Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


My name is Mrs. Jolly and I am the class teacher for Year 5. In Key Stage 2, we are so lucky to have support from Mrs Southern, Ms Conroy, Mr Thomson and Mr. Westwood.

Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year for the children. In Upper Key Stage 2, children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons and provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the challenges of year 6.  

This year, your child will enjoy a wide and varied range of lessons. Our Creative Curriculum topics include: Vikings and Anglo Saxons, Railways and Benin. Our Science will see them journeying further afield into OUTER SPACE - but don't worry, they'll be back for home time! In Maths, they will continue to develop their skills in number, shape and measures and use them to solve real life problems. In Music, the children will be learning to play the ukulele with me every Tuesday afternoon, as well as improving their singing and percussion skills. 

Our P.E. sessions will be held on Thursday afternoon (Autumn Term) , so please ensure that your child comes into school in their kit on that day. 

Please call in after school should you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning.
