Year 5 is the beginning of Upper Key Stage 2 and we will be concentrating on honing our writing and mathematical skills in readiness for Year 6. The pupils have a chance to really bond and get to know each other as a whole year group when we go away for our exciting residential trip to Dorset, in the summer term (subject to Covid related restrictions - TBC).

The Year 5 Team

The teachers in Year 5 are Mrs Willis (5W), Ms Hamilton (5H) and Mr Bromley (5B).

How you can help at home 

Regular reading is still highly important in Year 5 so please do continue to hear your child read as well as encourage them to read for pleasure independently. All children are expected to read regularly at home and record in their reading records. Year 5 pupils need to develop their inference and deduction skills so asking them questions about what they have read will really support them.

Spelling is a very important part of the Year 5 English curriculum and therefore a new list of target words from the National Curriculum will be sent home every week to practise, in a red folder.

It is our aim that all pupils move up to Year 6 having excellent, rapid recall of times tables up to 12 so pupils are tested every week. Please check your child’s red folder every Thursday for their current times table target
