Welcome to Year 5

Here you can get your homework, find useful links and see your amazing work.

We have three Year 5 classes this year; 5 India, 5 Japan and 5 Russia.

Year 5 Spellings for this term can be found at the bottom of the page, along with the optional homework projects.

Please check individual class pages for P.E. days.

Note - there is now a Year 5 maths homework club every Tuesday 3.30-4.00. Please ask Miss Boyd or class teachers if you would like your child to attend.


Summer Term 2

We have two topics this half term - 'Zero Hunger', in which we will be reading 'One Hen' by Katie Smith Millway and learning about business cooperatives in Ghana as part of Global Citizenship, and the Ancient Greek myth of Persephone, in which we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks and writing our own myths!

Please find links at the bottom of this page to optional topic-based homework projects and this term's spellings.

P.E. day for this term will be Thursday for all classes.

Well done to all these Year 5 children who have stayed on Green all term! 

For maths homework, your child has been given a maths work book. They must complete one page a week, to be handed in on Thursdays. Mathletics will still be set as an extension for children who wish to extend their learning. Your child will also be given some time tables to focus on each week with an informal test on Fridays. Please take the time to help your child practise their times tables.

Each child will receive a list of spellings each week. The children will be tested on these spellings the following Monday and Friday. Please take 10 minutes each day to help your child practise their spellings.

Home-school contact books have been sent home, please ensure your child reads at home for at least 10 minutes every day and sign against the correct day. This will be checked by class teachers each day.

Physical Education
Please check the individual class page for their P.E afternoon. Please make sure you child has their full school PE kit each week and please make sure each item of clothing has your child’s name in it.

Water Bottles
Please provide your child with a water bottle labelled with their names. These will be kept in class so each child will be able to access water when needed and won’t have to wait until break time.

Painting Shirts
We will be doing lots of creative artwork this term. To ensure your child’s uniform stays as clean as possible, could you please send a painting shirt into school. Please can you make sure you child’s name is on the collar of their painting shirt.
