Welcome to Year Five

Welcome to the Year 5 class page. As ever, we have a busy term planned. We will be reading great novels: Street Child and looking at local literature, which will provide a focus for much of our English work.   

We really appreciate your ongoing support and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Reading Books can be returned to school and changed when read at home.  Children should be changing their books at least once a week.

PE Days: PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday.  Every alternate Tuesday we go swimming and children will know which week we are on.

Pupils must come to school wearing school PE kit.  

Please remember that PE kit during these guidelines is as follows: 

  • Blue shorts 
  • White t-shirt 
  • Plain navy tracksuit 
  • Navy blue jogging bottoms/leggings 
  • Plain navy blue sweatshirt/jacket 
  • PE Kits should have no logos on. 

Homework:  Homework will be set on a Monday on Google Classroom and should be completed by the following Monday. 

In Year 5 children are expected to: 

  •  Read 3 times a week to a parent and complete their online Reading Plus challenges. 
  • Practise their arithmetic/number bonds/times tables 3 times a week. Remember pupils have access to Timestable Rockstars to support them in their learning.
  • Practise their spellings on Ed Shed 3 times a week.  Spellings will be tested weekly on a Thursday, using Ed Shed. 

Spellings will be tested weekly on a Friday.
