Class 5

Welcome to our Class 5 Page!

I hope that you have all had a lovely summer break and you are all ready to come back to school full of energy and ready to learn. I know that so many of you have worked incredibly hard at home and I can’t wait to see you working hard in the classroom. Year 5 is a very important year in school so I know that you will always try your best and work hard. We have plenty of exciting learning opportunities coming up this year.

Meet your Teachers

Hello! My name is Mrs Scott and I am your Class Teacher.

This year, I have moved out of Year 6 and I am very much looking forward to coming back to Year 5! I am starting my fifth year here at Ashwood and I am very excited to be your new teacher. In school, I lead reading and writing and these are definitely some of my favourite subjects.

When I’m not in school, I love to travel to new places and see my friends, spend time with my family and read lots on my Kindle.

Mrs Scott

Hello! My name is Mrs Baldwin and I am your Teaching Assistant.

You all know me well because I worked in your class when you were in Year 4. My favourite books are the Harry Potter collection – I’m definitely a Hufflepuff.

At the weekends, I love going for long walks with my family. My favourite food is pizza – yummy!

When I’m not in school, I love to travel to new places and see my friends, spend time with my family and read lots on my Kindle.

Our New Learning

When you return to school, our topic for the first term will be space. We will start by learning all about the solar system and the planets, before moving on to the Space Race. we will learn all about the astronauts that have already travelled to space and what the future of space travel could be like. Before we return to school, see if you can learn the names of the planets in our solar system. Which planet is the closest to the sun? Which one is the furthest away?

Class Information

It is absolutely key that you attend school every day if you can. If you do not attend school, you miss out on key learning and time to spend with your friends.

Homework will be set on a Thursday in Y5 and will need to be returned by the following Tuesday.

Our school is proud to call ourselves ‘a reading schoool’ and we want our children to share the same passion about books that we do. For this reason, it is vital that children continue to have the opportunity to share books at home.
