Year 5

Welcome to Year 5



We have included above, our Year 5 Curriculum Overview for this half term, to let you know what we are covering in each subject and what parents/carers can do at home to help further their child’s development. Please take a look.


In Year 5, we continue the school ethos and love of reading. Please continue to encourage a love of books and reading with your child, which is vitally important to their life chances. You can support their reading by, for example, joining your local library, reading with/to your child, listening to your child read, discussing books and asking ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions; you can check out our ‘Reading for Pleasure’ section on our school website for further ideas. Your child should be reading at home for at least 20 minutes every day and complete their reading record book at least three times during the week. Your child's reading record must be signed at least three times a week. After the huge success of our Whole Class Reading Challenge throughout the year group, we will continue the challenge for this year whilst also starting our Class Reading Scrap Book.  


Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom. We are focusing on reading, spelling and times tables. Please support your child to complete their homework, in small chunks, by the following Tuesday evening. 



A reminder that P.E. days are as follows:

Ash Class: Thursday and Friday

Beech Class: Tuesday and Thursday

Elm Class: Monday and Thursday


Please ensure your child is wearing the correct P.E. kit to school on their elected P.E. days. 


We are looking forward to having a great half term with lots of learning and success. Thank you for your on going support of your child's learning. Please, if you have any queries, you can email us at
