Year 5

Werrington Primary School

Year 5


Welcome to our Year 5 team!  Let us introduce ourselves:  There is Miss Chase and Mrs Walsham (5C and 5W) then we have our awesome teaching assistants: Mrs Anton, Mrs Knox, Mrs Moore, Mrs Forrest and Mrs Underwood. We also have the lovely Mrs Threadgill during the week to help us with our work!

Year 5 is made up of an enthusiastic and keen group of children ready and willing to learn.

With a busy and exciting year ahead, we look forward to a range of thrilling topics and trips (including a residential to Ferry Meadows (let's hope we have some warm weather!).  Throughout our topics, please look out for any ways you can support your child with their learning.  This could include trips to the library, souvenirs and photos from around the world, family links and experiences and of course supporting your child with their homework.

In Year 5 we all have a love of reading.  Some of our favourite authors include Michael Morpurgo, David Walliams, Anthony Horrowitz, Roald Dahl, Anne Fine and Jacqueline Wilson.  If you haven't experienced any of these authors now is the time to try!

This Week's News


What a wonderful International week we have had so far! We have been looking at maps, our local area and Spain. Our walks around the village this morning were fantastic and we have all successfully used a compass.

We are looking forward to our play tomorrow morning and hope you all are too.

Over half term, don't forget to continue reading, keep up TT (there will be a Battle of the Bands running!) and don't forget to get on spelling shed to boost our scores, it would be great for us to move up the global leaderboard! 

Have a lovely half term, enjoy the (hopefully!) warm weather, get some rest and stay safe! We have an EXTREMELY busy half term ahead!



Well, the past 2 weeks have flown by! We hope you all enjoyed a nice break over the May Bank Holiday weekend! Year 5 have been busy practising for our assembly next Friday (25th May) and we hope lots of our parents, carers, grandparents, aunties and uncles can make it to come and see what we have been learning this year! 

Thank you to everyone who came to the residential meeting for Ferry Meadows on Wednesday 16th May - we hope you found it useful and that you have now all received your packs to be filled out by the 18th of June. We can't wait to get going now! 

Next week we are looking forward to 'International Week' where we will be doing lots of Geography and Spanish! Don't forget to bring hats and water bottles and to wear sun-cream during this lovely weather we are expecting!



Another busy week this week! Lots of rivers work going on, using those kung-fu moves from last week, we got to make our own mock youtube videos explaining the course of a river. There has been some amazing writing happening this week as our autobiographies for imaginary characters have been completed. 

Don't forget homework is due tomorrow and everyone should be reading as much as possible! We have our fingers crossed that we get some sunshine towards the end of this week so sun cream might be a good idea for those lovely playtimes on the field. 



We've had another lovely week, especially with our rivers trip yesterday (shame about the heavy rain we had right at the end of the day, which just caught 5W on the way back to the coach!). We learned lots about the water cycle, reasons rivers are important and the journey of a river. Ask your child about their awesome kung-fu moves to explain this! We even got a chance to get some waders on and get into the stream to do some experiments - we all loved it!

We're looking forward to May Day tomorrow as we have some very talented Y5 girls and boys taking part in country dancing and sword dancing! We hope we get to watch them in action, if only the rain stays away for the afternoon!



A very exciting first week back with some lovely warm weather - don't forget water bottles when the sun is shining this bright! 

Next week we are on our trip on Wednesday. Please ensure you are in school in time as we are leaving promptly at 9am to make the most of our day! You will need a packed lunch! Looking forward to learning more about rivers and the water cycle!
