Year 5

Year 5a

Welcome to Shark and Orca Classes

Welcome to Year 5 at Hadrian Academy we hope that you are looking forward to this year. This is an important year as it sets the ground work for Year 6 and ultimately making important decisions regarding which secondary school your child will transfer to.

Your teachers are Miss Sharma and Miss Mirza who will teach Shark Class and Miss Mills who will teach Orca Class.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Cook and Mrs Maitland.


We have P.E lessons on a Wednesday each week.  Your child needs to wear their PE kit to school.  This will include their house t-shirt, jumper, navy tracksuit bottoms, royal blue shorts and black trainers.


Swimming will take place on a Wednesday morning in the Summer term 1 for Adder class and Spring term 2 for Fox class. Your child will need to bring in a separate bag their swimming gear: swimming costume (no bikinis), hat (if hair is long, girls and boys) and towel. No goggles.  Payment for swimming can be made through your Parentmail account.  A reminder will be sent out nearer the time.


We welcome any questions you have and the best time to catch us is usually after school.  Please check your Parentmail account regularly for letters, reminders and upcoming events.  Thank you


We have lots of exciting learning planned for the year!  Please follow this link to find out more details of the exciting topics and curriculum covered in year 4.


Lunchtime is from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.  A daily register is taken for children to have either a school dinner or packed lunch.  School dinners are charged at £2.30 per meal and payments are to be made via your Parentmail account.

During our Jigsaw lessons we have been learning about how to keep our bodies safe and healthy. One of our favourite lessons was about emergency situations, including how to get help and how to put somebody into the recovery position!

We thought really carefully about how to act in an emergency, and we all agreed that being calm really helps. If you follow the website link you will be able to see a video of us in action!
