Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Miss Cartwright and Mr Kemp


Year 5 had a great afternoon this week at a netball and football festival with other schools. We turned up and needed to use our growth mindset from the outset. However, we did exactly that and learnt the positions of netball really quickly. Every child did their best in every game, showed a positive attitude and most importantly had fun! One team managed to make it to the semi finals in football and one of the netball teams made it to the final in netball. What a great afternoon and well done to you all :)

Year 5 Home Learning


Learning Logs


Learning Log tasks will  appear on the Year 5 Class Page on a Monday and then come home stuck into your Learning Log on a Wednesday as they always have. This home learning will need to be handed in on the following Monday. Be creative and have fun!





It is really important that you read a range of texts (from novels to newspaper reports). You do not have to read to an adult but it is great if an adult can ask you questions about what you have read. We expect you to read a minimum of five times a week and record this in your home/school communication books. These will be looked at on a Monday (5K) and a Tuesday (5C).




Your Maths home learning will come home on a Wednesday and be due in on the following Monday to your class teacher. Each week, along with your Maths home learning, you will get some times table work that you need to complete. It is really important that you develop instant recall of times tables up to 12 x 12 so please be practising!




Our spelling procedure has changed this year! This term a spelling rule and words including this rule will come home on a Monday (following a spelling lesson based on the rule) and words will be tested on the following Monday. We recommend that you practise your spellings for 5 minutes or so each day rather than a longer period all at once.
