Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Find out what your child will be learning this academic year.


The teaching staff in Year 5 are Mrs Clarke (5C) and Mrs Stone (5S)
The teaching assistants are Mrs Scott and Mrs Deasey.

If you have any concerns or need to contact us, we are available between 8.30am and 8.45am every morning and at the end of the day apart from Tuesdays.


Children will need to read for 15-20 minutes every night. An adult needs to write the page numbers read and sign the reading record. Children who don’t read will be attending ‘Book Club’ at playtime, the following day, to catch up on their reading.

At the beginning of each half term, your child will be given three project-related tasks for them to complete and hand in before the holidays. The tasks include researching and art and design activities. We would really appreciate it if you could support them in completing their tasks as we would like to celebrate their hard work with other members of the school.


Spellings will be given out every Monday. Children will need to spend five minutes every night practising them ready for a test the following Tuesday.


In Year 5, children participate in P.E on Monday Tuesday or Wednesday. P.E kits are required for every lesson. Children need to bring their P.E kits in at the start of half term and we will send them home at the end for them to be washed. Our P.E kit is white T-shirt, black shorts and a pair of black pumps.


5C will go swimming every Friday afternoon and will need a swimming kit until February half term.
5S will go swimming every Friday afternoon after the February half term until July.
