Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Hello and welcome to Year 5 at Parkfield Community School. Our dedicated teaching team consists of Miss O'Neill, Mr Lewis, Miss Walsh and Mrs Harris.

In Year 5 this year, we have some outstanding topics of study: from learning about The Industrial Revolution to learning about the Medieval Monarchs as well as learning about the Mediterranean. We have so much to look forward to this year!

In maths, we will be learning through the use of images and models to help understand complex numerical relationships. We aim to provide children with enrichment experiences and activities and prepare them for life outside of Parkfield, as they continue their academic progress. 

In English, we will aim to enhance the children’s writing and reading through the use of high-quality texts. Through a process of speaking and listening, your child will develop key skills which will enable them to write and read in more depth. You can help at home by helping your child practise their weekly spellings, reading their home readers with them and letting them go onto MyOn. 

We will have P.E. every Tuesday. Please ensure your child wears their P.E. kit to school.

We are really looking forward to this year. Please check the website for regular updates.
