Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

This year the class teachers are Mrs Redden (5 Dali), Miss Conroy (5 Gaudi) and Miss Holmes (5 Escher). Mrs Beirne, Mrs Bedford, Mrs Gadd, Mrs Watts, Mrs Bayes and Mrs O'Hanlon will also support learning across the year group. During the course of Year 5 we will continue to build on the children's independence and resilience skills and also move their learning forward by using our growth mindsets.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Space Centre Trip

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the Space Centre in Leicester.  We explored the interactive galleries, the Rocket Tower and the children particulary enjoyed the Space Show in the Planetarium and Mars Rover Challenge workshop. 

We were very proud of all the children; they behaved sensibly and showed their keen interest throughout the day.

Helping at Home

In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.  It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.

In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.

Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.

Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.

PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
