Year 5 – Mr. Lopez

Hello and welcome to Year 5. We are hardworking, enthusiastic, honest and respectful group of individuals with a passion for learning new things. In Year 5 we have high standards and expect all children to give 100% at all times.



Ability is what you are capable of doing.

Motivation determines what you do.

Attitude determines how well you do it.



In English we will be reading a variety of books, which link to our Egyptian theme. These include:

  • The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
  • Horrible Histories Ancient Egyptians



In Mathematics we will be focusing on:

  • Number and place value
  • Addition/Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Geometry



Every child will take part in a guided reading session weekly with Mr. Lopez. There will also be opportunities to complete other activities based around reading during this time. Everyone will have the opportunity to choose a book from the library to read during the allocated times.  



This term we will be learning about Forces – moving on to animals and agriculture.


Religious Education 

This year in RE we will be starting our learning journey about Christianity; we are also beginning our studies into Buddhism. 


PE kit 

Every week children take part in one PE lesson. Our PE sessions take place on a Thursday afternoon. We strongly advise that all children bring both their indoor and outdoor PE kit on a Monday morning and take it home on a Friday for washing. 



The children will be given new spellings the week before the spelling test is due. It is important that the children practice their spellings, so they can use them in their writing.


Water bottles 

We recommend that all children have a water bottle in school every day, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day. We have a designated area in the classroom where we keep our water bottles and can fill them up at the water fountain in our shared area, at appropriate times. You can purchase a school water bottle from the office or use an alternative bottle. It would be really useful if you can make sure that your child's full name is on the bottle, in case we have more than one of the same bottle. 


Fruit for break time 

We would also like to remind you that the children are more than welcome to bring their own fruit for break time. However we must stress that they can only bring fruit, as we are a healthy school.


Thank you
