Year 5 - Miss K Allen


    Year 5 Long Term Planning

    This term we are learning about…







  • P.E

    We have P.E on Tuesdays and Fridays
    Please make sure your child has a full P.E kit in school. This includes: white t-shirt, black shorts and P.E plimsolls. Trainers can be worn when P.E takes place outside. This term’s P.E topics are netball & gymnastics.
  • Reading

    Reading books will be sent home daily and we encourage children to read at home at least twice a week. Please make sure reading records are signed so children receive their well-deserved reading awards! 
    Books are changed once a week. Bug Club is also available for more reading opportunities.

  • The expectation in Year 5 is that children manage their own learning at home.
    Children now receive one piece of English and maths homework every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. If children have not had a go at their homework, they will attend homework club during Friday break time.
    They are encouraged to use Times Tables Rockstars and Bug Club to practise times tables and reading skills.

    Children have a list of spring spellings. Please encourage your child to practise these spellings as often as they can in their spelling jotter.

  • Examples of work

    We work extremely hard in our class

    Year 5 are displaying a real passion for reading. We have really enjoyed reading our new novels Private Peaceful and War Horse this term. Every lesson, we want to read more!! 



    Y5 are also displaying excellent determination and teamwork in P.E lessons and all sporting events. We try to take part in 30 active minutes of exercise per day.   Take a look at us in action! Can you help us make this 60 active minutes by the end of the day?
