Year 5


The staff and pupils in Year 5 welcome you to our page, please come back for our weekly up-dates, including some of the letters that go out and photos of what we have been doing. We hope you find it useful and if you have any ideas on how it could be improved, please speak to one of the teachers.  Our Year 5 team include Mrs Nash (year group leader), Mrs Sexton (year group leader), Miss Steenhuis and Mrs Keane, supported by Mr Bond, Mrs Cuffley, Mrs Allen, Miss Brown and Mrs Walmsley.

Being Year 5 we aim to help the children to be ready for Year 6.  Our aim is to be the best we can be by working hard every day, supporting each other, and most of all, enjoying ourselves. It will be a challenging and busy year, but we want to make it the best year yet!



Every night your child will be expected to spend around 20 min. on homework, in addition to reading, spelling and times table practice.

Written Task:

Monday – Arithmetic

Tuesday – Comprehension

Wednesday – Maths related to class work (maybe an online or physical game too)

Thursday – Grammar, punctuation or spelling related to class focus.

For online Abacus games the children will need to use their log in:
Username: first 4 letters of their first name followed by first 4 letters of surname.
Password: password
School code: t7jg


Each task should take about 20min and will be expected to be brought in the next day. It will be corrected together in class, and checked by an adult once a week.  Any outstanding homework will need to be completed over the weekend.

If there is a valid reason or a circumstance arises when your child cannot complete their work within the given time please write a short note or see their teacher to explain.

Children are expected to read every day, but we will be checking an adult has signed the reading record once a week.  Spelling lists are given to children at the beginning of the week; they should bring their Clued Spelling book (small red book) home to show you so you can practice with them.  Note: children only have to learn words they can not spell.

Please read our parent information evening PowerPoint, which will be shared on here after the presentation, for more useful information.



This term the focus of our work will be the Ancient Greeks. Please see the link below for more details.
