Mrs Gaskell

Welcome to our Year 5 class page. 

Our teachers are Mrs Gaskell and Miss Gabbott.  Our teaching assistant is Mrs Moncrief.

We are a class of 31 amazing children. We are kind, helpful, caring, respectful and work hard to achieve our personal best. We are really looking forward to seeing what this academic year will bring.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to email at



Have a look at the documents available to download at the bottom of this page. You will hopefully find some propmt sheets that you find useful and helpful.


This half term, PE will be on a Monday and so remember to come to school in your kit on this day.



Please try really hard to read at least four times a week. It would be great if you could access Oxford Reading Buddy and complete the quizes as you read through the books. In addition, read the reading book you have brought home from school or another book from home or the library that you really enjoy. Why not ask an adult to read to you too. Now that we have joined the FBA (Fantastic Book Awards), you will hopefully get the chance to read at least one of these six titles too. If you can't wait you could borrow a title from the library or even buy your own copy.


Each Friday you will bring home a list of words to make sure you can spell. Practise these through the week and make sure you know what they mean too. There will be a spelling check each Friday.

Times tables

By the end of Year 4, children should be able to recall all the times tables up to 12x12. Now that you are in Year 5, please keep the practise up. There are lots of good games on line - "Hit the Button" is a good one to develop speed.


This half term our theme is called "Food, Glorious Food". A key focus subject this half term is Geography. Use your login and password for Here you can complete quizes on Food and Farming as well as other areas that interest you to climb the leader board. These are great to develop your knowledge. Don't let me catch you up!
