Rossington St Michael’s C of E Primary School

Learning to be the best that we can be with the love of God

Welcome to Year 5


My name is Mrs Stanfield and I have worked at Rossington St Michael’s for 5 years now.

I really enjoy working here with incredible children and staff amazing.

I really enjoy working in Year 5 and am excited to carry on with the exciting work we are doing.

Half Term News- to find out information about your caterpillars then check out our twitter page.

This term Year 5 are studying many aspects of SPACE.

We have already found out how a rocket works. We have made our own rockets and sent them flying into the sky! We really enjoyed the planetarium and found out many amazing facts which we have included in our topic learning

In literacy we have written a newspaper article recounting the events of the moon landing.

As part of our learning children have researched the different temperatures of the planets and have created a graph to show our findings.


During our literacy lessons we have read many stories from other cultures, including Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters by John Steptoe.

Together, we have retold this story and discussed the morals behind it.

We will be creating our own stories based on other stories we will read from around the world that contain a moral and lesson to be learnt.





Our timetable is jam packed and very busy.

Homework is to be handed in every Monday and a new piece will be handed out also on a Monday.

Children will receive a piece of numeracy and literacy homework.

P.E. is taught every Friday afternoon with Miss Walker.

Reading - Children will be read to at least once every week and we complete a reading lesson every day. Children need to be reading at least three times per week at home.

Spelling - We have started a new scheme in school called Read Write Inc.

Children log the spellings they are learning during the week. These log books are to be taken home and brought back every day.
