Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


The Year 5 teaching team this year are:
5B - Mrs Barlow (Year Group Leader)

5M - Mr Meyer

5R - Mrs Reynolds


Our support staff for the year are:
 Mrs Bloch, Mr Engelbrecht, Mrs Kinasz, Ms Kariolis, Miss Haycock

We hope that you all had an amazing summer break and are ready for the year ahead!


Our topic title this term is "Jet Off Into Year 5"

Within this topic, we will be learning more about the history of Gatwick Airport and we will be carrying out some research to look at the impact this transport hub has on our local area.

Our science work will focus on forces including air and water resistance and we will be linking our English writing with non-chronological reports on types of aeroplanes/drones and presenting balanced arguments through topical debates on a second Gatwick runway.



Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays


Please make sure that your Home Reading Record Book is in school every day. Class teachers will collect books in every Monday but children may need to write in their books on other days.  They are also useful in class as they have times tables grids, handwriting, grammar information and much more.


Please feel free to come and speak to any of the Year 5 team or put a note in the Home Reading Record Book.
