Spring Term 2023

Lessons begin at 8:50am every day - please try to be on time. 

The gates will open at 8:40am so you can all be in class and ready to learn when lessons begin.

Please line up sensibly along the fence at the Stockport Road entrance gate and wait for a teacher to open the gate. Do not block the pavement or go near the road please. 





 Our Curriculum

In Year 5, we love to learn and our curiosity is fostered through our enquiry-based curriculum!

Please view the topics and key questions below to find out more about our learning:

Distance Learning

We are using Class Dojo as our learning platform and every child and parent has their own log in.  If you change device or lose your password, then please contact school as soon as possible. 


In the event of unforeseen school closures, e.g. lockdowns, we aim to stick to our usual curriculum as far as is possible, but some elements, topics and objectives may have to change due to circumstances.

We will always do our best to provide all pupils with a full, rich and enjoyable curriculum to ensure that children do not fall too far behind during this difficult time of lockdown.


When we are in school, homework, messages to parents and reminders will be sent via Class Dojo, as will work set for any children who are self-isolating at home.

 Here are some wellbeing tasks you might like to try:



Children have their own reading books which should be brought into school every day and they are expected to read every night for 10-20 minutes.  This will help them to develop their fluency, expression, accuracy and comprehension skills. Parents are kindly asked to write a comment in their child's reading record after listening to them read. Your child will receive a new reading book by the end of each week if they have shown that they have read and understood it.
