Year 5


Welcome to Year 5, Rauf and Paver Class. 

We are really excited about this year and are looking forward to working with your children. 

This year, the classes at Kingsnorth are named after excellent authors. In Year 5 we have chosen Michelle Paver (Wolf Brother from the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series) and Onjali Q Rauf (The Boy at the Back of the Class, The Star at my Window). We have already begun examining our authors and their work and are thoroughly enjoying learning all about them.  

Please see attached newsletter for information about our work in class this term. Just some general reminders:   

  • Please ensure children wear appropriate for the season P.E. kit to school on a Tuesday for our weekly PE lesson. We will let you know when it is the block of PE and then kit can be worn all week. 
  • In Year 5 we work hard together to promote a love of learning and an independent, growth mindset approach to our work.
  • The teachers in Year 5 are always willing to talk to parents about their children's wellbeing and learning. We endeavour to respond to emails within the next working day and are happy to talk with you whenever needed at mutually agreed time.


    We will update the website with notices as an when we have them! 

    At the moment are focus is ensuring everyone is safe and happy and therefore able to continue their learning. For home learning, we would like the children to concentrate on practising their times tables and reading both AR books and their own books. 

  • Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you have, however small they may seem.

Looking forward to a great term,

Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley
