Lime Class

Lime Class: Year 5
Here you will be able to find our Year 5 curriculum overview and our termly newsletters.
I have also included the 50 books to read in Year 5 list and I strongly recommend that the children have a go at trying some of these titles.

Lime Class - Year Key information


Our PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays (Friday will be swimming this term) and children are expected to take part in all PE lessons. They should come to school in the correct PE kit on these days.  

Water Bottles

Please make sure your child comes to school with a named water bottle.


Homework will be set via Seesaw on a Thursday and unless specified, will be due in the following Wednesday. Your child should upload their homework to Seesaw by this day.

Additionally, Children are expected to read either to an adult at home or to themselves for at least 15 minutes a day. Their reading record should be signed every time they read so that we can keep track at school. If your child reads competently to themselves, ask them some questions about the book so that you can see if they have understood what they have read. Discussing different texts with your children will help them to develop their own love of reading.

Welcome to Year 5!
It has been brilliant welcoming the lovely Year 5 class back after the summer holidays. The children are full of enthusiasm for the year ahead and are very keen to get started with some of our fantastic topics (particularly Ancient Egypt). We have got lots to look forward to across an exciting and challenging year!
Maths Investigation Day - September 2022

For Maths Investigation Day this year, Lime Class took part in a variety of different investigations. We focused on developing our problem solving skills both independently and working as part of a team.

As well as the different investigations that the children participated in, we also had lots of fun as a class when we learned how to play a Maths-based strategy game that originated in Ancient Egypt (which links to our current class topic). 

Below you can find some pictures of our class carrying out their activities from throughout the day.
Maths Week (31st October - 4th November 22)
We had lots of fun in Lime Class across Maths Week. Our class theme was time and we became experts in telling the time on both digital and analogue clocks. We even made our own analogue clocks to help us!
We really focused on solving worded problems to better develop our understanding of time as a concept. We also played some challenging games, including a successful round of loop cards.
It was great to see every member of Lime Class working hard and challenging themselves!
Science Day - November 2022
What a fantastic day! Lime Class were extremely excited to find out that we were having a day dedicated to Science. Everybody is really enjoying our new space topic and the class could not wait to get started with some more interesting and exciting learning. 
Before we explored the Solar System a little further, we took the opportunity to discuss the importance of Science and its impact across the world. We had some fantastic conversations about the range of scientific jobs that exist and the diverse range of people that carry them out. Lime Class were then tasked with researching a scientist involved in the field of Science that most interests them. From Mae Jemison (the first black female to travel into space) to Isaac Newton, we listened to some fantastic and insightful presentations. 
We then discussed the different phases of the Moon and the forces involved in space travel. We had some fun creating our own straw rockets, replacing the thrust from an engine with our own breath. The results were fantastic!
