Always Aiming High




Welcome back to your first term as Year 5.

As most of you will already know, this year Mrs Higginson and Mrs Evans will both teach Year 5. Mrs Higginson will be in class Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Evans will be in class Thursday to Friday. We will also be supported throughout the year by Mrs Baldwin - our fantastic HLTA!

Afternoon Sessions:

PE lessons will be taught on a Monday afternoon by our sports coach with the support of Mrs Higginson- so don’t forget those PE kits. Over the first two terms of the year, you will also go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon to the Ellesmere Port Sports Village, where you will be supported by both Mrs Baldwin and Miss Evans. You will also continue to have the chance to participate in competitions. 

Mrs Baldwin will teach you on a Wednesday afternoon and also for an hour on a Friday afternoon - when she will initially cover subjects such as swimming, music, French and P4C (Philosophy 4 Children).

During our first half term, we will focus on North America. Our topic will be led by our English book- Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg. In Geography, we will focus on locational and place knowledge –with the view to map out Annie’s journey (the ‘Queen’ from our book). Within science, we will look at animals, including humans, with a specific focus on describing the changes humans go through when developing to old age. To find out more please open our ‘Learning Leaflet’ using the links on the right.


Homework, Spellings and Reading

There will be two pieces of homework a week. Our Numeracy and Learning Log homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in on a Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period, such as a mini-project. Spelling lists will also be sent home at the beginning of a half term and are to be practised each week. It is important that you take the time to learn the spellings as it will impact on your English work. As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning, so we recommend that you read at home as much as possible and aim to change your book regularly. In addition to this, you will also have access to Times Tables Rockstars, which you can continue to use on a weekly basis.


So, let’s get ready for a fantastic year ahead!

This is your first term in upper key stage two so let’s show everyone how brilliant we are and be fantastic DREAM TEAM role models!
