Year 5 - Aldenham

Welcome to Year 5


Our Teacher is Miss Fitzgerald

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hilton


The children have settled into year 5 well made a brilliant start to the year. We have started our English work by looking at expanded noun phrases to describe different locations. In reading, we have started reading Holes by Louis Sachar. The children are really interested in the storylines, especially Igor the pig farmer!


In maths, we are exploring larger numbers, including millions. Children have completed their first 380 test of the year. Results will be sent once marked and collated.

We have started learning about Ancient Egypt in history, which the children already seem so knowledgeable in!


Swimming has begun on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure children come prepared every week. PE kits should remain at school and don’t forget socks for girls who will be wearing tights as the weather cools. Those with pierced ears also need to remember to bring tape for their ears during PE lessons.


Curriulum meetings are scheduled for Tuesday 18th September. UKS2 will be 6:30pm. We will give further details about the year to come and expectations.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries. See you all at the curriculum meeting.
