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
24th July

Now we are coming to the end of Year 5, it has been great seeing the progress that the children have made throughout the year, and how they have developed as individuals.

The last two days of term will be less formal – the children are welcome to bring in board games or non-electronic games or activities.   It will be their responsibility to look after them in school.   Please do not send in any electronic devices.

We will be reminding the children to take home all their belongings at the end of the year.  If you have any school reading books or library books please could you make sure that they have been returned. 

We’d like to wish you all an extremely enjoyable summer holiday, and hope your children all return refreshed in September.
