Year 5

The Year 5 team welcome you all back after Christmas and hope you had a wonderful time. We are so proud of how all the children worked last term and hope that this term will be the same! We are going to have a very bust term full of experiments, practical activities and creations.

Attendance is vital for your child’s education. If you child is away for one day, their learning is put on hold and they have more pressure to catch up. We understand that all children get ill, and now more than ever, we’re all aware of being ill, however we’d encourage them to attend school whenever possible to ensure they reach their full potential and make the most out of their time in primary school.

PE Information

Year 5 will continue to have PE every Monday and Friday. Ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available for both days and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home at least 4 or more times (reading books and diaries should be in school every day)
  • TT Rockstars 
  • Spelling practice via Spelling Shed (spelling tests are every Friday)


Our Spring work is going to be based around the theme of the Vikings. The main focus will be what Viking life was like, researching where they came from and who they were.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the year 5 team.
