Year 5 - Mr Jones         

Welcome to Year 5's class page! We have had such an exciting year, filled with many different events. This half term, our topic is all around the Great Plague of 1665-6, specifically looking at the village of Eyam.

Over the course of the half-term, we will look at the village of Eyam, and the important role it played in the trying times of the Great Plague. We will look at William Mompesson, and how he became the hero of Eyam. 

Park Bridge Trip
In the last week of Summer 1, we went to Park Bridge to investigate a local river. Needless to say, we got wet and had lots of fun too! We examined rocks, erosion and spotted creatures in the river, and investigated the cleanliness of our river too...


Watch out Stalybridge! Year 5 are taking to the road. Safely though, thanks to our Bikeability course, where we learned how to be road safe, responsible and respectful cyclists. Cycling in the sun (and rain), What could be better? 

The Battle of Bosworth

 It's hard to believe the year is nearly over, but here is a snapshot of some our learning: a run around the playground; visiting the church for an Easter service; representing phases of the moon with Oreos (yum) and examining historical sources and analysing them!


Homework will be given out every Friday. There will be two pieces (Maths and English), as well as spellings from the Year 5/6 spelling list.

Reading - It is vital that we are reading at home, and getting our reading records signed! Even 5/10 minutes a day can help children progress. We ask for children to read 3 times a week, minimum.

In Year 5 we have a box full of free books to be given away as prizes for those that read at home.  Every time reading is done at home, a raffle ticket is earned to help you win a brand new, exciting book.
