Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!



Miss Ysanne Neal

Year 5 Teacher

Welcome back! I hope you all had a fantastic summer and are ready to start a busy and exciting year in Year 5.


We started the year with a lesson about "Growth Mindset", something which I am really keen to embrace within our classroom this year. The children have made a really great start already so continuing this along with developing their growth mindset should set us up for a positive and successful year


You can check out the Dojo "Growth Mindset for children" series on YouTube to find out more:


We have kicked off our English / Cornerstones Topic : Pharaohs. This is all about the Ancient Egyptians. We are studying the story ‘The Phoenix Code’ by Helen Moss.


In science we will begin with "Feel the Force", a practical look at how forces work and can be affected by a range of different things.

Rewards and Sanctions in Year 5


This year we will be continuing the whole school “Good to be Green” behaviour scheme which the children are now very familiar with. Raffle tickets will be issued for ‘green behaviours’ such as showing good manners and being ready to learn. Yellow cards act as warning cards for poor behaviour and subsequently red cards if this is persistent.


As part of our class reward scheme, we have a table points system which encourages children to work together to earn rewards. Winning tables will receive weekly and termly prizes for their efforts.
