Year 5

Welcome to Year 5's page.


It was good to meet all the parents who attended our drop in evenings this week. Hopefully I managed to answer any of the questions you may have had. 

If anything else comes to mind please don't hesitate to ask. Either grab me at the end of the day if it's a short one or if you meed more time please see the office and we can sort out something more formal either before or after school.

Homework 21-09-17

The home work email address is now live. Children can send in any work they do at home to:


Many thanks to all who helped with the toy reports. They made good reading! We're looking at the maths again tomorrow so I'm sure the children will feedback how they did when they get home.


No maths to hand in to me this week. However if you still want them to work on their maths at home they can access Mathletics at anytime. All children have a log in but if they can't remember it I can remind them. Year 5 won the school Mathletics trophy last week and I'd like to keep it in our classroom!!! (There is a Mathletics app available from the app store if you use a tablet).


This week and next our English work is being inspired by the animation below. Wing has a powerful message relevant to us all and especially children of school age.

Our homework this week is in two parts.

Firstly I would like all the children to talk about the video and it's message at home. What do they think the video is about? What do they think is it's message? What do they think the quote at the end means? We will be discussing all of these questions over the next week in class.

Secondly I would like the children to write an outline of a sequel to Wing. On Wednesday of this week we all wrote a prequel - a diary entry written by one of the crows - and discussed what prequels and sequels are and how they differ from an introduction or epilogue. I would like the children to take their thoughts about what they believe to be the video's message and use these to form their idea of what a sequel to Wing might look like. One side of A4 is plenty. Again I'll accept work however the children prefer to submit it, handwritten, printed or emailed, it's their choice.

Any questions at all, please don't hesitate to grab me and ask after school.

Physical education

Y5 P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon; all children will need a full P.E kit consisting of shorts, T-shirt and a pair of black pumps which adhere to the school uniform policy. Earrings cannot be worn during the P.E. session therefore it is greatly appreciated if parents take earrings out before school, this will also ensure that jewellery is not lost

Home Learning:



Children need to read at least 20 minutes every night. Children can read independently, to an adult, or to a sibling. Please ensure reading diaries are signed daily.



Maths and English homework will be given out on Thursdays; maths will be given out every 2 weeks. Children also need to be practising times tables daily at home.



Children will be given spellings every Monday for a spelling test on Friday.  We work on our spellings every day in school but practice at home makes perfect!!!
