Year 5 2023 - 2024

Mrs Hughes

Class Teacher

Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Hughes teaches Class 5, alongside Mrs Simeone. Mrs Simeone will be teaching Class 5 on a Monday afternoon.

This half term, we are studying North America in Geography. Our Science unit is Forces and our RE focus is Creation.

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

In English we are studying the book ‘Queen of the Falls’ by Chris Van Allsburg.  The story is based around the Niagara Falls and ties in nicely with our Geography topic. We will also be learning about inspirational women in our Reading book; Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls.


Maths Homework will be given out on Fridays and returned on  Wednesday, ready for marking in the lesson.

SPaG Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and returned on Mondays ready for marking in the lesson.


The children will be given new spelling lists 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.


We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!
