Year 5

Welcome to our Year 5 Class Page. Mrs Mason, Mrs Williams and I are so excited for the year ahead. We have so many fantastic opportunities and we are going to be very busy learning so many new and exciting things!

Make sure you check this page and our school twitter page regularly, as they will be updated with key information and pictures of our journey in Year 5.

Please find some key information below that you may find useful.

Key Information


Children will read at least twice a week with an adult and children’s books will be changed on these days. Children are given reading books to take home with their Reading Record. Please comment in the planner when you have listened to your child read. If your child reads any additional books at home for pleasure, it would be lovely to see this in their reading record too.

Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day (even if they haven’t read at home). 


Reading books
15 spellings – 10 that have a spelling rule and 5 that are taken from the statutory spellings for years 5.
Maths and English homework will alternate each week.

Homework is set on a Monday and is to be returned on a Thursday.

Water bottles and snacks

It would be brilliant if every child has a named water bottle in school to enable them to drink as much as possible, especially when the weather is warm and for after P.E. lessons. There will be a water bottle station within the classroom that children will have access to at all times.

As we are trying to look after our environment, bringing a reusable water bottle enables us to be more sustainable. 

If your child would like to bring a snack for playtime, we encourage them to eat a healthy snack.

PE and Swimming

Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Children will need to come into school wearing their PE kit. They will keep this on for the full day.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you for your support,

Miss McHugh
