Year 5

I hope that you’ve all had a wonderful break and have enjoyed a well deserved rest! This term we have got a wide range of topics to get our teeth into. We will be exploring the outer reaches of the universe in Science, learning about Rivers  in our topic, ‘Ferry across the Mersey.’ We will also be creating our own computer games in Computing (to name just a few topics). If you all return with the keenness and enthusiasm you showed last term, we will have another fun and productive term.

Throughout, the year we are looking for the children to demonstrate our school values such as honesty, team work and determination so that they can win raffle tickets for their team.


Some important information for Year 5 parents/carers:

  • Homework- Spelling will be given out every Monday to be tested on a Friday. Further English and Maths homework will be given out on Friday and should be in on Wednesday.
  • PE- Both classes will now have gymnastics on a Tuesday and swimming on Thursday.
  • Reading - All children will have a home/school reader and a school library book but should also be encouraged to read widely, daily, from a range of other reading material at home (Newspapers, magazines, internet articles). Please engage and discuss your child’s reading with them (ask questions) as this will help to develop comprehension and encourage them to form opinions.
  •  Spelling Rules - Each week the children will receive a spelling rule to take home and study. This task will be set on Monday. Then on Friday, they will be tested on this spelling rule.


Year 5 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish. Book bags should be brought in everyday so children do not miss any opportunities to read to an adult.
