Hurst Knoll St James'

CE Primary School

Inspiring Faith and Learning for Life


Year 5

Class Teacher: Miss. J. Hughes (4 days), Mr. C. Houghton (1 day)

Teaching Assistant: Mrs. S. James and Mrs. J. Parker


This half term our PE day is Wednesday (indoors) and we have Dance on Mondays.  Children should leave their PE kit in school and make sure that they bring it in the day after any after school clubs

Healthy Snacks

Please bring a healthy snack for break time (10.15 am).  Our mornings are long (9.00 – 12.15) and so a snack at break-time will help with concentration.

Water Bottle

Please bring a reusable water bottle to school.  Children are able to refill these throughout the day.


Tameside Music Service will be visiting on Tuesdays and children will be learning the cornet this year.  Children will be able to take instruments home to practice.

Key Skills

To help children in key skills, it would be helpful if children could practice their key skills at home. Activities include: reading daily (could be a book, magazine, something on a tablet, ipad or kindle), practicing times tables, practicing spellings.  Each child has a login for Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars.  This means that they can practice key skills on a device at home.  Please speak to one of the adults in class if you need any help with accessing any of these resources at home.


The documents below show the work that will be covered during the Autumn 1 half and outline the expectations that children in Year 5 work towards at the end of the academic year.
