GREET THE TEACHER (please click this link to view year 5’s greet the teacher)

I am Mrs Whalley and I teach Year 5 for four days of the week.  I am also Deputy Head, Key Stage 2 Lead, Maths Lead and share the RE lead.  

On Tuesdays, Mrs Barker will be teaching in Year 5.  She also teaches French and German to Years 1 to 6 on Thursdays. 

Our Geography for the SPRING term is North America (What makes this continent special?) and our SCIENCE (Chemistry) is Properties of Materials’. 

We are very glad to be back together and look forward to the term ahead.  Please see the Year 5 Yearly Overview below.

Maths Homework will be set using MyMaths


The school has subscribed to MyMaths, an interactive Maths website for teaching, learning, revising and enjoying mathematics. Usernames and passwords have been given to pupils in years 1 – 6 and sent home to parents in a letter.

  • How do I find the homework my child has been set? When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s new school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.
