Year 5 Panthers

Home Learning 


Good morning Panthers there will be a live meet today at 9:00am. I really really hope all of you try your hardest to log into this. 


Work from today will be posted on Google Classrooms here:

Instructions for how to use Google Classrooms will be given during our live meet this morning so do not worry. 


Once again everyone is not completing reading plus and this is very disappointing as it is a task I know you all enjoy. Phone calls home will be made today for those who do not do this task. 




Google Meet Instructions

Welcome to the Year 5 Panthers!


My name is Miss Priestley and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 5 Panthers this year.  Mrs Amir and Mrs Patel will also be helping us in Year 5.  At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid and lots of useful websites to support learning.


Important Reminders

* PE - Our PE day is Friday. Please ensure that your children arrive in school in their P.E on this day. This is as well as making sure they have removed their jewellery.

* Homework is given out every Wednesday and should be returned on Monday.  All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term.  Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars, Reading Plus and one other piece to be completed.


Spring 2

At the moment we are still learning from home through Google Classrooms. However we will still be learning just as we would in school. Our value this half term is Truthfulness. Don't forget to complete your values task at home - it could be included on our next newsletter!


This half term, we will be learning...


This half term we will be studying the text ‘The inventions of Hugo Carbet’ using active reading strategies to refine thinking and create notes along the way. We will also be learning to summarise the main ideas that we draw from more than one paragraph to identify the key details. Our writing outcome will be to write a short story about an invention, which includes blend of action and description.



This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons:

  • Decimals to 3 d.p. 
  • Ordering and comparing decimals 
  • Rounding decimals
  • Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals
  • Percentages


We will be learning all about forces. We will be exploring and investigating the different effects of gravity. We will also be looking at types of resistance such as water and air resistance. We will be learning how gears, pulleys and levers also create a force.



We will be finding out about the Early Islamic Civilisation, commonly known as the Islamic Golden Age. Within this topic we will be looking at where Baghdad is and how it has changed in recent times. We will be looking back to what life was like in Baghdad in AD900.
