Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 from Mr Ames


Hello and welcome to Year 5! I am super excited to be your teacher this year and I know that we are all going to have such an amazing time together. You are more than ready for the challenges which you will face as you move into Upper Key Stage Two. In Year 5, you will continue to develop your independent skills and learn how to make positive contributions to our class, our school and the world around us.

We have some new and exciting projects and topics planned over the year; our first topic is going to be Passport to the World. Here, we will be going on our very own world trip. We will start in the village of Skellingthorpe, explore our own local area and then jet off to Europe and South America. In South America, we will be learning all about the Amazon Rainforest, its creatures and people who live within. It promises to be an amazing topic - keep an eye out for some pictures of our amazing learning journey.


In our classroom, you will be working with myself mostly but taught by Mrs Fitzgerald on a Tuesday. We are supported by an amazing team who include Mrs Bromhead and Mrs Emmingham.

This year, we are also joined by a student teacher, Mr Kelk, who will be working alongside us for the majority of the year. 


I know that you will do your best and do yourselves proud! 

The Power of Reading


In our class, WE LOVE TO READ. We know how it opens many different doors and can let our imaginations run wild. We are creating our class book of books which shows our reading journey together. Please see the document below if you would like some inspiration for your next book.
