Welcome to Year 5

Miss Barnes and Miss Dobson would like to welcome you to year 5. We have a jam packed year ahead with some very exciting topics to explore. Check out our class links for more information on our curriculum.


We know that you may be nervous or worried about coming back to school, and that's fine!  Please let your teacher or an adult know if you have any questions or concerns and we will do our best to help you.


Our Library day is Thursday. Please make sure you have your library book at school every day as we read in class most days.

Children are encouraged also to read at home!


Maths homework is given out every Tuesday to be returned the following Tuesday.

English homework is given on a Thursday for the following week.


There are no repercussions for children who do not return it, but there will be an opportunity on a Friday afternoon to complete the given task.

Geography challenge!

It's tough, but children are challenged to try and memorise the following facts:

  • The countries in Europe
  • Cities in the UK
  • English counties

These quizzes are a fun way for children to practise and develop their knowledge.

There is no time limit to this challenge and children are invited to build their knowledge at home and school throughout the year.

Miss Dobson is a big fan of the US States quiz too, if you fancy a challenge!
