Welcome to 5D's Class Page 2021-2022
Hello, my name is Mrs McGreevy and I will be Class 5D's Teacher for the Summer Term. I have been at OLSG since February working with different groups of children throughout Key Stage 2 and have had the privilege to work with the children in 5D for the past few Friday's and get to know them. Mr Delayney had some wonderful things to say about the class and tells me they are really good learners! I am really looking forward to teaching the children this term and getting to know them and yourselves better. We have lots of exciting and enriching topics and work to come this term, as well as preparing ourselves to become Year 6's after the summer break. Year 5 are proud of what they have accomplished so far and have made some lovely memories. I am excited to be involved in making more memories with them over the next few months.
Our classroom is a happy and positive working environment where praise and encouragements are used to motivate, support and empower all of the children. We ask that each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning. We value the support you give your child at home with reading, spelling, learning times tables and delving into any topic based research or interests your children may express.
The Curriculum Overview for learning for the year is shared on this page. It gives a brief outline of the subjects and learning objectives we will teach throughout Year 5. We will continue to update this page periodically, sharing details of our exciting learning experiences and include any useful links to support your child’s learning from home.
Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any questions throughout the year.

Recommended Reading Books
We have selected these recommended reading lists from Peters Education to ensure that our children have access to a wide range of books. These books are all available in school and form our 'core' texts in our class libraries. These lists are chosen because they:
- link with our curriculum for each year group
- represent different cultures
- introduce children to new authors and expand their knowledge of familiar authors
- ensure progression
- match topics of interests for our children
- tackle current themes
