Year 5 - Hawthorn


Welcome to Year 5 Hawthorn

Mrs McEvans

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Payne (AM)



Welcome to Year 5 and to our wonderful Hawthorn class. The year will be full of new, interesting and stimulating subjects, lessons and experiences - both in the classroom and outside in our beautiful school grounds and further afield.


We will use Twitter to regularly share examples of the learning and experiences that happen over the course of each term.


We are very excited to start working with you and helping you succeed in all aspects of your year with us, so please let us know if we can help in any way.  Mrs McEvans can be contacted on

This year, children are to come into school in full school uniform and get changed into their PE kits on their PE days. Please bring full PE kits into school on these days.


Reading Books

We encourage children to read for at least 30 minutes every day. We would appreciate your support in helping them to find some time every day to enjoy a book.

Children will be given a book band reading book and a 'reading for pleasure' book to take home. There will be an opportunity to change these books every Friday.




Please login into Atom Prime each week: 


English and maths will be added every Thursday.


The spellings for this year are below. Children will have spelling lessons in class and activities and quizzes throughout the week. Weekly spellings will be written in purple spelling books and these are to be brought into school each day. We would appreciate your support in reminding children to practice these words at home.
