Year 5

Children campaigning for votes to become a house captain.

Welcome to Year 5!

Our class moto is ‘Always aim high!’ and ‘Give 100%, 100% of the time!’

It is my aim to give every child during their time in Year 5 a solid foundation to build on in Year 6 and to prepare them for the busy year ahead.

Tips to improve your writing


Include a wide variety of vocabulary in your writing. Give your writing solid foundations.



Our Spring Term Topic

During this term we will be learning all about our local area. We will be studying the Universe and where Darwen is in the bigger picture. 


Homework will be issued on Fridays and is to be returned by Wednesday of the following week. It generally consists of Mathematics and English which may be linked to topics being covered.

In addition to homework it is important that children try to read as often as they can and learn their weekly spellings.



PE is on Mondays and on Wednesdays we go swimming. Please ensure that each child has their full PE kit in school.


In Spanish we have been changing singular sentences into plural, remembering also to change the colour to plural too.


Also in Spanish we have been translating paragraphs and changing key words using "I want" and "I don't want"



Year 5 have loved finding Spanish cities on a map of Spain then transferring them to a blank map.
