Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 and a warm welcome from both of us; Mr Chin (5AC) and Mr Cross (5GC).


This is going to be a very busy and exciting year for your children and we hope them, and you, are looking forward to the things we have planned.  They have the privilege of learning to play the ukulele this year as well weekly music sessions where the children will experience playing the xylophone and drumming.  Much of our learning this year is topic, or theme based, which allows the children the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills across the curriculum and really delve deeper into the topic that we are studying.  So far this term, we have begun to enjoy our topic of World War II and our book of Friend or Foe. 


Year 5 expectations:

  • The children in 5AC must bring their ukulele in every Monday.
  • We ask that you must hear your child read at least 3 times a week and leave comments in their diaries.
  • New spellings will be given out on a Friday in readiness for a spelling test on the following Thursday.  There is no requirement this year to have a separate book in which to do the spellings or to write sentences for them, we only ask that they learn them off by heart in preparation for the weekly test.
  • Homework is also Topic based and each child has the opportunity to choose a minimum of one task from three sections (Be a Writer, Be a Detective and Be an Artist.)  Children have most of the term in which to complete this homework and it is not due back until 22nd November.  We will upload photos of their homework to our Year 5 page as it is handed in.
  • Please also note, Year 5 have PE on Thursdays.


If you have any concerns or queries, do not hesitate to speak to either of us.


We look forward to seeing you throughout the year at Family Fridays, Marvellous Maths Mondays and on our school trips.
