Year 5 2020 -2021

Miss Gibbons

Ms Hanna

We welcome all parents and children to Year 5's webpage. Year 5 is an important year in which we hope to see the pupils grow to be much more independent, have more confidence and begin to express their own opinions in a mature manner.

Daily Prayers:  Year 5 why not lead the prayer session if you have younger siblings    Week commencing 22nd Feb

Please take a look at this week's Wednesday Word and follow the activities to do with Sunday's Gospel      Wednesday Word Booklet


Please send learning each day via Google Classroom or via email

Some learning can be done straight on to Google Classroom rather than in a book or on paper so it is important your child logs on each day to see what work can be done directly on the device they are using. It would be great to see all the learning your child is doing not just maths and English. Google Classroom gives your child the opportunity to send their learning directly to the teacher and for the teacher to give feedback through a comment box. 

Google Classroom: Video links to show you how to log on and how to submit your learning: 

Logging on:               Submit your learning:

Please download the links in the Files to Download section at the bottom of this page for more information on how to set up and use Google Classroom ( pupil and parent guides).

If there is anything else you need please send an email. You can also keep in touch with all the school information through the website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

To ensure learning continues after half term, there are timetables for the children to follow (see link below and on Google Classroom). These give instructions on what pages the children should complete in the workbooks and information about the other subjects. To support this, there are daily videos uploaded to the class web page and on Google Classroom that provides further instructions and support.
