Year 5

Welcome to our Year 5 class page. 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: 5AC and 5JC. Miss Coppell teaches 5AC and Mr Casswell teaches 5JC. In addition, Mrs Warren, Mrs Prescott, Miss Beard, Mrs Cousins and Miss Marianna work across both classes.

Our Classrooms


Reading in Year Five

We bring our reading book and blue journal into school every day, to be checked, and it will be changed on a regular basis when necessary.  The children should read each night as part of their homework but an adult should hear them read, adding a short comment and initial, 3 times a week

Homework in Year Five

Weekly homework activities include:

  1. Reading Plus or IDL tasks online (they have their own logins)
  2. Weekly spellings from their booklet (practise each day ahead of Friday test)
  3. Reading their school reading book each day for at least 5-10 minutes
  4. TTRockstars (times tables practice for 5 mins) or other maths related activities

If your child cannot remember their log-on details, please message their class teacher on Class Dojo.

Pupils will receive a spelling booklet for each half term with the different spelling rules and keywords to learn over those weeks.  They should complete the relevant page of the booklet and practice the words each night through the week in order to be ready for their spelling test on Fridays.

On occasion, there may be other homework activities linked to topics or other subjects e.g. researching castles in History as a half term project.

Here is the link to the key words that the children need to learn to read, spell and use by the end of the year
