Welcome to Year 5 – Y5AF

Our staff for 2018/19:

Miss Farrell with Teaching Assistants Mrs Wheatley and Mrs Fowler

Welcome to Y5AF! The children have had a fantastic first term in Y5. They have gained a breadth of knowledge by exploring the question “Does change always lead to progress?” During this topic, they visited the Jorvick Viking Centre and discovered lots of the Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Vikings. Our outcome at Firth Park Library in which we told our stories to our parents, was a huge success!

During this term, we will be learning about Earth and Space and exploring the question “What is my place in the universe?”

Find out more by looking at our learning journey.

By the end of the topic, we hope to be Space experts and hold our own science exhibit!


In maths, we will be focusing on the key skills in multiplication and division and fractions. The children are enjoying working in their maths groups and are keen to develop their arithmetic skills, as well as deepen their learning in applying their skills to a wide variety of problem solving and reasoning challenges.


In literacy, we will be writing our very own information booklet that is going to be displayed at the science museum in Leicester.


In regards to our timetable, we have PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons so please remember to bring your PE kit. We have shared the timetable with parents and children, so any queries please get in touch.


If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school. If this is not possible you can also ring the school office.
