Year 5



Miss Wayman and Mrs Jones


Welcome to Year 5!


In Year 5, we always follow in Jesus' footsteps, with God at the centre of our lives.  We work hard, show wonderful behaviour and act as excellent role models for the younger children.




Children have two PE lessons delivered by our sports coach on Mondays and Tuesdays – children should come dressed in their PE uniform on those days please, with earrings already removed.  




Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday – this is to accommodate children's busy weekends!  If children need any help with their homework or wish to do their homework in school, we are available on Monday and Tuesday lunchtimes for this.  Please do feel free to comment on your child’s homework regarding how they got on with the task and any difficulties which they found – this information is all very helpful to us when evaluating children’s learning!


Please encourage children to read every night and to continue to practise their fluency with recalling their times tables by using Times Tables Rockstars.


Spellings are set on a Friday for testing on the following Friday.  They are set on Spelling Shed and a copy is also stuck into their reading record/homework diaries.




In Year 5, we are learning how to play the violin.  Please make sure violins are returned by Thursday for the music lessons on Mondays.  


Other organisational details


Children need to have their reading record/homework diaries, reading books and spelling logs in school every day. 


Please make sure any prescribed medication is given straight to the school office if children need to be given this in school.  


Please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns – either by a chat on the playground, phone call or email.
