Year 5

A New Beginning

We have started off the new school year with plenty of hard work and excitement in our first two week back in school.

In literacy we have looked at different legend tales and started to craft our own legend too!

Maths has seen the class investigating their knowledge of place value and using it to establish number order and to help with rounding numbers also.

In RE we have looked at our talents and qualities and how they help us to live our lives and how they can also have an impact on those around us too.

Guided reading has been introduced through reading texts all about legends.

Science has involved the whole class venturing into the forest school so that we could identify the changes that are happening in the natural world during a change in the seasons. We will revisit the forest school to make a further comparison of the changes later on in the term.

Something different - All Year 5 Pupils were given an introduction to basic life support by the South Ribble Heart Start team. All children thoroughly enjoyed the interactive demonstrations and the hands on elements of the training involving the resuscitation dummies.


A super start to the year!



As always, PE kit, including outdoor kit, will need to be in school at all times during the week unless specified. 

Can I also ask that swimming kit is clearly labelled and in school on a Tuesday for our session on Tuesday afternoon.

Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for testing the following Wednesday. Home readers and diaries should be in school every day for checking. Children should be writing at least three comments a week about the book they are reading, could I please ask for parents to also check and sign the diary to confirm children are reading at home. Many thanks for your support in this.   


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me or another member of the class team.
