Year 5



Welcome to the Year 5 class page. Mrs Mousley is the class teacher in Sunflowers class and Miss Murray is the class teacher in Fuchsias class; Mrs Taylor will be supporting in both classes over the course of the year. As a special treat, Mrs Robertson will join Year 5 every Thursday and Friday. In Fuchsias class, there are 14 girls and 11 boys. Next door in Sunflowers class, there are 10 girls and 14 boys. We cannot wait to get to know you all better and we have lots of exciting lessons and experiences planned for you. 


Class Code


Please familiarise yourselves with our classroom codes before entering either of the Year 5 classrooms; it is essential that we all follow these rules throughout the school day.


Sunflowers' Charter

Fuchsia's Class Charter



This is the Autumn time table for Year 5.  Please note that your child has PE on Wednesday. Please ensure that you have sent your child in with a pair of named trainers for these sessions. 


A Christmas Carol


It's all gone a bit Christmassy here at River View! Here you will find out about everything we are learning linked to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. 



Spring's Dynamite Dojo challenge sheet is shown below. A copy has also been sent home with homework books. Things are a little different this year so if you complete an amazing piece of art, you will have to take a photograph of it and stick it in. Please don't worry if you don't have access to a printer; send your picture to and your class teacher will print it for you. Any work will also have to be photographed with the River View badge in (this is also in homework books). Written work can be completed as normal in your books. We love looking at your homework and remember, homework wins Dojo points!




Your child has received log in details to access reading books at home. Your log in details will include a username, password and school code. If your log in details do not work or you are having difficultly accessing things, then please speak to your class teacher. We are more than happy to help!

Exciting Learning Opportunities


Online Safety


Our 5 SMART rules

Whenever we use computers, iPads, tablets or mobile phones, we will be following our 5 SMART rules…


Safe: We are careful and do not give out personal information about yourself or anyone else when chatting or posting online.


Meeting: We know that meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. We only meet someone with your parents’ or carer’s permission and even then, only when they are with us. We always remember that online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.


Accepting: We understand that accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems—they may contain viruses or nasty messages!


Reliable: When we chat online, we know it is best to only chat to real world friends and family members. Sometimes, people online might lie about who they are. We always check information found on the internet because it might not be true. We use other websites and books to do this.


Tell: We always tell a parent, carer, trusted adult or phone Childline if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. We know that we can always report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) if we are worried about online abuse or the way that someone is chatting online. 

Good to be Green


Our 'Richer' values are of great importance and everyone in the school - children and staff- are encouraged to follow them at all times. 


R- Respect

I- Independence

C - Caring

H - Helpful

E - Equality

R - Resilience


The children who choose to use their 'Richer' values and receive no red cards during the week will attend Richer Rainbow time on a Friday. Unfortunately, children who do not use their Richer values, will spend Friday afternoons with Mr Easton and Mr Crooks. 


Previous Learning

We will be spending a lot of time in the afternoons catching up on some of the Science we missed last year. During the first half term, we will be revisiting Sound. We’ll be conducting some awesome experiments too so look back at our class page for photographs soon! 


We will also be learning about Crime and Punishment through our Dynamite Dollars and English lessons. Oh, and our little rat friend... 



PE (Including Swimming)


We will update this section when we receive further guidance from the Government.
