Welcome to Class 5

Useful Information for Class 5

Homework and spellings will be sent out on alternate Fridays. The dates are moving through the next term are: 30th September, 14th October, 4th November, 18th November, 2nd December.

(Spelling tests will take place on Friday morning on these dates, please can all children make sure their orange home spelling books are in school).


We follow a Mastery approach to maths and during the course of this academic year the children will cover the relevant curriculum for their year group.  The link below provides a break down of coverage for this academic year in year 5; please be aware that this may be adapted following assessment for learning within lessons.


This term we will be working on fictional stories leading up to and interlinking with our topic of the Earth and Space.  We will also be covering poetry with work on the Highwayman , explanation writing and playscripts during the course of the term.  SPAG lessons will continue to be integrated at appropriate points throughout the units of work. 


As a class we will be taking part in whole class guided reading sessions.  In addition to this, please can all children read regularly at home recording all their reading in their reading records. Please can reading records be in school daily, as we will continue to record reading with individual readers in school.


Year 5 children will be going to William Brookes for their PE on a Monday morning.  All information about this will be shared via parentmail.
