Welcome to our wonderful Year 5 page!

We are very passionate about our learning in year 5 and love to find creative ways to do things. We love to learn, debate, inspire and challenge each other. We also love to talk about the things we are learning so please stop us to ask what we have been learning about.

We know how important reading is in Year 5, so we encourage as much reading as possible at home. Reading books should be brought into school everyday as we like to squeeze some reading into any opportunity we have. Books are changed as children need them changing. Please try and listen to your children read at home as much as possible it really is a key skill that is so important to learning.


PE is every Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. Children are to come to school in their PE kits on those days. We will endeavour where we can to do PE outdoors so please make sure children have appropriate dress for the days weather


New spellings are given out to children on a Friday and they are testing the following Friday. We currently have two spelling groups in class and children are in a group that is suitable for their ability. Spellings are uploaded to Seesaw on a Friday do children are able to find them when they need to, we also use Spelling Shed to aid in spelling practice.



Times tables are extremely important. Children need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts for all times tables. Please practice these at home regularly. All children have access to Times Table Rockstar and this is a fantastic tool to helping them learn and recall their tables.



I’d like to think we are very approachable in Year 5 and always want to help where we can, if you have any concerns or questions then please do not hesitate to drop me an email.

Let’s have an amazing year.
