5C-The Borrowers

Welcome to 5C! 

Miss Parker and Mrs Armitage

In 5C we endeavour to engage with the Year 5 curriculum whilst encouraging resilience, self-management, reflection, resourcefulness and independence to allow us to underpin the school values;



Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities    throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.

PPA Time

Miss Parker is out of class on a Wednesday afternoon. For this session, Mrs Koalitis will be in class to continue their learning in R.E. and Music


In Year 5, children are expected to complete one to two pieces of homework a week.
Your child has been provided with CGP English and maths books to complete their homework. Each week, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks from each book! Check Dojo for this week’s pages.

It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit, or vegetables and milk.  We also encourage your child to bring a bottle of water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch.

Spring 1 Learning in 5C

Ancient Greece

Our theme work for this half term will be all about life in Ancient Greece! We will explore this through a range of exciting activities throughout the science, history, geography, and DT.
Design and Technology – We will be carrying out market research on existing products in order to develop and evaluate a new product of our own.

 History--We will be studying artefacts and archeological sites to discover what life was like in the time of the Ancient Greek civilization.

Geography- We will be naming and locating UK towns and cities as well as focusing on human and physical features in these areas as well as modern day and ancient Greece.

Science - We will be exploring Forces including gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction and recognising that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

PSHE- Media Literacy and Digital Resilience – Here we will learn about online content, gauging its reliability, recognising suspicious content and strategies to remain safe online. Money and Work – Here children will be learning about gaining financial literacy and spending and saving wisely.

RE – The children will be learning about Jesus and Christianity through the key question “What do we mean by a miracle?”

Music – In music the children will be using the Charanga scheme of learning to begin playing glockenspiels!
