Background Slideshow

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 smiley

The Year 5 team consists of Mrs. Corkhill (5JC), Miss. Chambers (5KC),

Mrs. Woodward and Mr. Tilley

Key information:



A piece of Maths and a piece of English homework is given on Thursdays, with the expectation that it is returned the following Tuesday. Homework is either revision of previous learning or reinforcement of learning that has taken place during the lesson. If your child has a problem with the homework, please ask them to talk to their class teacher who will be happy to help.



As in previous years, all the children have a school reading book and a reading record. They are encouraged to bring these home daily and regular reading remains the greatest support that parents can offer their children. As children progress in reading, discussion of the books becomes more important than listening to them read - by Year 5, the children need to be able to talk about characters and their motives and devices that a writer uses. As with all of Key Stage 2, Year 5 will be running a series of reading challenges this year to encourage reading beyond the classroom. Letters have been sent out.


Physical Education

PE is on Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their correct PE kit in on that day (we do advise that it is left in school) and that earrings are removed. On Fridays, both classes will go swimming.
