Year 5

Welcome to Year 5



Miss Ysanne Neal

Year 5 Teacher

Can't believe we're over half way through the year!


After Easter, our Cornerstones topic will be "Off with her Head" - an interesting and sometimes gruesome look into the life of the Tudors (one of Miss Neal's favourite topics!).


Along side this topic, we will be reading "Treason" by Berlie Doherty (who also wrote Children of Winter from a previous topic!) as part of our English lessons.

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.


Last week's winners were the red table.


We also have additional weekly prizes up for grabs for our raffle draw, "Good to be Gold", top "shed score" on Spelling Shed and MVP on TT Rockstars.




Year 5 have an exciting year ahead, filled with many topics across the curriculum aimed to stimulate the children’s learning.
