Welcome to our Year 5 class pages. Here you will find information about our classroom routines and a few snapshots of the wonderful things we do in Year 5. There are two Year Five classes: 5M and 5C. Mr Mounsdon teaches 5M and Mr Casswell teaches 5C. In addition, Mrs Sass works across both classes.

Reading in Year Five

We bring our reading books into school every day and our book gets changed once a week on an allocated day (or more frequent if necessary). An adult should listen to us read every night at home as part of our homework.

Homework in Year Five

Maths Homework is given out on a Wednesday and collected in the following Monday.

English Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday.

Pupils will receive spelling practice homework on Mondays, which they should use nightly through the week in order to be ready for their spelling challenge on Friday. New spellings will be uploaded to the website every Friday should you wish to get ahead in your practice.

PE Days in Year Five

We do outdoor PE on a Friday and indoor PE on a Thursday. However, we should bring our PE kits in every Monday morning and leave them in school all week as we may do activities at other times. For indoor PE, we should wear a white t-shirt and white shorts with black pumps. For outdoor PE, we can wear a tracksuit, especially in the winter and trainers to keep our feet dry!
