Children in Year Five are in split into two classes5A and 5Alpha. There are two class teachers in this year group, Miss Fitch and Miss King, as well as Mr Taylor, one of our Assistant Headteachers, and Mrs O’Connor, who supports the morning lessons. Group reading is supported by Mrs Howard on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
During the morning, learning is mainly focused on developing children as readers, writers and mathematicians. Our afternoon sessions support children to use their morning learning as well as developing their skills and knowledge in other curriculum areas: Geography, History, Religious Education (R.E), Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and Computing. Over the week, children are taught by specialist teachers for Art, Physical Education (P.E), French and Science.
We believe that children learn best when their parents/carers and teachers work closely together. Because of this, we are always happy to discuss your child’s progress - just pop and see us at the end of the school day. Our doors are always open!

Year 5 have the opportunity to attend an outdoor residential at the Old Vicarage Centre near Kidderminster in early July.
Homework, which helps children practise their learning, is set on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. It will usually involve a Literacy and a Maths activity along with weekly spellings. Children are also expected to read daily and record this in their reading diaries which will be checked daily. They will also be expected to learn their times tables in order to ensure that by the end of Year 5 they have a rapid recall of these.
The following strands will be covered across the three terms:
Times tables will also be practised on a daily basis alongside the above units.
For more information about the strands please click the National Curriculum link at the bottom of this page.
