Year 5 2023 - 2024

Mrs Hughes

Class Teacher

Happy New Year, Year 5!

Mrs Hughes teaches Class 5, alongside Mrs Simeone. Mrs Simeone teaches the class on a Monday afternoon.

This half term, we are studying the Anglo Saxons through to the Viking Invasion in History.

Our Science unit is Changes of Materials and our RE focus is Inspirational People.

PE will take place on Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor) and we will be focusing on gymnastics and football this half term.  Remember the children come dressed in their PE kit on those days.

In English we are studying the book ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ by Joe Todd-Stanton.  The story is based around the the mythology of the Norse Gods so will link to our History unit. Our Reading book also links to this theme; Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman (the same author as our Reading book last half term).


Homework for both Maths and SPAG or Reading will now be given out on a Friday and expected to be completed and in school for the following Wednesday, ready to mark on Friday.

The children will be learning new spelling rules weekly.  Although there will be no formal spelling test, the children will be given opportunities in school to practise their spellings and to apply new spelling rules to their writing. 


Children are expected to read out loud to an adult and be questioned on the text 4 times a week. This will be recorded in the children's diary and checked every week. The children will continue to bring their diaries and reading books home every day. Thank you for hearing them read and discussing the text with them - we really do appreciate your support.
