Welcome to Year 5!

We are pleased to welcome you to the Year 5 page. The main need-to-know information can be found here as the year progresses.

If you have a general query, please email If your query requires a more immediate answer, please email and we shall endeavour to reply as soon as we can.

The Year 5 children had an assembly about the theme of road safety. Feel free to discuss this with your children. Helpful slides from the presentation can be found here

Last summer, on Thursday 30th June, we hosted a well-attended Zoom meeting for parents of the new Y5. The presentation can be found here for your reference. Glance at the Y5 overview to see which topics will be covered throughout the year. To familiarise yourself with the site on Claremount Road, have a watch of Miss Pickering's tour of Top Site

Homework will be given to children in Year 5 each week, on a Friday. The homework each week will include 4 home reads (with an adult and reading log signed). It is advisable to listen to your child read and ask them questions related to what they are reading, so that there is a focus on comprehension and understanding rather than simply the amount read. In Year 5, we use VIPERS for reading questions . Click the link at the bottom to access a copy of these to practise with your child.

Children will also be expected to complete a piece of maths homework each week, this may be TT Rockstars, Mangahigh or another activity. Your child's teacher will let them know each Friday what the homework is, and you can also check Google Classroom. Each child will also be set a task weekly on Spelling Shed.
