Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!



Spring 2017


Happy New Year! Our topic this half term is entitled ‘Earthlings'. Science is our lead subject this half term. We will be studying Earth and Space.


Our teaching assistants are Mrs Limmer and Mrs Storton.  Mrs Cornthwaite teaches P.E and Music on Thursday afternoons. Miss Ahmed is working in our class as a trainee teacher until February half term.

There are various multiplication and division activities at Primary ResourcesTeaching Time or Teaching Tables, which will be useful in assisting children in their mathematics work. Please see the link at the top of this page for information on the Year 5 Curriculum.


We follow the Lancashire Mathematics and English planning. In our English lessons we will be looking at Science Fiction and we will also learn how to write a non-chronological report.

In mathematics we will begin by looking at place value and decimals.  We will then move on to written addition and subtraction.  We will also be looking at angles and perimeter.  Please see our Spring (1) class curricular letter for more information.


PE will normally be on Thursdays and Fridays, so please ensure PE kits are brought in then.  Chorley School Sports Partnership will teach gymnastics on Friday afternoons.

Homework shall be given on a Friday and is expected back the following Friday.  The spelling and times tables tests take place on Friday mornings.
