Hello and welcome to our class page for 5M and 5L.

We would like to give you all a warm welcome back to school after the Christmas break! On this year 5 page, you will find information about current topics, news, updates regarding special events and Knowledge Organisers corresponding to the relevant topics for each term.


PE for year 5 pupils is on a Monday and pupils are expected to bring in their PE kits to change in school and then return them home on that day.


Homework and spellings are set electronically for pupils on Friday using the Google Classroom. If pupils do not have access to an electronic device at home paper based work can be sent home. Pupils will all have been given a home reading record and reading book. Pupils are expected to read at home at least four times a week and fill in their reading record which should be brought into school every day. The website below is the Google Classroom support link which will help pupils to log into their Google Classroom accounts if you are experiencing any problems.


Pupils have been given their login details to access our school learning apps at home. They can use Lexia and the MyOn e-library to revise their reading skills while Mathletics and Time Table Rockstars can be used to practise their mathematical skills and times tables.

This half term we will be looking at: 

English: We will be writing reports about the Viking raids on Britain and writing our own Viking saga.

Maths: Our topic for maths begins by looking at fractions and then moving onto converting between and ordering fractions, decimals nad percentages.

History: Would the Viking do anything for money? In this topic we will explore the origins of the Vikings and uncover the reasons for their invasion of Britain through a variety of sources.

Science: Materials and their properties - In this topic we will explore different mixtures, solutions and reversible and irreversible changes. We will investigate how materials dissolve to form a solution and the properties of solids, liquids and gases.

Art: We will be creating our own sculptures based on local Manchester sculptor Ian Wild.

Music: Year 5 will be taking part in an African drumming workshop every Thursday with our specialist percussion teacher.

RE: Our focus question for RE is 'Are Sikh stories important today?' We will be learning about different texts from the Sikh religion and considering thier value in our lives today.

We look forward to the year ahead with you and are confident you will enjoy Year 5!
