Mrs Thomas

Welcome to Year Five

Year 5 is taught by Mrs Lynda Thomas and is supported by Miss L Hughes 


Weekly Round-up


Well done everyone, we have made it through to the end of term and a well-earned rest and break from routine!

This week, the class finished their end of unit extended write and also their work on fractions.

Year 5 have worked so hard this term and I am proud of all their efforts. When I look at their faces I see that they are tired and really ready for the Easter holidays. I know they will return a little taller, recharged, refreshed and ready for their last term in Year 5.

I will not be setting any homework for over the holidays but just ask that you support the children with continuing their reading and refining/brushing up on their ‘worst’ times tables. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support.


Lynda T

Spelling and Punctuation

BBC Bitesize contains lots of valuable learning material linked to a wide range of topics.. For spelling rules click on the link here and for punctuation click here (note semi-colons and colons are in the Y6 English curriculum, however Y5 need to understand the names and how to use all other punctuation forms).

Times Tables

There are some times tables booklets for you to download on this page if needed, however the children are doing amazingly well in their weekly times tables tests and we are compiling our 'Premier League' table of pupils who are brave enough to take on the challenge of being timed to recall their tables in the shortest possible time! 


Our Hillside Website has a Wellbeing Page that is being regularly updated and managed by Miss Leisa Hughes. You can find links to My Happy Mind, a range of activities and useful links to help support well-being and a positive mental health. Please do look at this page (situated below the Y6 class page on our website).
