Year 5

Year 5 Staff

Mrs Dourado-Alfonso and Mr Johnson are the class teachers of Year 5. 


At St. Edward's we are committed to the holistic approach of teaching, enabling all pupils to learn develop and progress through the broad, balanced, enjoyable and enriched curriculum that we provide. Pupils reflect on their learning experience at St Edward's and enter the 'What St. Edward's mean s to me'?  This competition is judged by the governors and the winners have the opportunity to experience a pilgrimage to the Eternal City-Rome!

Supporting Learning at Home

In Year 5, the children are encouraged to read a wide variety of genre, to compliment the variety of texts we read in  on a daily basis .Pupils all have a log-in  password to access 'Bug Club' for on-line reading resources. Weekly home includes; spellings, Big Writing, maths and known facts. The children are also encouraged to be creative and independent in their undertaking of 3D projects across the curriculum, such as The Solar System (Science),  Christmas Cribs (RE) and Volcanoes (Geography).

Year 5 Expectations

Pupils are teacher assessed  in all areas of the curriculum, however there are formal test paper tasks or extended writing assessments in English (Reading  Writing and  SPAG- Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) , Mathematics, RE and Science.


Remote Learning

In the unfortunate case of a Covid outbreak in Year 5; the year group will need to be sent home to isolate for two weeks. For the duration of these two weeks home learning will occur using a combination of Office 365 live-teaching, combined with tasks set through the PurpleMash platform. These online sessions will be lead by the class teachers.
