Welcome to Badgers!

Welcome to Year 5! Thank you for visiting our class page. On this page you will find key information about our curriculum and our classroom, as well as information on some of our learning!

Key Weekly Information

The classroom door will open from 8:40am each morning and children must be in the classroom and ready to learn by 8:50am. The school day will end at 3:20pm.


The first PE session is on Tuesday afternoon. The other PE session will be led by Premier Sport on a Wednesday. Please ensure that children are wearing clothes appropriate for all weathers, including multiple layers and waterproof shoes!


Each Friday, Badgers will be given their homework for that week. This work will be practicing spellings from the year 5-6 spelling list. We will also be practicing our spelling rule of the week. Badgers will be given one sheet of homework for mathematics and grammar; these will be stuck into their pink homework books. It is important for Badgers to be reading at least 5 days a week and continuing to fill in their reading leaves.


We will be marking homework on Thursday morning so please remember to return the homework books prior to this.

What are we learning at the moment?




In History this term we will be looking at Baghdad. We will be focusing on the building of the Round City and the impact Islam and Baghdad had on scholars at the time. 

In Geography, Badgers are looking at California and water supply. They will learn about what water is used for and the impact of drought.
