Year 5

Welcome to Year 5's Class Page!


Class Teacher: Miss Dyer

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Beard and Mrs Fenton


We have had a great start to the new school year and everyone is settling into life in year five, extremely well.


Our target this term is to listen to instructions carefully to ensure: we present our work neatly, complete any given task correctly and retain new information we have been given.


 This term, we will be reading a range of different genres as our class text.





Homework will be given out on a Friday  and will be collected in on a Tuesday/Wednesday (including home reading books and signed reading records).  If you/your child have any questions about the homework, please do not hesitate to speak to myself or Mrs Beard.


Homework catch-up session are run on a Wednesday lunchtime in Year 5.


Remember to practice those spellings and times tables!




Have a go at using some of these  Reading Questions at home with your ‘home reading’ books or any other texts, you enjoy reading.

Swimming and PE:

This term on a Friday we will learning a range of skills through gymnastics and dance. Children will be exploring different movements, actions and balances, linking and sequencing them together to perform and evaluate. This will allow children to work on their resilience, understanding the importance of good-quality performance, evaluation, communication and reflection skills. 


Please ensure your child comes with suitable clothes, every week:

- Black jogging bottoms, trainers, socks, a black/grey jumper/sweatshirt or jacket and a white t-shirt.

This year P.E. will take place on Friday  but for ease, we have suggested that all PE kits are brought into school on a Monday and returned home on a Friday.

* If your child wears earrings, please ensure they come with something they can store these in to prevent losing them during PE/Swimming.

* If your child has long hair, please ensure they bring a hair bobble that day.


Year 5 is such an exciting year, with some really interesting topics and lots of new skills to learn. If you’re interested in what we’ve been up to and what we have to come… Take a look at the Year 5 Overview:
