Year 5 - Mrs Price



    We are going to be learning all about S P A C E during Autumn 1! The long term plan can be found here: Autumn 1 LTP

  • PE

    In the Autumn term we have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.

    Whenever possible these sessions will be held outside, so please ensure that all children have a full PE kit including suitable footwear. 

    This includes a white T-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and PE shoes or Trainers. Pupils may also bring a dark coloured hoodie to wear if they feel they need one.  


  • Reading Books

    Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school on a Wednesday. We encourage children to read at least twice a week but every night would be even better! Your child can earn reading certificates for reading regularly at home so please fill in their home reading record whenever they read and ensure this is brought into school on a Wednesday, along with their reading book. Pupils are welcome to read any book and you can still sign their home reading record, including online books on the Oxford Owl website. 

  • Spellings 

    Spelling is a really important part of our Year 5 work.  

    Pupils will be learning year 5 spelling patterns as well as revising previous spelling patterns, including the objectives that would have been covered during the spring and summer terms in year 4 when they completed home learning. We will be focusing on topic related spellings and common mistakes as well as non-negotiable spelling rules and patterns.

    Spellings will practised every day in school and a copy will be sent home each week to allow children to also practise at home. Please ensure any spellings sent home for pupils to learn are worked on regularly so that pupils can improve week by week. 

    Our Y5 spelling overview for Autumn term can be found here: Spelling Y5 LTP 2020

    Spelling Shed should be used as part of pupils’ home learning on a regular basis:

    Please find in this section a range of links and documents that can be used for home learning.

    Reading is a great way to relax and have fun. You all have a school reading book and I am sure lots of other books to choose from at home. School reading books are sent home on  Friday and need to be returned on a Wednesday. Children should be reading every night so please read books you have at home, from your local library or you can use our class log in for the Oxford Owl website, where you can access a range of books online. The login for this has been sent home. 



    On Pobble you will find a picture stimulus and a short section of text. You can then answer questions and complete the sentence level activity. The picture should change regularly: http://
