Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5! We're really working hard now as we build on our learning from Year 4. We are really looking forward to the challenges this year will bring.

We have a PE session every week. PE is on Tuesdays and we must have our PE kit for the lesson. In Year 5, we also have a Swimming session on a Monday. We must remember our swimming kit otherwise we cannot take part in the swimming lesson.


We have a weekly music session with Mr Wilson, which will take place on a Tuesday, who will be working with us on several pieces of music, as we become more skilled with our brass instruments. Some of our class also take part in extra brass.


We are also taking part in the Oldham Pledge Programme are and enjoying building on our learning from last year’s Young Leaders’ Programme. This will enable us to take part in the wider school life and fulfil several pledges.


Our learning is through Learning Challenge questions and we have a number of questions which we investigate over the year. This year our questions are:

  • Were the Anglo-Saxons really smashing?
  • Where does rain come from?
  • How can we discover the wonders of Ancient Egypt?
  • Why should the rainforest be important to us all?


In English this year, we will be concentrating on Reading, in particular inference skills. In Maths, we will be focusing on the 4 operations and reasoning. In science, we will be exploring topics such as Space, Properties of materials and Forces. In RE, we will be studying the Understanding Christianity units. We are also looking forward to studying French and PSHE in more detail too.


In Year 5, our day starts at 8.50am. We also complete the daily mile every morning. We have a break in the morning when we can buy fruit and milk from the Snack Trolley at 11:00. We have our lunch at 12.20pm and then play out after we have eaten until 1.00pm. Our day finishes at 3.10pm.


Our teacher this year is Miss Clark and we are supported in our learning by Miss Senior and Mrs Beswick.


Artist in Residance visit

In Year 5, we will be focusing on the topic of Rainforests later on this year. To link in with this, the artist visited class for a day and focused on creating silhouettes and jungle settings using a range of materials such as paint and pencil crayons. The children really enjoyed the day and as you can see the results were high quality too!
