Lark Class- Year 5



It was lovely to welcome all the children back after the festive break. The first day back was a Discovery Day and we spent the day exploring maps and map symbols. This was a great way to introduce our main topic for this half term which is The United Kingdom - a Geography based topic. More details of our curriculum coverage this term can be found in the Planning folder below.

Lark Class have PE on Tuesday afternoons, so please make sure PE kits are in school.

 Homework is given out on Thursdays and should be handed in by the following Wednesday at the latest.

We continue to hold our weekly Reading Challenge. Please make sure your child reads at least 4 times each week and has their reading record signed by an adult.

The January newsletter can be found in the Newsletter folder below.

WW2 Evacuation Day

WW2 Evacuation Day 1

Welcome to our class page. We have changed the class names and Year 5 are now called Lark Class.


The children have made a good start to the autumn term. We have researched facts about skylarks, written poetry and sketched pictures of birds. Our work will soon be on display outside the hall.


This term our main topic will be World War 2. We will explore this period of history through the eyes of children and learn about events such as evacuation and rationing.


Our long term and medium term plans can be found in the class planning folder.



Homework for Lark Class is given out on a Thursday and due in by the following Wednesday. This will be spelling list, a maths sheet and a literacy sheet.

Reading - children should read at least 4 times a week at home and have their Reading Records signed at home by an adult.

Spellings - the children will have a weekly spelling list to practise. This is in their red spelling books. These books need to be in school every Thursday, so we can give out the new list.

Times tables - these need to be practised at home. Children are expected to know all the tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.
