Year 5 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Year 5

Your teachers are Miss Robinson & Miss Howes

As in all classes across the school, we learn a lot every day. Each morning, we have whole class reading sessions covering a wide variety of texts and topics. The questions and discussions also incorporate PSHE topics. We study Maths and English so we can become better mathematicians, readers and writers. Everyday, we take time to pray and reflect on the values we are focusing on this term, which are kindness and honesty. Here at All Saints we believe that you can’t be ‘too kind.’ We consider others and always try to show a caring, generous and unselfish attitude. We always try to tell the truth and make the right choices. We also pray for other people in the world who are struggling to find a safe place to live and work.

As well as Maths and English, we study Religious Education, Science, Humanities (History & Geography) Computing and P.E to name a few. Our main topic for Autumn term is ‘Chocolate’ linking to the book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ as well as Geography (Trading) and Science (Changing states)

In our Maths lessons, there is a real focus on knowing our times tables off by heart. By the end of the year we will know up to 12 times 12 without even thinking! Parents and guardians, you could even test your children to help them become an even more marvellous mathematician. Why not say your multiplication tables together while walking to school?

Reading and understanding a variety of texts is important for our children. We recommend at least 20 minutes of reading a night. We also have subscriptions to Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rock stars for children to access at any time at home. Homework  will be sent home every Thursday with full instructions in the orange Homework Book.This is due in on Tuesday.


Being healthy is important to us all. We drink plenty of water during the day and we can bring in a healthy snack to eat at playtime.  You can access school tuck shop for a £1 a week for a piece of fruit each day. We also run our daily mile and take mini movement breaks between lessons where we can.

If any parents or carers would like any help to support their child outside of school, especially through reading or maths, please feel free to ask questions or run past some new ideas you may have.

We hope that you enjoyed reading about our class and there will be opportunities for you to come and see us working in class soon!
