Class 5H

Welcome to Year 5!


We have two Year 5 classes, taught by Miss McClelland and Miss Hennessy, supported by Miss Sharpe and Mrs Robey.

Year 5 is a creative learning year, where we aim to have lots of fun whilst developing independence and a desire to challenge ourselves. 

Please have a look at what we will be learning about this term:



We will be reading a range of Greek myths, and having a go at writing some of our own.

We will also be researching famous astronauts, and writing biographies about them.

After this, our focus for learning will be based upon the novel 'Storm Breaker' by Anthony Horowitz. 


This term we will be revisiting place value. We will be ordering, comparing, reading and writing numbers up to 1 million.  Following this, we shall be learning how to read, order and interpret negative numbers. We will also be recapping column subtraction and addition, followed by multiplication and division. To help your child, it would be greatly appreciated if you would help them learn their times tables. 


Please follow our Twitter page, where we will post updates on our learning: @Y5StAndrew's


Don't hesitate to speak to us if you have any concerns or worries.

Kind regards,

Miss McClelland and Miss Hennessy
