Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Stuart - Class Teacher



All members of staff in Year 5 work together to provide your child with a high-quality education, aiming to make lessons 'Meaningful, Memorable and Motivating'. We strive to make learning enjoyable in Year 5 and we aim to incorporate the 'Seven Skills of the Steward' in our learning to ensure that all children succeed as young learners of the future. Those skills are:


Team-working   †   Problem-solving   †   Creativity   †   Peace-making

Empathy   †   Resilience   †   Gratitude


In Year 5 our super skill focus is empathy.



Home learning is an important part of children’s education which we aim to make accessible for all children. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning every week as it will have an impact on their learning in school.


Your child will receive homework on a Friday, including the weekly spellings. The homework will usually consist of either maths, grammar and punctuation or comprehension activities. This will be due the following Thursday - if children are struggling with their homework, I encourage them to bring it in by Wednesday so we can go through it together before it is due.


Spellings - We will continue to use Spelling Shed where your child can practise their spellings through fun and interactive games. 


Reading - Your child is expected to read on a nightly basis for between 10-15 minutes, either to an adult, older brother or sister or to themselves. Your help with this is highly appreciated. Please ensure your child’s reading book and diary are in school EVERY DAY.


Times tables - This is an ongoing exercise. Times tables underpin a lot of mathematics so it would be advantageous to the development of your child to keep checking their progress at home. Regular practice on Maths Shed or hit the button would be beneficial.


If your child is struggling with any element of their home learning, please send me a message via class dojo.



Year 5's PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon, please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their full PE kit on these days. If you'd like to take a look at what we are learning about, please see our long term plan in the link below. 



We can't wait for the year ahead,


Mrs Stuart & the Year 5 team!
