Welcome to Year 5


Our Year 5 team consists of the classes Maple, Oak and Pine. 


In Maple, the children are taught by Mr Thomas and supported by Mrs Bingley. 


Mr Fox is the class teacher in Oak.



In Pine, the children are taught by Miss Thompson and supported by Mrs Loveday. 


Reading Ideas for Year 5

Reading is an important part of all children's development. Here we are proving a list of books, which have previously been sent out to you. Please see below. 

What are common exception words?

Common exception words are words where the usual spelling rule doesn't apply. Some of these exception words are used frequently, so children are introduced to common exception words in different year groups. You will find below words lists for Year 1and 2; Year 3 and 4 and lastly Year 5 and 6.


We have made these available for you to see, so you can share these with your children but also allow you to see what types of words children are being asked to know at each stage. The children should be able to read and spell them. 

Home Supported Learning


We believe it is important, in order to aid the progress of the children at Telford Junior School, that there is a bridge of support and learning between school and home. This allows the children to extend their learning in different contexts, which will help them become more confident in their learning. 


Each half term, we send out an interesting and varied homework grid. The children are asked to choose which work they would like to do at home with you and the aim is to total 20 points. Some children do choose to do even more! This allows more flexibility for families who may be busy a certain points of the term. But remember it is best to space the activities out so the children aren't left with all the work to do at the end of the half term. 


Please see below for the home supported learning documents. The children will also bring a paper copy home with them. 

                   Year 5 Visit to Selly Manor. 


All of the children in Year 5 went on a very exciting visit to Sell Manor in Birmingham. This was to bring to life their learning and develop their understanding of the Tudor period for their History topic. 


Y5 Visit to Selly Manor

The visit supported Y5 Tudor studies

Design and Technology

Tudor Houses


The Year 5 classes measured and designed their nets, which they cut out to assemble their Tudor houses. This Technology activity, with cross-curricular links to the children's History studies, involved measuring of lines and angles in the construction process.

Tudor houses insipred by the visit to Selly Manor and their History work.

Week 5 of Spring Term saw all the Year 5 classes having an exciting week exploring angles and using their protractor skills to measure and identify a range of angles and patterns!
