Welcome to our Year 5 page. My name is Mr Bruce and I am the class teacher.

I am supported by a Learning Support Assistant, Miss Patterson.

In Year 5 we learn to give things a go and not feel worried when we make mistakes. We always try our best and are respectful to everyone. We understand we are getting older and are starting to be role models for the rest of the school. Our library day is Wednesday. We can sit and read in the library and borrow a book every week. We have many opportunities to read for pleasure.

Year 5 long term plan

PE is on Tuesdays. We provide a PE kit for every child but s/he will need pumps or trainers. We go swimming on Wednesday and all children need to bring a swimming costume, swimming hat and a towel in a bag.

Please ensure your child arrives in school at 8.45am every day in full school uniform and black shoes. Long hair must be tied back and plaited please.

If you have any questions about Y5, please make an appointment at the office to see Mr Bruce.

What have we been doing in Year 5?

Y5 enjoyed a very special visit from two authors this morning, Jasmine Richards and Emma Norry. Each child received a copy of ‘Happy Here’ which is a compilation of stories from black British authors and illustrators. The children read with the authors and were able to ask lots of questions. Jasmine and Emma were kind enough to sign the books for all the children. We thank the BookTrust for arranging the visit for us.


In reading we read different examples of free verse poetry and performed them to each other.

We designed and made flags in D.T. using a pulley system

Our Spanish teacher came in and we learned the names of different items of  clothing while we played games.

We created tessellation patterns in Maths and coloured them in using oil pastels.

We carried out an experiment in science to test the strength of different types of tape

We went on a trip to Calderstones Park to learn about the ancient history of our local area.
