Welcome to our Class 5 page. This year, our class teachers are Mr Booth and Mrs Balaam and working with them are Mrs Wroot, Mrs Tummons and Mrs Kavanagh. Here you will find all the information you need to help your make child progress, by supporting the learning that goes on in class and also giving you a window into what they are doing through the year.
We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk shows lots of good choices for individual year groups. We are using the 'Pathways' teaching approach from The Literacy Company, which provides a scaffold for children to base their own writing. It also ensures that they are exposed to a range of quality texts as they make they way through school.

As a school, we follow the White Rose Maths schemes of learning; please find the overview for the year below, it will help you support your child in knowing what concepts are taught throughout Year 5.

Here you'll find our topic web, as well as our 'subject on a page' or SOAP documents, which are designed to help with vocabulary and concepts, related to our topics through the term.
