Please continue to use the Home School reading journals when you read with your child every evening. If you need a new one, please let the class teacher know.


Homework will be sent home every Friday, along with the spellings for the following week's test. This will be due in on the following Wednesday. Please see your child's class teacher if there are any issues with completing homework. 


All of Year 5 will have P.E on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings their kit in.

Autumn 1 Spellings

The spellings for this half term can be found at the bottom of this page. Please continue to practise with your child regularly. They will be tested every Friday.


We will be booking trips for this Autumn half term shortly, as well as the Green Trips, and will let parents know when these are sorted. If you would like to accompany your child's class on a trip please do let the class teacher know.

A secondary school  information meeting was held for last year's Year 5 parents and carers. At the bottom of the page are the full notes of the meeting which include useful links as well some pointers to think about when choosing a school for your child. These might still be useful for the new Year 5 classes.

These are suggested books for home studying should you want your child to practise at home. They are very useful for developing test skills.
