5T Mr Maskell

Welcome to Class 5T

Welcome to our exciting class page. Here you'll be able to find links to work that we do in school and photographs of all the fun we've been having.


As part of our whole school big idea of 'We are Explorers', Year 5's Summer topic is .... Raging Rivers!


As part of this topic we will study the River Ouse as it travels through York, we will visit Malham, which is the source of the River Aire and we will compare local rivers to the Amazon River.


Within our skilled based curriculum, we will be considering the following questions:

What makes a river a river?

Do we have an endless supply of water on Earth?

How do people manage living near rivers?

How can we make a bridge strong enough to carry a load across a river?

Who were the Inca’s?

How do Latin American cultures differ from our own?


Furthermore, in science we will be studying 'Materials and Changes.'

Maths Homework

You will be given a piece of maths homework once a fortnight. In year 5 we will give out homework on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Friday.  Here are a list of dates that maths homework will be given out this half term:





Racing to Read Homework!


As part of our whole school commitment to reading, in 5T it is expected that everyone aims to read at least 5 times a week. Every time your reading is recorded in your planner and signed by an adult, your car on the display will race ahead one space. Everytime you hit a multiple of 10, you will get additional stickers to help work towards your awards! When ALL class members have achieved a multiple of 10, you will all be rewarded with some extra bonus playtime!


TTRockstars Homework
Each week our class will have focus times tables to learn with the help of TTRockstars. It is expected that you will log on for a short period of time daily to improve your speed and recall. Don't forget that you will have the chance to become our Class Champion every week and to compete in Friday's assembly for a place on Winners' Row... let's keep 5T in with a great chance of winning a Pizza and Pop Party!

Spelling Shed Homework


Spellings will now be set via our brand new software 'Spelling Shed'! All children have a personal log on and can access this at home as well as school.

Please ensure this is accessed regularly and join in the fun!
