Winscombe Primary School

Class 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Our class teacher is Miss Perry.


We have lots of helpers in our class. Our brilliant teaching assistants are Mrs Horwood, Mrs Griffin and Mrs Mclean. We also have Mrs Hetherington on a Tuesday morning to help us with Maths. We have Music lessons with Mrs Worthy and French lessons with Mrs Harding.


We also have lots of help from parents and extended family members too...a huge thank you to Mr Cheetah who comes and hears us read every week.



Things you need to know!


Every day you need to remember to bring to school:


  • Book bag with reading record
  • PE kit
  • Water bottle
  • Lunch


We have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday. However we do have events at other times and sometimes we need to adjust our timetable, so make sure your PE kit it always in school!


Homework is given out throughout the week.

Monday: Maths (due in on Friday)

Thursday: Spellings

Friday: English (due in on Tuesday)

At times this may be changed to a piece of Topic work.


Have a look at what we are learning...

Term 1 and 2

In Year 5 we started the term by doing a mini topic on the Circus. We performed the poem The Circus Parade by Katharine Pyle to the school. The children thought of their own actions within their groups and brought in their own props. We think the party poppers made our performance go with a bang! We have been doing lots of mark making and are currently finishing off our art work for a display. It looks fantastic so far - check back here soon to see the finished results. 


We are focusing on the theme of determination this term. James in our class set us off to a brilliant start with this quote to inspire us:


"Once you've done it once, it's not so tricky."


Who knows what you can achieve if you set your mind to it and have a go?


We are now zooming into Space! We will be acting out the movement of the Sun, Earth and Moon. We will create our own quizzes on Space and stage a quiz show. We are reading a selection of books, looking at non-fiction books and doing a book study of "George's Secret Key to the Universe" written by Lucy and Stephen Hawking.


Come back soon to check what else we have been up may get to fly away on an adventure with us!
