Welcome to Year 5!

This page will be updated throughout the year with galleries showing the children's learning as well as other useful documents such as the termly curriculum booklet and information regarding homework. 


Spellings:  Spellings will be sent home weekly to practise via Seesaw, or on paper copy if requested.

Reading:  We encourage children to read widely, so please feel free to read any books at home and log these on Boom Reader, equally children are also encouraged to log their own reading. All children* have the opportunity to choose a home/school reading book which can be independently changed as required. They also have the opportunity to choose a library book.

(*Some children might still be bringing home a scheme book, but this will be based on an assessed need)


P.E. days for the Spring Term

Monday       – Swimming

Friday          - Dance      

Please ensure P.E. kits are in school, and that swimming kits are brought to school on the designated day.


Home/School Partnership:

Please let me know, via the school office (email or phone), if there are any changes to pick up routines, or if you have any questions or concerns.

You are also most welcome to visit our classroom every Friday after school (3.15-3.30pm), where your child can show you work from the week of which they are particularly proud.
