Believe and Achieve

Year 5

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”
– A.A. Milne/Christopher Robin


In Year 5 our teacher is Miss Johnston and our amazing teaching assistant is Miss Clemmons. This year Class 5 are also very lucky to have a student teacher, Miss Banks,  supporting them with their learning. They want every child in the class to achieve their full potential and make good progress! In class 5 we love books and love to read for pleasure. We really enjoy our topic work – we can’t wait to be inspired and produce some fabulous pieces of writing and creative art work.

How your child is learning at home is very important. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the School, and we will help you as best we can.

Key Dates

This half-term we have some key dates coming up..

  • 9th December – Topic visitor in school relating to our local history work.



In our English  lessons this year we have explored how to write a recount and an argument text. This half term we will be exploring how to write a suspense narrative, based upon our class novel, ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ by Ross Mackenzie. We are looking forward to sharing some of our writing with you.. watch this space!



This half-term we are focusing on Multiplication and Division. Pupils will be developing their confidence at using formal calculation methods to multiply and divide numbers. This includes using the column method for multiplication and short division (bus stop method) for division.
