children will be bringing home work on long multiplication this weekend so they can continue to embed the methods we have covered in class.


There has been a change of timetable for the spring term.

Outdoor games will be on Monday afternoon. Over the next few weeks, we will be playing rugby and netball. Can children please have warm and suitable outdoor kit with them for this lesson. Indoor P.E will be on Thursday afternoon where the children will be doing dance. Swimming will be every Thursday for Mrs Driver’s  class until further notice.

Topic – We will be introducing our new geography topic on North America. In Science we will be looking at forces. The children will look at the force of gravity and the difference between weight and mass.

In French we will be learning parts of the body.

Our Art work will be colour mixing linking to complimentary and tertiary colours.

We are always happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
