Lark Class- Year 5

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.
