Year 5

Class Teacher: Mr Wallace

Welcome to Squirrel Class!


I am really looking forward to seeing you all back in class for Summer Term 2. I am hopeful that we will have another term where there are no bubble closures, but we will continue with our procedures that were in place last term.


As always, where possible, the most important thing your child can continue to do whilst at home is read, practise times tables ( and learn any spellings given.


We will be continuing to set homework using the following websites:


Maths -


SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) -


As a school we are here to support you and the children and their continued learning at home, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Please contact myself directly via Class Dojo to ask any questions you may have and stay in touch.


Kind Regards,


Mr Wallace

Welcome back Year 5! We hope you've had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are looking forward to another year at Stilton. This term our topic will be about Allotments. 


As part of this topic we will be learning about lots of exciting things:

- about trade around the world

- how plants reproduce

- we'll grow our own vegetables and maybe use them to cook something if we are successful!

- we'll explore wonderful artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe

and so much more!


We can't wait to get started!

Autumn Term 2: Firedamp and Davy Lamps

This term we will be descending in to the depths of Britain's coal mines and discovering how coal miners brought the precious coal up to the surface. We will learn about how coal mining changed industry throughout time and we will even get to interview our very own coal miner, Mr Adcock who really did work as a coal miner in Yorkshire many years ago!
