Year 5

Year 5a

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 Pethybridge who will teach Butterfly Class and Miss Perry who will teach Leopard Class.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Maitland and Mrs Parker.  Additional support will be provided by teaching assistants Mrs Deyankeson and Mrs Mackie.


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.


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 5.


Lunchtime is from 12.20pm to 1.20pm.  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.
