Year 5 - Mrs Price


    Mrs Price teaches 4 days a week so, on a Thursday, pupils are taught by Mrs Nixon. From January we welcomed a teacher in training to join our class team – Miss Bousfield. Our class motto is: KEEP SMILING! 



    We are going to continue learning about rivers this half term in Geography. We will be learning about The River Nile ready to start our history topic of Ancient Egypt in Summer term. Why not do your own research at home? You could find out about some facts about The River Nile as well as when and how the Ancient Egyptians lived. 

    In Science, we will continue learning about forces, including gravity, water resistance and friction. 

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

  • PE

    In the Autumn term we have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.

    Whenever possible these sessions 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.  


  • 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. 

  • 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, including the Y4 objectives that would have been covered during the spring and summer terms when they completed home learning. We will be focusing on topic related spellings and common mistakes as well as non-negotiable spelling rules and patterns.

    Spellings will be practised regularly in school and a copy will be sent home each week 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. 

    Spellings can be found here. Group 1: Y5 spelling overview spring 2  
    Group 2: Y4 spellings Spring 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:


  • 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.
