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!

Staff in Year 5

Our class teacher is Miss Hanna. The class will be taught by Mrs Quilter on Wednesdays.

Our class TA is Mrs Mullins.


We value all of the staff who help us with our learning and progression throughout the school year.

Key Weekly Information

The classroom door will open from 8:45am each morning and children must be in the classroom and ready to learn by 8:55am. The school day will end at 3:20pm.


PE is with Mrs Quilter on a Wednesday afternoon. The other PE session will be led by Premier Sport on a Friday. 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?


Spring 1:


In History this term we will be looking at Vikings. Badgers will be focusing on the Lady of the Mercians. They will explore Viking links to the rest of the world and how Vikings changed as they settled in other parts of the world.

In Geography, Badgers are looking at Migration and its impact on places.


In Science we are learning about living things (including humans, animals) and their habitats.


You can find the curriculum overview for the spring term under the 'useful documents' section below.
