Welcome to our Year 5 page!

Year 5 is an important year as the children start their transition in to Upper Key Stage 2 and this helps prepare them for life in Year 6 and beyond! 

Here in Year 5, we teach a broad and balanced curriculum and the children experience various topics, trips and experiences. This term we are continuing on our whole school One World journey, with a focus on 'Across the Water' looking at an The Benin Tribe in West Africa. We ensure that all children will be fully immersed in a rich, creative and exciting curriculum and environment. Please see the curriculum map below for information about what we will be learning this term.

Things to remember: 

Homework: Mymaths and will be set on a Friday to be returned on the next Friday on alternating weeks. There will be additional homework set when the class teachers feel this is appropriate. 

Reading: The children are expected to read at least three times per week for 10 per minutes and to change their reading book in the mornings regularly.  Please write a comment in the children’s reading records each time to let us know how they are getting on with their reading at home. Children are also encouraged to write their own comments in their reading records, both in school and at home. 

Spelling: Year 5 spend a great deal of time learning to spell the Year 5 and 6 National Curriculum word list.You can find a copy of this in their reading record. We hope you can support us in helping your child to use these words as often as possible in their speech and written work, spelt correctly. In addition, to support with words children often spell incorrectly they are provided a prompt sheet in the back of their English books, which also includes spelling patterns and space for a personal spelling list. A copy of this and the Year 5 and 6 spelling list can be found using the links at the bottom of the page, to support with spelling at home and homework.

Children are now provided with weekly spelling lists that follow the required patterns to learn in Year 5 and 6. The children will be tested on these weekly. 

PE: Mr Cairns will be teaching PE on a Wednesday. The children will also have an additional PE lesson on a Monday, which is led by their teacher. Please make sure you have your kit every Monday and Wednesday. 

Mrs Gatiss will be teaching Year 5 Spanish on a Wednesday.    

Water Bottles: We encourage the children to bring a water bottle each day, please ensure it is only water.  If your child is having a packed lunch please send a separate drink. 

Class Assembly: Your child will be involved in a class assembly once every half term. You will be notified of the dates on the whole school newsletter.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us at the end of the day.
