Year 5

Term 5

We are hurtling through Term 5 and so far have had sunshine, showers and snow! 

This week and for the rest of the term, PE will be a Tuesday afternoon and will be gymnastics in the hall. To comply with the PE uniform policy, children must be in shorts. They are able to wear joggers over the top for the day as it is still a bit nippy! They will be barefoot in the hall, hair tied back and no earrings. 

Just a reminder that all children have logins for TTRS, Spelling Shed and Myon to ensure they are able to practise key skills in times tables, spelling rules and reading at home. 

As always, do not hesitate to get in touch via the school office if you require any further information.

Kind regards,

Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley





Welcome to Term 5!! Summer term :-)

Week 1 is PE block week, so you are able to wear the appropriate PE kit for the week so that we are able to seize opportunities should we be unlucky enough to have rain at some point. 

Check the school website to remind yourselves of what is the accepted kit. 

Really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow - have a wonderful, sunny Sunday.

Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley 




Welcome to Term 3 - a little different yet again! But you're all fabulous at adapting and moving forwards with a determined spirit. 

All work will be set on Seesaw hopefully at 8.30am. Some resources that are too big for example will also be on the website under the tab to the right. 

Please direct any questions by email to so both teachers can access them. 

As always, we are so grateful for all your hardwork and support and are here to help so just ask! 

Best wishes and of course - Happy New Year!

Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley







Carol of the Sea Swallows-NEW DATE! | Revelation Ashford

 It is official - the children in Year 5 have created art work for a brilliant 360 degree short animation! Not only that, but the animation is now available on Youtube! It was a fabulous project to be part of and the final film is charming. If you'd like to have a watch, click on this link: Carol of the Sea Swallows

Make sure you 'look around' when you're watching it - don't miss the puffins (created by 5H)!

Greetings to 5R 

Good morning you lovely people. We will be learning from home for the next 2 weeks. Every morning at 8.30am I will set the day's work on Seesaw. Sometimes the resources will be on this webiste if they are too big for Seesaw. They will be in folders to the right of this page.

You will be able to communicate with me (Mrs Riseley) via Seesaw but if parents want to contact me please use this email address to ensure your email is responded to.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you need technical support or have any issues accessing the work online and we will find an alternative way - do not struggle! 

You showed during the last lockdown how dedicated you are to your home learning and it is really important that we carry on making the fantastic progress you've been making already in Year 5. 

I will be available via email and Seesaw 8.30am - 3.30pm everyday for you to contact me and get support so you can complete your learning.

3rd November 2020 - Please see PE notice in Term 2, announcements

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
