Year 5 A - Miss Fitzhugh 2019 - 2020

Mrs Adamczyk

Our names are Miss Blakeman and Miss Fitzhugh. Learning in Year 5 is supported by Mrs Oldham.  

During the Autumn term, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class.

In Maths, we are looking at place value and addition and subtraction.

During Literacy, we are basing our writing on our class book ‘The Eleventh Hour’. We will use this to spark our imagination to write a narrative. In our Guided Reading sessions, we are reading ‘The Edge Chronicles: Beyond the Deepwoods’.

In the afternoons, we will look at a wide variety of topics, such as Space in Science, ‘How is our country changing?’ In Geography and the Anglo Saxons in History.


Children receive weekly Art sessions led by Mrs Walsh in the dedicated art room.



Our PE days are Wednesdays (with Mrs Adamczyk) and Thursday (with Miss Fitzhugh and Miss Blakeman).  Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back.

All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy.



Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.40.

School finishes at 3.15 and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time.

Home Learning

Spellings will be given out every Monday to be practiced at home for a spelling test on Thursday.  Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress and to help nurture a love for reading. Children will be given a reading planner which should be signed every night and sent to school with them and their reading book every day.
