Year 5 2021 - 2022

Hello to all of our Year 5 children!



Our topic for this term is World War 2.

In the morning, we have maths, English and guided reading. In the afternoon, classes are taught Science, R.E., music, ICT, P.E. and topic work. Each class also has Spanish lessons with Mrs Wooley. The classes will be assisted by Mrs Smithies and Mrs Taylor.



In Year 5, we love reading!  We know that life can get busy but your child will really benefit from regular time reading with an adult at home.  Please bring reading diaries in each Monday.



Children need to ensure that they come to school in PE kit on the days that we have PE. Full participation is required for PE unless a medical note has been given.  PE sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons this term.



This term we would like the focus of our homework is times tables - essential to our success in Year 5.  Please make sure that your child practises regularly.  There are lots of ways to have a go at home: quizes with you, online games, family competitions, times table card games and songs to name a few.  Rapid recall of tables will reap great rewards in your child's maths work.


Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated and will contribute significantly to your child’s progress through school.  As always, do contact us with any concerns or queries.


Many thanks,


Class teachers
