The children in Year 5 are learning how to be independent learners. As the year progresses the children are expected to take on more responsibility within the school community including; being reading buddies with younger children and taking on specific roles within the classroom.

Year 5 are very fortunate that they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including; cultural days, art days and trips associated with current topics.

We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, always striving to be the best they can be so that they are ready for their transition to year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.

The homework policy is currently being updated so to start with, your child will be given a piece of English and a piece of Maths homework each Friday which they are to complete and return the following Friday.

As a school, we will be trying out a new style of spelling using a new programme. Further information will be given. But please continue to learn the Year 5 spellings, which you will be tested on termly to see how you get on. Click here for a copy of those Year 3/4 words.

Notice Board
Year 5 Autumn 1

Year 5 had an amazing day when an Anglo-Saxon visited school.  They experienced what life may have been like 1,500 years ago, what some of the customs were and what daily life was like. We want to thank the parents and children for the brilliant costumes and shields. Throughout the rest of this term the children will continue to study this topic.   

In Science the children will learn about forces in action and will carry out investigations to support their learning.

Our focus in English will be myths.  The writing will be based around our topic and we shall be supporting the children to further develop their ideas.  It is really important for parents to continue their help with reading and spellings.

The focus in games will be tag-rugby.  The children will learn the skills needed to play the game and will conclude with an inter-house tournament.

In RE the children will be learning about the Sikh religion.  If there are any parents who would like to talk to the children about their faith please let us know.
