Welcome to Year 5! We are really looking forward to continuing and sharing in your learning journey this year and have planned plenty of lessons to engage, excite and inspire your learning. We hope that you all enjoy your time in Year 5 and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us on our class e-mails and we will be more than happy to support you.  


Home Learning

Home learning will be set on Seesaw every Friday at 3:30pm and is expected to be handed in by the following Friday. For their Topic Home Learning, children will need to put their homework book into the designated homework box in their classroom upon completion.


Topic home learning is set termly and we would love to see as many tasks completed from the Home Learning Ideas Sheet as possible. We would like children to complete one task a week. This term our topic is Groundbreaking Greeks.


Reading Books will be changed once your child has finished reading their book. There is a box in each classroom for the children to put their book in. We would like to encourage children to change their book at least once a week to increase their reading fluency. Please can you ensure that you sign your child's Reading Record a minimum of 3 times each week, in line with school expectations. Children need to bring their reading book into school each day; even if it doesn’t need changing.


Reading Eggs is a great way for your child to continue improving their reading and comprehension skills. The levels allow children to read a variety of genres and each book has eight different activities to complete, ranging from dictionary work to answering comprehension questions. 


Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots is a great way for your child to practise their times tables and number skills. Logins can be found in the front of your child's Reading Record book.
