Welcome to Year 5. Please click on the link to the left to access your class page.

Welcome to Year 5. This year, the children will experience lots of fun learning activities both inside and outside the classroom. Please find information on our curriculum maps to see what we’ll be doing each half term, as well as keeping up to date with our year group half termly newsletters.

Reading Update

Dear parents,

From today, all KS2 pupils will have the opportunity to bring a book home from school. These can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. There will be no reading record to complete as yet, which is why the three Reading Plus lessons are so important.  Please make sure that book bags are only brought into school on Mondays and Thursdays. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Homework 25.09.20


Three reading lessons should be completed on Reading Plus each week. 


This week’s spellings are:

height, increase, island, knowledge, length, library, medicine, mention, naughty, notice, occasion and occasionally. Please practise these words ready for your spelling test next Thursday.

Challenge: If you scored 8 or more in your spelling pre-test, you need to choose 5 of our spelling words to put into your own sentences.  Try to vary your sentence structures like we’ve been practising in class (simple, compound and complex sentences)


On Saturday 26th September, we celebrate European Day of Languages. Your task for this week, is to create a poster with reasons why you should learn a language.

First, log on to google classroom and you will find an assignment set up with the title ‘Why Learn Languages?’. Click on to this and then click on the pencil to edit the document. You have the choice of using the blank version or the one with questions as a prompt.
