Year 5 Parent Letters

Welcome to Year 5



Teacher – Mr Ryan

Teaching Assistant – Mrs Bulley, Mrs Flude and Mrs Wells

On Thursday mornings we are taught by Mrs Farrelly

Year 5 is an exciting but also very busy year, as we work very hard to ensure we have the skills we need to prepare us for our final year at Chorleywood Primary.  In Year 5 we focus on Reading, Writing and Numeracy, which we try to make as interactive and exciting as possible.

In Year 5 we look at a variety of topics including Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Vikings and learning how to play the ukulele.

Typical Day


We begin the day with an open-ended Literacy activity, which is related to our Grammar focus that week.  This then leads into Literacy where we look at a selection of texts and follow the "Talk for Writing" approach.  Before break we spend time inferring and deducing a text in two separate reading groups.  

After break we have a Numeracy lesson until lunch.

In the afternoon we take part in PE, Music, Geography, RE, ICT, PSHE and History.
