Welcome to Y5I


Welcome to Year 5I!

I am Miss Ibinson and I will be your teacher this year. I have been at Lingey House for 2 years now and have moved up from Year 4 with this current year group. I am a huge fan of creative and fun lessons and I can't wait to show you what we have in store for you over the next 9 months.


Our fantastic teaching assistant this year is Mrs. Martin and she will be helping us to be the absolute best we can be and learning lots of amazing, new things. I am sure we are going to have the best year yet!

What an absolutely fantastic, magical time we have had in Year 5I this year. I just wanted to say a personal thank you to each and every one of the parents and children who have made this year so special. I am very blessed to do the job that I do and I have loved every minute of this last academic year. I hope you have a fantastic summer holiday and the children come back ready to start their final climb in Year 6. I can't wait to see their hard work pay off in the future.


You are all amazing.


Miss Ibinson


Fitness Day

Today we had a session with Nicola Noble, who works for the Gateshead SSP. We had a session focussed on improving stamina and fitness levels. It was to encourage exercise at home with little to no equipment. We had a fantastic time and our hearts were racing in the end!

Surgeon Commander Elspeth Hulse - We were lucky enough to receive a talk from Elspeth today all about her job in the Navy and the amazing things she has done in her career!

Careers talk with Jane Carr-Wilkinson. Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Jane Carr-Wilkinson who is a Senior Lecturer in Physiology at Sunderland University who specialises in Neuroblastoma. She told us all about how the cells in the human body work and how different medications effect them. She also talked about being a woman in the science industry and what qualifications she needed to get her job!

Plastic Free Schools Award - we completed objective 2 today by doing a Trash Mob! We collected lots of plastic pollution from our local park!

Spring Term 1


This half term, our topic will be War and Peace during which we will look at the first and second World Wars.



Our novel for this half term is Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. We will be looking specifically at the use of dialect and description.



In Maths, we will be continuing our work on multiplication but moving on to look at written methods. We will be learning how to multiply two digits by two digits before moving on to start our fractions unit.



This half term, we are looking at forces in Science. We will be conducting lots of experiments to investigate push, pull, friction, air resistance and water resistance.

We began work on our "War and Peace" topic this half term with a visit from Richard (That History Bloke). He let us look at lots of artefacts from the second World War that belonged to local people.

We were lucky enough to go on a heritage walk with local expert David Douglass. He told us lots of fascinating things about Gateshead and all the mines that are hidden beneath our streets.

We created some striking pictures of old pit heads using watercolours and black card. Stay tuned to see the finsihed articles!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from a real miner called Barry! He told us all about what life used to be like and showed us some Davy lamps and some mining tokens too!

We had a visit from an artist named Peter who showed us how to make amazing art work out of clay and paper. We learned how to mix colours and how to choose colours which complimented each other.

In Science this half term, we have been looking at Earth and space. We made our own models of the solar system and learnt how to remember the order of the planets!

Autumn Term 2


This half term, our topic will be Our Local Area. We will be specifically looking at how land use has changed over time.



We will be finishing off our work on Holes this half term, culminating in a non-chronological report on lizards.



In Maths, we will be working on area and perimeter initially before moving on to working on multiplication including multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
