Welcome to Year 5

In Year 5, all of our classes are named after JK Rowling’s Harry Potter characters. Miss Cardwell’s class is Dobby (5DB), Mrs Mason’s class is Hedwig (5HW) and Mr Elyard and Mrs Freeman’s class is Dumbledore (5DD). We also have Mrs Kiloh-Munns, Mrs Javed, Mrs Calmic and Mrs Manning working in our year group to help support our learning.

Our blog will become a digital scrap book of our time in school so make sure that you keep checking it.

The Year 5 Team 

Some important information for you:
PE days – Monday and Thursday
Library day – Tuesday (during school hours only)
Optional homework – Presented in class and house points awarded on Wednesday

In addition to working very hard on our accelerated reader points to earn Friday Muftis we teach reading in class using 'Steps to Read.'

We use different extracts from different texts every week, from Lewis Carrol's Jabberwocky, The Nowhere Emproium to the 1962 front cover of the Guardian describing the moon landing. 
Here are some of the books we have used this year so far. 


Y5 had a visit from Charlotte from the interactive museum at Silverstone. We learnt about the history of the track, and looked at and compared some historical photographs of drivers and cars. We also looked at some tyres, (one of which was used by Lewis Hamilton to drive to the grid in Abu Dhabi) race suits, and then look at Carbon Fibre and Kevlar components. We had a brilliant, scientific morning.
