Welcome to Year 5!  

We are really excited about the wonderful year we are going to have and all the amazing learning and activities we are going to do.

Mrs Hankinson will be teaching 5HM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mr Mason will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. 

Miss Wing will be teaching 5NW all week.

We are also really lucky to have Mrs Robson supporting in our class during some sessions.


  • PE will be on a Thursday.  Please come into school dressed in your PE kit on that day.
  • PE kit is the new uniform style PE kit or plain black shorts/joggers/leggings with a plain white round neck t-shirt. A plain black hoody or sweatshirt may also be worn. No football kits can be worn!
  • Outdoor trainers must be worn.
  • No jewellery, including earrings or watches to be worn on PE day. Hair must also be tied back.


  • Please bring a clean, clearly labelled water bottle to school each day. No juice please.
  • Remember to bring your I-pad to school each day fully charged. This is really important as we use the I-pads for learning activities every day. There will not be an opportunity to charge your I-pad in school unless you are a pupil who, by prior arrangement, does not take theirs home. 
  • Please bring a raincoat to school each day.  We will try to get outside as much as possible, even in light rain so come prepared!


Mrs Hankinson

Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 20 years ago (start guessing my age), I completed a PGCE at MMU and have been teaching ever since. My favourite subject to teach is Art and I quite like maths too, which is funny because it was my worst subject when I was at school. I love my job, not just for those "lightbulb moments" but for the fun and laughs we get to have every day! When I am not teaching, I am looking after my two wonderful children who are 8 and 6, they certainly keep me on my toes! I love to go walking with our black lab, Buddy, travelling to new places and having fun with my family. I have thought of three interesting things to tell you about me which you might not know: 1. I have jumped out of an aeroplane! 2. I have heli-hiked on top of a glacier in New Zealand. 3. I am really interested in gardening!

I have now been at Offley for nearly ten years! I graduated over 20 years ago with a degree in Primary Education and I haven't looked back since! My favourite subjects to teach are History and RE, although I enjoy teaching across the board. I am an avid rugby fan and although I hung my boots up years ago, I get great pleasure in watching my son play and going to support our team as a family...Sale Sharks!! I love reading and I run to keep my sanity!

Miss Wing

Hi everyone! I have graduated with a degree in Primary Education from the University of Chester and am very excited to start my teaching career at Offley. I love teaching English and my favourite subject is RE. Outside of school, I love going on long walks with my dog, Harvey. I also love reading and am always looking for new book recommendations. I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and having a fantastic year!

Week Ending 27th January 

Another great week in Year 5! It is fantastic to see so many children working hard and enjoying their learning in so many ways. 

In English this week we have continued looking at our text (Arthur and the Golden rope) and have focussed on features of a myth in preparation for planning their own writing. In Guided reading the children have continued Odd and the Frost Giants. We have been looking at comparing the characters and settings within texts.

In Maths, we have continued to secure our understanding of the value of decimal places, and developed our understanding more through using the short multiplication method to multply decimals by whole numbers. We have then applied this knowledge to solve problems.

Across the foundation subjects, we have continued with our history of the Vikings and have started to design our own bridge structures using the attachment techniques we learnt last week in design and technology.

They have also enjoyed their drumming sessions with Mr Proctor, and have started learning new skills on African drums. 

In PE , the children have started Gymnastics and created balance routines on aparatus using syncronised movements.

We have also spent some time looking at allergies, how to spot if someone is having an allergic reaction and how to help them.

Well done everyone!

Stars of the week this week are : Harley and Flynn in 5HM and Gia in 5NW
