Year 5

Happiness and Tolerance

Welcome to Year 5.

Year 5 is an important year in a child’s primary life. It equips your child with the required key skills and knowledge before they take the next and final step of primary school. We aim to ensure that the children are ready for the challenges of Year 6 (and beyond).

In Year 5, we pride ourselves on setting high expectations for the children, ensuring the children feel PROUD of who they are and what they have achieved. We aim to help children succeed academically as well as socially, learning about each other and our wider communities.

During this year your child will be taught by class teachers:

  • Mr Walmsley
  • Mr Roberts
  • Miss Javaid
  • Mr Merriman

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Mrs Delemere
  • Mrs Roberts
  • Ms Khan

Year 5 Homework

  • Daily reading 20-30 minutes
  • Weekly written comprehension task
  • Weekly spelling test practice
  • Daily mental maths practice – 10 minutes (quick recall of all times tables to 12 and associated division facts, as well as multiply and divide by 10, 100, 1000)
  • Maths and/or Grammar written homework (when a topic needs further consolidation)

In addition, each half term, we will send out a homework ‘design and make’ activity so that children have the opportunity to be creative at home. We love seeing things that have been made at home, so please encourage your child to take part.

If you have any concerns or any other pastoral issues, please speak to the member of staff on door duty at the start of the day or class teachers at the end of the day.

You can also contact your child’s class teacher directly through Class DoJo. If you require a log-in to this free app, which will allow you to monitor and track your child’s behaviour throughout their school day, please speak with the teacher at the end of the day.
