Welcome to year 5 

Welcome to Year 5, where as the children move into upper school, expectations are increased further  as we prepare the children for Year 6 and beyond. This year, Mrs Stephenson,  will support children in becoming conscientious, resilient and creative learners through an enriched and inspiring curriculum.  

On their learning journey in Year 5, they will experience a range of rewarding opportunities which will allow them to look back on their year fondly. There will be something for every child; inspiring visitors,  exciting educational visits and many hands-on, real-life experiences.

Miss Hogan, throughout the year, will work with individuals and groups of children to support their learning.

The understand the importance of making the correct 'choices', and should encourage others to have the same positive attiutude.

Homework is set weekly. It will be given out on a Monday and need to be returned by a Friday.

Maths: A reinforcement task covering learning that has taken place in school.

English - Spellings: Each week the children will study a different spelling rule. They will be given a list of 10 words to practise and home before having a test on a Friday.

English - Reading: A reading task covering elements of the reading skills delivered in school.

Reading Books: Children are required to bring reading books into school every day and regularly change them.   We would appreciate your support in signing your child’s reading diary on a regular basis.


In Year 5 we expect the children to try their best in everything they do. In return, they will be supported and challenged to achieve their potential.

The word-list for years 5 and 6 is statutory. The lists are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, but the 100 words in each list can easily be taught within the four years of key stage 2 alongside other words that teachers consider appropriate.   


We love our learning in Year 5.....
