Y5 Laurel

Welcome to Y5 Laurel

Weekly Reminders

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

Your homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on a Wednesday 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 in September, with black school shoes



In September, we will start reading Shadowsea by Peter Bunzl so please listen to Mrs Nolan's soothing tones below reading you the prologue and first chapter of this fantastic book! 


    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 - 


    Thank you for your continued support

    Mrs Nolan, Mrs Morgans, Mrs Reynolds-Smith

    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.
