Love to Learn, Together with the Lord

Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class page!

Year 5 is an exciting year as the children continue their journey through school.

Our classroom environment is based on encouragement, fun, resilience, hard work and trust! We follow our Ruby Rules and support each other in all our endeavours. Year 5 is a very supportive and caring place to be!

We have lots of exciting topics this year which the children will love and some fantastic texts to read! 

We value the support you give your children at home and by working as a team we will have a very successful year!

Miss Platt and Mrs Barnes 



Please listen to your child read as often as possible. The more your children read the more progress they will make. Please make comments in your child's reading diaries and if you have any questions at all please let us know. Books will be changed regularly. Each week there will be an award for our 'Reader of the Week'.


Our Author this half term is:

Brian Selznick

The Invention of Hugo Cabret By Brian SelznickBobby Bank/WireImage



Spellings will be given out every Friday for a test on Thursday. This year we are focusing on Handwriting and so spellings will be given on a sheet that enables your child to practise their handwriting daily. Spellings will also be uploaded to Spelling frame for the children to practise. 


Children will be set a piece of maths homework each week to be handed in each Thursday, this will relate to what we have been learning about in class that week. 


Times tables are an important part of a children's education, every Friday we will be having a focus on these and encourage children to practise daily for 15 minutes on TT Rockstars.

Thank you for your support.


As part of the National Curriculum we will have two hours of PE a week. Our PE day is Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week. This is a school t-shirt in their team colours or a white plain t-shirt and blue or black shorts. Please send then with trainers rather than pumps too as we do try and get outside as much as we can. 



Don't forget to check Seesaw for regular updates on what your child has been learning about. There's lots of pictures and videos to see

Year 5 Learning 2022-23

Here is what we will be learning in Year 5 this year. Please encourage your child to discuss what they have learnt during the year and we love seeing projects the children have done at home.

 Knowledge organisers

At the start of our new topics in our subjects we share with the children the what we will be learning. They then have a copy of this to refer back too. We find this helps the children to retain what they have been learning in class. It also encourages them to ask questions relevant to the topic. This is the knowledge organisers so far this year.
