Year 5 2023 - 2024

Hello to all of our Year 5 children!



Our topic for this term is the Vikings.

In the morning, we have maths, English, spelling and guided reading. In the afternoon, classes are taught Science, RE, music, computing, PE and topic work. Each class also has Spanish lessons with Mrs Ireland and art with Mrs Cowburn. The classes will be assisted by Mrs Shaw.



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 log your reading on GoRead, which will be checked weekly.



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 the focus of our homework is times tables - essential to our success in Year 5.  Please make sure that your child practises regularly. All children have a Ttrockstars login which they will have used previously. Please ask us if you need a reminder of your child's login. There are lots of ways to help at home: quizzes 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
