Hi, welcome to Year 5's Class Page, my name is Miss Wall and I have the pleasure of teaching this wonderful class. Take a look below to see what we do in Year 5 and how much they learn. I look forward to sharing the children's brilliant work completed in class.

Online Learning 2021

Good Morning Year 5,

World Book Day 2021 - Thursday 11th March


I cannot believe it has been a whole year already since we all dressed up as Alice in Wonderland characters to celebrate that book! 


As we will all be back in school from Monday 8th March, we thought it would be great if we could celebrate World Book Day togther. Our World Book Day will be celebrated on Thursday 11th March - this is your day to dress up as your favourite book character and share your favourite book with us all. 


I look forward to seeing what characters you come dressed as.


Virtual Book Fair


Throughout this week Moorcroft families are able to access a virtual book fair that is being held to mark World Book Day. Please follow the link below to the Facebook page and take a look round the book fair and see if there's any books that take your fancy. Please let Lucy know through this group if there is anything you would like to order and your books will be delivered to school for you. This virtual book fair is available until Friday 12th March. 


Lucy is also running a competition for the children. If you would like to take part children in Key Stage 2 are asked to draw an image of their favourite book character and write a description of their chosen character and what they like about them, you may win some books.

5th January

Good morning all, we find ourselves on another adventure into online learning and I am confident in saying I know you will all do a fabulous job as you have done in the past.


Today is the day that you will have to set yourself up again at home, please make sure you have somewhere comfortable to sit when you are working, you have all the equipment needed – a pencil or pen, rubber and ruler and your work space is in a quiet but central location in the house where an adult is accessible should you need their help.


Our online learning will start tomorrow (Wednesday 6th). I will be in touch with our schedule and the online platform we will be using – either Zoom or Google Classroom later on today. For those of you that were in school yesterday can you please spend some time today to check your Google login on your own computer/laptop/tablet/phone and let me know through Class Dojo if you are able to access this or if you have any problems with it.


For those of you that are receiving your packs today, once you receive them can you type into your internet search bar – Google Classroom – select the first link that appears and click on the sign in box for Google Classroom on the top right of your screen. Use the login card you have in your pack to login, accept the new user agreement and click on ‘I’m a student’. Once you have done this a grey box will appear named ‘5W’. Click on this link. That is all you need to do for today, I will provide more information on this once a schedule has been arranged for tomorrow’s lessons.


Also spend some time today helping around the house – Have you made your bed this morning? Could you make lunch for your parents/carers who you are going to be spending a lot more time with? Have you put your socks in the laundry basket? Could you hang the washing up or even something as simple as making them a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate? (Please be careful with that last one!)


Please at this point do NOT touch your books as you do NOT need them today. If you choose to do any extra-curricular activities such as some art/craft based activities, sports in the garden, or reading etc please send any photos through to Class Dojo and there will be dojo points awarded.


**For those of you that are interested our book this term is called ‘Skellig’ by David Almond, I am aware that some parents purchased our previous book for the children so they could follow the story as we read together in class and online. If you wish to do the same with this book them please do, however I do encourage the children not to read ahead as this can sometimes spoil it for others.**



Any queries please contact me via Class Dojo, School’s Facebook or the school text messaging service.

Our PE day this year is a Monday, the children will need to come to school wearing their PE kit however if they are swimming they will also need to bring the swimming kit in a bag with them too. 


Homework will be given out every Friday, this will include spellings, English and Maths work. The homework will also be uploaded to this page so everyone can access it at home. This needs to be returned back to school on a Tuesday and spelling tests will take place on the following Friday.

The Boy at the Back of the Class

This is our class text that we are reading this term, we will be completing writing tasks based on the events in the book. The children have already written predictions for the story when they saw just the front and back covers of the book and they are currently working on writing a diary entry based around Ahmet's first day in his new school. 


The book is about a group of 9-year old children and tells the tale of friendship and how being different brings us all together.
