Year 5 - Mrs Price


    Mrs Price teaches 4 days a week so, on a Thursday, pupils are taught by Mrs Nixon. Our class motto is: KEEP SMILING! We are so proud of how well all the children have worked so far this academic year both in school and remotely; they are superstars! 



    We will be continuing learning about The Ancient Egyptians this term. Why not do some more of your own research at home? Share interesting facts with us in school and amaze us with your knowledge. We will be learning more about how the Ancient Egyptians lived as well as what attractions there are in Egypt for tourists to visit today. We will do some clay artwork linked to the Egyptians as well as lots of other interesting afternoon topic lessons. 

    In Science, we will be learning about animals including humans. This will involve learning about life cycles as well as reproduction. 

    Take a look at our Foundation Subject Long Term Plan for further details about our learning in Summer 2: Summer 2 LTP Y5

  • PE

    This term we have PE on a Monday, which will be athletics and on a Wednesday afternoon we will continue to go swimming. 

    Whenever possible the Monday session will be held outside, so please ensure that all children have a full PE kit including suitable footwear. 

    This includes a white T-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and PE shoes or trainers. Pupils may also bring a dark coloured hoodie to wear if they feel they need one. As we head into the warmer summer months, pupils may also wish to bring a sun hat to wear and sun cream should be applied before coming to school. 


  • Reading Books

    Reading books are sent home daily and should be returned to school on a daily basis also. Pupils can change their reading books as often as needed; we encourage them to read at home as often as possible. As a minimum requirement, pupils should read at least twice a week but every night would be even better! Your child can earn reading certificates for reading regularly at home so please fill in their home reading record whenever they read and ensure this is brought into school along with their reading book. Pupils are welcome to read any book and you can still sign their home reading record, including online books on the Oxford Owl website. 

    All pupils have a Reading Plus or a Lexia login; these are online reading programmes, designed to develop pupils reading fluency and comprehension. Pupils earn certificates by working through the levels. They access the programmes regularly in school but it is beneficial for their reading progress for them to be used at home as often as possible too. 

  • Spellings 

    Spelling is a really important part of our Year 5 work.  

    Pupils are learning Year 5 spelling patterns as well as revising previous spelling patterns as and when the need for these arise. We will be focusing on topic related spellings and common mistakes as well as non-negotiable spelling rules and patterns. Spelling interventions will take place for pupils who require them and these spellings will also be sent home for pupils to do further work on. 

    Spellings will be practised regularly in school and a copy of spellings will be sent home to allow children to also practise at home. Please ensure any spellings sent home for pupils to learn are worked on regularly so that pupils can improve week by week. The summer 2 overview has been sent home and spelling tests take place every Friday. 

    Y5 spellings can be found here: Year 5 Spellings Summer 2

    Pupils should also be working on the statutory spellings for their year group as well as any they still find tricky from Y3/4.
    These can be found here: Y3 and 4 words  Y5 and 6 words

    Spelling Shed should be used as part of pupils’ home learning on a regular basis: Logins have been sent home – along with Seesaw, Teams, Oxford Reading Owl and TTRS. If you have lost them – please contact Mrs Price via Seesaw or your child can ask her in school. 

  • Year 5 and 6 Statutory Spellings

    These are the spellings that your children will be learning this year. Please encourage them to practice at home as often as they can.
