Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Hello from Miss Naylor, Mrs Rawle, Mrs Hill, Mrs Jeavons, Miss Hadley and Mrs Watkins. 

An exciting discovery...

Year 5 had an exciting announcement from Mr Freear. After the news of the Crooked House, Mr Freear explained that artefacts from WW2 had been found in the local area. An email to Mr Freear rumoured that there were some items in our school grounds! Year 5 were set the task to answer clues, in hopes of recovering any artefacts. The children were full of excitement - we had a lot of fun! We will leave it to the children to tell you what they discovered!


PE days in Year 5 will be as follows...

5HR: Wednesday and Thursday

5N: Wednesday and Friday


Children will need their PE kits in school on these days and should come to school with earrings removed and hair tied back. 

In PE this term, Year 5 will be practising their skills in Gymnastics, Dance, Tag Rugby and Volleyball. 

Homework and Home Learning

Year 5 will receive three pieces of homework each week: English, Maths and Spellings biweekly. English and Maths homework will be given out on a Wednesday to be returned the following Wednesday where it will be shared in school. This homework will support the children's learning in school and should take at least 30 minutes to complete. 


Spelling tests take place every other Friday. The children will need to bring their yellow spelling books to school on this day. Biweekly spellings will be supported by a given task. This may be a homework sheet or it may be a written task which can be completed in the children's yellow spelling books.


We encourage daily reading practice at home and also regular practice of basic maths skills, including times tables.
