Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Hello from Mrs Hartley and Mrs Morris,


Hello and welcome from us all to Year 5.  As you will already know, we are the Year 5 teachers and will be supported by Mrs Whyley and Miss Goddard. Mrs Astill  will also be working with us in Year 5, and will help support different groups of children across the year group. Mrs Bowen teaches in Mrs Hartley's class on a Tuesday and Mrs Morris' class on a Wednesday morning.




Full P.E kit will now be worn to school on your new designated P.E day which is Tuesday. 


As we are limited with space in the mobiles, we ask that you support us by ensuring we maximise the space, as much as possible. Therefore, we are asking that you only bring with you a coat, and that anything else is brought in a drawstring bag (lunch box and reading book and reading journal). 



In the spring term, we have lots of interesting topics to study. In Geography, you will be learning all about Brazil and in History, we will become experts on Ancient Egypt. If you prefer Science, we will be finding out about Earth and Space and changing materials.  In English, we will start with a non-chronological report about animals from the Amazon Rainforest and in Maths, we will be focusing again on multiplication and division. 



At Comberton, we really value the power of reading and how reading will help you to ‘magpie’ new vocabulary, figurative language and story ideas, to become a confident and skilled writer. We would like to see you continuing to read at least three times a week and ask that an adult signs the record to confirm this has been completed. This forms the Year 5 homework alongside TT Rocks.  



We hope this helps to answer any questions you may have, but if you do have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at and we'll try our best to answer them.
