Welcome to Year 5


Year 5 is a fun and energetic place to learn. Throughout the week we become writers, historians, scientists, mathematicians and more! We pride ourselves on representing our school's values and are keen to showcase all our talents. You will always find a warm welcome in Year 5!

Autumn Term Updates


PE days are on a Wednesday and Friday


Library day will be a Wednesday


Oxford Reading Tree Book can be changed at any time.




We expect all our children to read every evening and at weekends. In Year 5, 15 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  It is important to encourage your child to read a rang of book genres / styles, but equally there is no harm in being addicted to a series or specific author!





Homework runs Friday to Friday in Year 5. Each week their will be the following homework set:


- 12 x 1 minute TT Rockstar games

- Spellings - Practice and test completed on Spelling Frame

- Daily reading with a combination of Oxford Reading Book and Reading Buddy
