Year 5 – Oak Class

Welcome to Year 5. This is an exciting time  year for both the children and the adults that work in the year group. This is  my favourite time of year – getting to know the children, starting exciting new topics…

Staff working in Year 5 (up until Christmas) are:

Ms Jennings (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday)

Mrs Ward (Thursday and Friday)

Mr Summers (Monday)

Mrs Moore (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning)

Our Autumn term topic is: Anglo Saxons

Welcome to your first term in Y5.

Please take a look at our topic web to get a flavour of what we will be doing: Saxons and sagas Autumn 2019

Useful Information

PE will usually be on Tuesday and Thursday (+ competitive sports every third Friday).  Please make sure that P.E. kits are in school at all times. We are swimming on Thursday at the moment.


Homework grids have been sent home. They are pasted  in the front of homework books.  Homework is due in on a Wednesday.

In addition to completing an activity from the grid children are expected to read regularly (at least three times per week) and spend time on both tables and spellings.
