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.
Tuesday – Home learning should be returned to class completed. Spelling test completed in class.
Thursday – Reading records brought to school and new home learning will be set for the following week.
Friday – Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms during poor weather and trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day.
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 -

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.
In Year 5 we have been expressing our creativity in termly Art and DT projects. Below are some examples of the fantastic work the children have produced! Children are encouraged to work independently and to make mistakes and learn from them in evaluation.
