Year 5 Spring 1

Year 5 Spring 2

The year 5 teachers are Mr Czartowski (5 Chipmunks) and Mr Miller (5 Macaws), they will be supported in class by Mrs Czartowski and Mrs Macdonald. Mrs Crook and Mrs Norfolk will be working with the children during PPA sessions (Monday afternoons)

Year 5 is an important year and sees the children make the transition to upper key stage two. In year 5 we look to place more responsibility on the children by encouraging them to be more mature in their approach to their learning. It is important to see the children taking greater ownership of their learning becoming more independent and reflective.

In year 5 we encourage the children to continue their learning at home. Each child has their own login details for,

The children will be expected to read regularly at home and have a reading record to record this in.  Although we encourage the children to read regularly, this may only be a couple of pages or 5 to 10 minutes. They should also make sure they regularly (at least once a week) bring in their home reading record.

Games and PE 

Can we ask that the children bring a full indoor and outdoor kit with them at the start of the week. Normally, indoor PE will be on a Friday and outdoor games will be on a Wednesday afternoon.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
