Welcome to Year 5
Hello from Mrs Bennett 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 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 Tuesday. We will be swimming in the Autumn term on Tuesday afternoons. Please wear full P.E kit for before we get changed for swimming.
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 Autumn term, we have lots of interesting topics to study. In History, we will become experts on the Anglo Saxons. If you prefer Science, we will be finding out about properties of materials and the Earth and Space. In English, we will start with a Greek Myth and move on to Narrative stories. In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and addition and subtraction.
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 email@example.com 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!

If you would like to complete some extra activities when you;re not at school, the DfE has also created a list of useful websites which can be found at:
Also, please continue to make use of websites which your child has a personalised login for, such as Numbots and TT Rockstars.
