Year 5

Hello Class 5! 


Welcome back to school!


Below are a few important things to know for this year:



In Year 5, you should be reading for a minimum of 30 minutes each day. Please record what you have read each evening in your diary. 


Home Learning:

Homework will be on-going and will be sent home on a weekly basis.

  • ENGLISH - English comprehension and grammar homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and will be due no later than the following Tuesday.
  • MATHS - Maths homework will be sent home on a Thursday and will be due no later than the following Wednesday.  A list of Times Tables will be sent home for a test, also on a Friday.
  • READING - Reading should be recorded each evening in your diaries. 
  • TOPIC - There will also be a topic homework every half term. 
  • SPELLINGS/MENTAL MATHS  - You will be tested on 10 spelling words per week and have a times table test once a week on a Friday (please see the schedule below for the Autumn term) 



PE will take place on Thursday afternoons this half term. However, please make sure you have your PE kit in school each day in the event that there are any last minute timetable changes... 


Guitar Lessons:

As part of our Year 5 music curriculum, you will receive weekly guitar lessons. These will take place every Wednesday afternoon commencing Wednesday 13th September. The guitars will be provided for you ... but you can use your own if you have one!
