Year 5

We had a fantastic time during our Victorian day in Y5! The children took part in various activities and embraced life in a Victorian classroom, playing their part by imagining what life would have been like. We took part in needlework, woodwork, slate writing, bible studies, copy book writing and drama.



Well done to the netball team who played fantastic games at Sheffield Girls

Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 team includes Mr Holland(Class Teacher on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) Mr French(Class Teacher on Thursday and Friday) Mrs Cave(Teaching Assistant every morning) and Mrs Hill. Madame Cachou-Kirkham will be teaching French for 1 hour on Wednesday afternoon and Mrs Bell will be teaching PSHE (Jigsaw) for one hour on Thursday afternoon.


Throughout Year 5 the children work on cross curricular topics which are changed each half term. The first topic is Spectacular Space. There is a knowledge organiser above to show what we will be learning. 


Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that you arrive in your PE Kit, which can include black shorts, tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt, a zip up hoody or jacket and trainers. Do not wear football shirts as this is not part of our PE kit.



A homework message will be put on the Year 5 class page of Google Classrooms every Friday afternoon. Homework will always be linked to learning which we have been completing in school. A date for completion will be attached to the activity. There will also be a list of spellings. These will be tested every Monday in class.


If you have any questions, concerns or queries please email Mr Holland or Mr French.

Y5/6 Boys and Girls Football


An enormous well done to all the children who have represented Norton Free recently in competitions against other local schools. The children have performed superbly and despite the boys being unfortunately knocked out, we are delighted that our Y5/6 girls team qualified for the next round. We are looking forward to competing in more games in the coming months and participating in the Y5  and Y6 leagues in the spring term.
