Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Expectations are high – we take our academy values very seriously because we understand just how crucial they are to achieving lifelong success. We also understand how important it is to take risks in our learning; nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The Year 5 Team

The teachers in our year group are Miss Wilson and Miss Thompson who are supported by Mrs Darlington and Mrs Gittins.

Over the course of this year, we will be focussing on equipping the children with knowledge and skills they need for the real world.

In addition to the Big 5 (Positivity, Bouncebackability, Knowing Your Impact, Setting HUGE Goals and Personal Responsibility), we have established our own class charter that is to be followed to ensure a happy and productive learning environment is maintained. Independent learning will also be encouraged this year with the aim that children feel confident enough to take on new challenges and push themselves further.

We look forward to a year of hard work and fun and watching every member of Year 5 flourish and grow. We truly believe that every child has the right to achieve individual excellence.

Your Teachers’ Favourite Books

Miss Wilson – Clockwork (Phillip Pullman)

Tick, tock, tick, tock! Some stories are like that. Once you’ve wend them up, nothing will stop them …
A tormented apprentice clock-maker, a deadly mechanical knight in armour – and the sinister Dr Kalmenius, who some say is the devil … Wind up these characters, fit them into a story on a cold winter’s evening, with the snow swirling down, and suddenly life and the story begin to merge in a peculiarly macabre – and unstoppable – way.

We hope that you find the information that we have shared on our class page useful, but if you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of our team, please email and a Year 5 teacher will be in touch!
