Miss Ratcliffe

Welcome to Year 5R!

Miss Ratcliffe, Mrs Taggart and Mrs Campbell are looking forward to a fantastic year together with our class. We can’t wait to see our children grow and develop academically into aspiring young people. 

Please keep up to date with our page to see what your children are learning about throughout the year. 



Reading - This is done every day and the reading card should be signed once read. Your child is assigned a day when they will be listen to read. Their reading card will be checked to ensure they are reading. Books will be assigned on a Monday and they will be need to be returned on Friday. 

Spellings - These are given out on a Monday and should be practiced nightly. This homework should be done for Friday when they have their spelling test. 

Maths - This is to be given out on Friday, to be done over the weekend. This can be put on Seesaw 


Autumn 2

In our English lessons this half term, we will be looking at a range of books. The main books that we will be doing work on are 'The War of the Worlds' by H. G. Wells (which links cross curricularly with our topic). This text will provide us with many writing opportunities including: a detailed description predicting what we think is going to emerge from the spacecraft; a newspaper report based on the Martian attack; and a retrospective account of the invasion from the perspective of one of the aliens.

In Maths we will be learning about Statistics, Multiplication and Division, and Measurement (Perimeter and Area).

Our new Topic will be Space Scientists. We will be exploring all things space - why do we need the sun? Is the Earth a magnet? Why does the Earth rotate and how does this link to day and night? Please see objective sheet to see what your children will be learning.  

In RE we will be looking at Baptism & Confirmation - Belonging - Life Choices and Advent & Christmas - Loving - Hope. 

Please keep visiting our page to see the wonderful work that our children produce.
