The children in Year 5 are learning how to be independent learners. As the year progresses the children are expected to take on more responsibility within the school community including; being reading buddies with younger children and taking on specific roles within the classroom.

Year 5 are very fortunate that they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including; cultural days, art days and trips associated with current topics.

We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, always striving to be the best they can be so that they are ready for their transition to year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.

The homework policy is currently being updated so to start with, your child will be given a piece of English and a piece of Maths homework each Friday which they are to complete and return the following Friday.

As a school, we will be trying out a new style of spelling using a new programme. Further information will be given. But please continue to learn the Year 5 spellings, which you will be tested on termly to see how you get on. Click here for a copy of those Year 3/4 words.

Notice Board
Year 5 Spring Term

Welcome back, we hope you have all had relaxing break and are ready to learn.

Our topic this term is World War 2.  We have lots of exciting lessons planned for you and encourage you to do your own research to enhance your learning.  Many authors have enjoyed writing about this period of history so please read some of their books - Carrieā€™s War is a recommended Year 5 book!

In English we will explore narrative poetry, suspense stories, discussion texts and diaries.   Some of the writing will be based around our topic and we shall be supporting the children to further develop their ideas. 

It is really important for parents to continue their help with reading, spellings and recalling of times tables at speed.

In Music the children will continue playing the recorder and will learn new songs for their end of term play.
