Year 5 2020 - 2021

Mrs Gaskell

Welcome to our Year 5 class page. 

Our teachers are Mrs Gaskell and Miss Gabbott.  

We are a class of 31 amazing children. We are kind, helpful, caring, respectful and work hard to achieve our personal best. We are learning at home at the moment and although it has its challenges, we will rise to them.

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. There are  prompt sheets in your home learning packs which will support you in your lessons and each day when lessons are uploaded you will also be able to access many other support documents.


If you come into school this half term, please wear your kit on a Friday.


As we are learning from home, sending additional for evenings and weekends just feels like too much. However, do please continue to do plenty of reading.


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 have 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 "Inventors and Inventions". There will be lots of Science, Design Technology and History to really get stuck into. Just think about all the inventions that have taken place! There are many things still to be invented that don't even exist yet!
