Mrs Ormerod


Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Coulthard, Mrs Ormerod and Mr Whittaker are looking forward to another great year in your journey of learning.

This page will be updated shortly.

Year 5 have been continuing with their weekly ukelele lessons with Mr Haworth on Tuesday afternoons. Please remember to bring in guitars on Tuesdays and practise at home. 



This term in maths we are looking at place value. We are using various resources to teach this to our children in Year 5 such as TimesTables rockstars which is both paper based and on the computer which the children really enjoy and it has proven to be effective in helping the children learn their times tables. Year 5 have also been leaning column addition and subtraction in class and also as homework they have been given different work sheets on timestables to ensure that they are all comfortable and can work out equations up to x12. 


This term in English, all of our children in Year 5 have completed their own theatre review of the play 'The Little Princess' which they watched in school at the beginning of this term. We have been focusing on handwriting in class and as homework to make sure all children can form letters properly and join up their writing. 


This term in Topic we have been learning about the Maya Civilisation.

Within this the children have learnt about the culture of the Mayans and have produced detailed mind maps using Ipads to independently research about the Maya people. They have also been looking at the Mayan number system; creating numbers with shells, stones and sticks as groups. The children enjoyed this hands on approach to learning about the Mayans and their work was recorded from taking pictures on the Ipads of what they had done.


This Term in Science, the children have been learning about Forces. We have performed different experiments using Newton Meters and investigating air resistance using parachutes so that the children could get hands on and involved with this subject, the children really enjoyed doing this and where successful recording their group results.
