Year 5

Hello and welcome to Otters!  Our teacher is Mrs Murphy and our teaching assistant is Mrs Amner.  Our classroom is bright, well-resourced and set up to help us learn and do our best.

We enjoy English and Maths every day. We have half-termly topics. This year these are Vikings and Anglo-Saxons; Marvellous Maps; Tudors; Magnificent Mountains; Victorians and Enough for Everyone.

Some of our subjects are taught by specialist staff including, Music, French, Art and Design Technology and PE.  We have PE lessons on Wednesday and Thursdays every week so please make sure the children come to school dressed in their PE kit on these days. 

Our homework consists of weekly spellings, Maths Whizz and TTRockstars .  We are also encouraged to read with an adult at least four times a week at home.  

Below you will find some planning documents so that you can see what we will be taught and our ‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.
