Mr Bentley and Mrs Rees

We are a hard working class of 24 children who use our learning powers on a daily basis to make as much progress as possible.  Our class teacher is Mr Bentley and we are also supported by Mrs Rees who works with us on a Monday afternoon and all day on a Tuesday. We are ready for the challenges of the year ahead and embrace it with a keen willingness to learn as much as we can! #stickatitivity

Year 5 LTP outlines what we will cover this year in each subject

  • What homework do Y5 complete?

    Homework will test the key skills of reading, SPaG and maths fluency.  The children will be given homework every Friday and it is to be returned by the following Friday. Each week the children will be expected to complete:

    • a spelling task
    • home reading book (x3 by an adult)
    • a maths fluency activity
    • SPaG sheet
  • What days are PE in Y5?

    PE takes place on a Monday and a Wednesday.  It is best if the children bring in their PE kit and leave it in school.  They can take it home periodically for a clean - once a half term is sufficient (or more often if you wish).

  • What can I do to help?

    Support you children with their homework and listen to them read as often as possible.  FYI all children have access to the school website, which is free for them to use and is packed full of games and activities for them to work through (alll educational!).  It is only accessed via an individual login so is secure.  They also have access to the school Bug Club (via the website ActiveLearn) which is a library of ebooks for them to read and complete related questions.  This will supplement everything they learn in school and can be accessed on any platform (smartphone, tablet and PC).

Cher Zoo


For European Languages Day this year, Year 5 translated the classic picture boook by Rod Campbell 'Dear Zoo' into French, 'Cher Zoo'.  The children used Google translate, along with their own knowledge, to translate a page with their partner.  They then used an app called Book Creator to turn each page into an eBook using iPads.  The resulting videos showcase their finished products.  Ask them what they were also able to do to when the book was 'read' back to them?!
