Glory Farm - Year 5

Welcome to the Year Five space!

Our teachers in Year 5 are Mrs M Gibson and Mrs A Perkins we are lucky to also have Mrs K Goodwin as part of our hard working and friendly team.

Our Learning

Terms 1 and 2 - Autumn Term

Our topic for the first term will be 'Battle of the Invaders'. We have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons, including who they were, where they came from, what daily life was like for them. To support our learning, we went to Hill End in October to be part of an Anglo-Saxon experience day. We also baked Anglo-Saxon bread. Here is a copy of our newsletter Autumn Term newsletter - Battle of the Invaders


Water Bottles – Please provide your child with a named water bottle daily.

Homework will be given out on Fridays and should be handed in on Wednesdays. 

Reading – It is your child’s responsibility in Year 5 to change their home reading book when they have finished reading it. They are given time at school to do this. We would like children to read at home for at least 20 minutes each day.

P.E – Both Year 5 classes are being PE taught by Ignite on a ThursdayThe children will also have a second lesson of P.E with their class teacher on a Wednesday, if they are not swimming. Over the two terms, the focus will be dance, including the Salsa and the Flamenco, and net and wall games. 

Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit consisting of shorts, a white t-shirt and a pair of trainers suitable for outdoors in school. Please ensure that this P.E kit is kept in school between Monday and Friday to ensure that the children have it available for any impromptu lessons.

Swimming will continue every Wednesday.
