Year 5

Hello and welcome to our Year 5 webpage!  Our teachers are Miss Harvey and Mr Walsh (5H), Mrs Prest  (5P) and Mr Davies (5D). We are also supported by Mrs Davis and Miss Hayward in 5H, Miss Day in 5P and Mrs Al Disi 5D.

Summer 1 2019

Our topic this half-term is "New York, New York". We will be learning about the wonders of this fascinating city. 


We will be reading Rick Riordan's 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' and will be creating our own demi-god characters.  We will be learning to describe using figurative language, build an atmosphere, and use dialogue to move our narrative forward.

The children are loving taking part in the Times Tables Rockstars challenge! Each child has been given a log-on for the website: They are able to practise their times tables while playing tournaments, and then in class they will be tested four times a week on their allocated times tables for that week. The aim of this incentive is to help children answer problems quickly. As they get quicker they will be given a different 'rock status'.
