Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Class Teacher   Mrs. Farnsworth
Teaching Assistant   Mrs Gudgeon


We have homework for KS2 to embed learning in the following areas:

  • Reading
  • Spellings
  • Tables

We ask for reading books to be in school every day. Please could parents sign daily to say your child has done at least 10 minutes reading a night?

Weekly spellings to learn are given out weekly alongside a weekly test. We will also share the spellings via seesaw. The children can practice the spellings via the ‘Spelling shed’  app for which your child has an individual login.

We also encourage the use of the ‘TT Rockstars’ app which allows your child to learn times tables in a fun way, again your child has an individual login for this.

If you are experiencing any problems using any of these apps do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you out. For those children without access to a tablet, phone or computer we provide extra opportunities during the normal school day.

PE kits

We have weekly PE sessions. Please have PE kits and Games kits in school every week. Our PE days are MONDAY and FRIDAY


Mrs Wildeman will be taking year 5 to teach them Science.


Our topics for this year are; WWII, Early civilisations, Amazon Adventures and World Wide Wonders.


In school the children are placed into ‘houses’; these are Pendle, Hambledon, Coppice and Bowland.

Children will be regularly given points in class to reinforce good behaviour.

We believe in working in partnership with parents is the best way for your child to feel safe and happy at school. No issue is too small so do not hesitate to contact us. However please remember that the end of the school day is very busy so if you need to talk to staff for a length of time please make an appointment.
