Welcome to Year 5 with Mrs Hall and Mrs Moore


This half term, Year Five are reading:


Brightstorm is the story of twins- Maudie and Arthur who are devastated by the news that their father, a daring explorer, has died in a failed attemt to reach South Polaris. But a mysterious clue leads the twins to question the story they've been told. To find the truth, they must undertake the journey of a lifetime! We will also use this text to inspire our writing: New Reports and Diary Recounts.

Welcome to our Year 5 Class page. 

This page will be updated every half term to help keep you up to date with the topics we will be working on in class. We will also post: links to helpful websites to support our learning, parent newsletters and a copy of the spellings for the half term. 


The children can bring a bookbag to school to put their homework, snack, reading diary and reading book in. NO RUCKSACKS.

If children want to bring a water bottle to school it must be named and only contain water. It will come home every night to be washed and refilled.

PE is on Wednesday.
