Mr Gibson

Year 4 teacher
phase leader

Miss Ellis

I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to back to Year 5 for Summer Term!

This term, the teaching staff in 5G are Mr Gibson as the teacher and Miss Darbyshire as the teaching assistant. We are looking forward to working with your children.

Using the internet at home to help further research the topics the children are learning about at school would be a great aid for the children’s learning.

Children will require their PE Kit on a Monday for their PE lesson - please ensure your children have appropriate footwear for this (trainers.)

All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. It is important that you listen to child reading at home at least 3 times per week and record this in their reading records. It will be helpful to ask your child questions about the text your child has read. Having an adult listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading. Home reading diaries are excellent ways of communicating progress/concerns regarding your child’s reading between parents/guardians and staff in school and we look forward to using them effectively with you.

Children need to continue to practice their times tables knowledge at home so that they are completely confident in the use of their facts up 12 x 12 and can apply them in their Mathematics.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected to be returned by the Monday. In addition to this, spellings will be given out on a Monday, and then will be tested on a Friday.


Children will be learning about narrative writing in class this term. They will be learning about how to write a journey story. Our inspiration for this topic is the book Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. The children will study the text in great detail and use it to inspire their reading.


The children will be learning about place value and improving their skills in place value up to one million, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and using and applying these skills in practical problems solving situations. They will also be learning about prime numbers, multiples and factors of numbers. Children will be learning about the properties of angles in shapes. 


The children will be learning about Earth and Space and will be carrying out investigations over the course of the half-term


Children will be learning about coding and also undertaking learning to provide a greater knowledge and depth over E-Safety.  


We will be learning about the topic Star Gazers in our theme work this time. This will include learning about our solar system and the space race that took place between the United States of America and Russia. 


Children will be learning about Places of Worship and Islam in Religious Education.


Children will be partaking in PE lessons every Monday.


Children will be learning about a variety of different topics in Spanish - particularly focusing on school life. 


Children will be receiving specialist music lessons during this term.
