Year 5

Welcome to the Y5 class page


In Year five we have an exciting and challenging year ahead of us with many experiences to look forward to. It will be hard work and expectations in upper KS2 are high but we will work together to make it interesting and lots of fun.


As the year goes by we will continue to fill this page with class news and photographs of us involved in a wealth of activities as we fulfil our mission:


'To have life - and have it to the full'

                                                                                                                              John 10:10


If you have any ideas for our webpage or have any queries please feel free to contact us.

At St Joseph's we realise the importance and value of Homework.

The grids provided each half term have an array of activities linked to different subjects. We expect at least one piece of good quality work to be produced every week.

Homework books will be handed out on Fridays and should be returned to school for marking by Wednesday morning.


Spellings will be sent home every Friday to be written out

and learnt for a test on Monday.

All Children will benefit from reading EVERY evening and their Reading Records will be checked each day.

It is important that the children continue to learn their times tables as they will assist them to achieve success in Maths this year.


PE Lessons


PE lessons for Year 5 take place on Monday afternoon.

The children will need:

a red polo shirt, black shorts (without branding) and black pumps.



Discovering Shakespeare


English lessons during Autumn term are extremely exciting because we are learning about the life and works of William Shakespeare; widely regarded as one of the greatest poets and playwrights of all time. We are focusing on his tragic and intriguing play: Macbeth, which was first performed in 1606 and is one of Shakespeare's most famous plays.


The opportunity to perform at the Z Arts theatre in Manchester allows us to fully engage with the characters and be enveloped in a world of ambition, temptation and murder created by this extraordinary writer.


Year Five  Z Arts Drama Workshop

The children fully engaged with the activities and enjoyed learning techniques to improve their performance skills.
