Year 5 – Oak Class
Welcome to Year 5.
We have been working on destination outer space since January – this was going to run up until Easter. While you are at home, why don’t you have a look and see if there is anything else that you could do towards the topic that we haven’t covered due to the school closure. This is our Destination outer space topic web for lots of space-related ideas.
As school is closed we would still like you to maintain a level of education whilst at home. Please use the links on this page under Useful Links to find some different activities. Have fun!!!
Over the following weeks we will be updating this page on a regular basis so please make sure you keep coming back to have a look at what exciting tasks we have in store for you!
Don’t forget that Ms Jennings and Mrs Bowden are still on hand to answer any questions you may have so please feel free to email us.
Staff working in Year 5 are:
Ms Jennings (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday)
Mrs Bowden (Thursday and Friday)
Mrs Ingham (Monday)
Mrs Moore (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning)

Please see our closure letter to understand what the children have been told in regards to the school closure.
During this time of uncertainty, Ms Jennings and Mrs Bowden will continue to work together to make sure that the children have plenty to do that is related to work in school.
Don’t forget that it is still really important to have a structure to the day and to regularly get fresh air and exercise.

Supporting Your Child’s Learning Journey at Home
Below, please find the Statutory Spellings for Y5/6. All children should be aiming to spell all of these words by the end of Y6.
Parents often tell us that they struggle to find age-appropriate books that appeal to children as they reach upper KS2.
Please see our suggested reading lists to get your children inspired.
