Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Hello from Mrs Bennett and Mrs Morris,


Welcome to 2024 from the team at year 5!  As you will already know, we are the Year 5 teachers and will be supported by Miss Baines and Miss Goddard. Mrs Hartley teaches in Mrs Bennett's class on a Wednesday and a Thursday afternoon. Mr Price teaches French and Music in both classes one afternoon a week.







Full P.E kit will now be worn to school on your new designated P.E day which is Wednesday. We will be learning basketball and rounders skills this half term followed by athletics in Summer 2.


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 summer term, we have lots of interesting topics to study. In History, we will become experts on the Egyptians and the Mayans. If you prefer Science, we will be finding out about properties of materials and living things and their habitats. In English, we will start with an explanation text following our trip to Envirosort, then move on to the ancient myth of Beowulf  and then to Shakespeare. In Maths, we will be focusing on decimals.



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.

    We loved our trip to Bishops Wood on Wednesday 5th October for our Anglo-Saxon day. Check out our photos of sailing on a long boat, jewellery making, den building, wool spinning and much, much more!
