Back to School

Welcome to Year Five!

Learning in Year Five

We firmly believe that the pupils should be the drivers of their own learning. We help pupils to set their own targets and give them the materials needed to achieve them. Once the pupils take ownership they are then highly motivated to improve. We do this through regular ‘low stakes’ assessments as well as using pupils’ questions to drive our topic curriculum.

Important Information

PE: Our PE days are currently on a Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school on these days. More information about correct uniform for PE Days can be found on the school website.

Reading Books: Every pupil has a reading record and a ‘banded’ book from school. Pupils should read at home daily and change their book during guided reading classes. Reading records will be checked on a Friday.

Home Learning: Pupils have been given a topic learning grid and can choose a task each week. Also we ask that pupils use Times Tables Rock Stars as often as possible. Pupils have weekly spellings as well as maths and grammar tasks.

We aim to keep this webpage updated throughout the year with pictures, videos and useful information, so please do watch this space! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Best wishes,

The Year Five Team
