Year 5 2023 - 2024

Christmas 2023.

This year, Year 5 will be performing some Christmas carols at topsite. Parents and carers are invited to join us on Thursday 21st December for some festive singing at 2.30pm. Once finished, you will be able to take your child home with you from school.


Your child is invited to wear Christmas jumpers on the final three days of term (20th-22nd December). There is no need to go out and buy Christmas jumpers if you don't already have one, your child may wear something festive for example, a red or green tshirt, festive bobbles or socks. 




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. Watch out for continual updates on our blog to see what our Year 5s have been up to. 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.

On Monday 3rd July, we hosted a well-attended Zoom meeting for parents of the new Y5. The presentation can be found here for your reference. The recording of the meeting can be found here.

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 or an activity from their homelearning books (these are saved on Google Classroom via a link). 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.
