Y5 Laurel

Welcome to Y5 Laurel




Welcome all to Year 5 - Summer.


Summer term already!  I hope everyone is well rested and ready for the term ahead.  We have lots of learning to complete in all subjects and by continuing to work on growing our brains and developing new skills: I am confident we will all have a successful summer term.  Keep up to date with our class by following us on Twitter @firsprimarysale #Year5Laurel


Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Smith, Mrs Reynolds-Smith, Miss Abraham.

Weekly Reminders

Our PE day is Tuesday, so please make sure you are dressed in your school PE kit on this day

Your homework will be given out on a Wednesday and needs to be returned on a Tuesday at the latest

Please ensure you are reading at least three times per week and that you bring your reading record in everyday (they will be checked regularly)

Please ensure you are dressed in full uniform everyday, with black school shoes



    We expect children to read at home on a regular basis in year 5 and keep practising the rapid recall of their times tables up to 12x12. For the first half term each week, children will receive a piece of literacy home learning, a piece of maths home learning and fifteen spellings to learn. In the second half of the term, children will receive a home learning project to last the full half term as well as weekly spellings.  


    If there are changes to the weekly routine or there are any issues that arise, please let us know by contacting school either by phone or email -

    Our Art Gallery

    Art is a lesson which gives us the opportunity to express our creativity. Sometimes our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is linked to festivals and celebrations in the calendar. Our units this year will be closely linked to drawing, printing and sculpting. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us! We hope you enjoy the images of our work that will be shared on here and our twitter page throughout the year.

    Our Reading Area

    As a school, we have been pushing a focus on reading for pleasure. It is very important for year 5 children to read regularly and read texts appropriate for them. In class we have our own bookcase and take part in a weekly reading for pleasure session where the children can choose to read in their own way! Children are also encouraged to share books they have been enjoying on our Bookflix Wall.

    Methods In Maths


    We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.
