Manor LeasJunior Academy

Where excellence and enjoyment go hand in hand

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Darwin Class: Mr Belt

Einstein Class: Mr Scott 

Rowling Class: Miss Williamson



In Year 5, students were given the opportunity to apply for our new Mini-Police scheme, which Lincolnshire Police are supporting us with. We were all given the opportunity to vote for five students in Year 6, whilst they voted for us!


We'll have five officers from Year 5 supporting patrols in school & the local community from the beginning of October 2018!

Global Goals for Sustainable Development

In Year 5, we've been learning all about Global Goals for Sustainable Development!


We created our own map of the UK, inputting our own goal-related projects such as affordable housing, hospitals, protected nature sites & sources of renewable energy, before creating personal pledges to be the change in the world!


Shakespeare - The Tempest

To kick-start the new year, we are learning 'The Tempest' by Shakespeare. We are currently learning 'all things Shakespeare' and rehearsing to prepare for a performance at The Lincoln Drill Hall - part of the Shakespeare for Schools Festival!


We've held auditions and will soon be announcing the cast!


Our weekly homework is:

  • 30+ minutes of reading per night (students have both short and longer AR books to read from and quiz on)
  • Weekly revision in CGP Y5 Maths books.
  • Fortnightly Spelling homeworks in Orange RWI5 books.


Additional home learning can be found here at:
