Year 5 Home

Welcome To Our Year 5 Home Page

Here you will be able to find out key information and specific updates for all children in Year 5, along with a chance to catch up with what your child has been up to in school. You will find content for both Y5 classes on this page so even if we have mixed the children for a particular activity, you will still be able to see what your own child has been up to easily in one location. 

To the right-hand side (or possibly below if viewing on a mobile device) you will see links to our wider content such as our Year 5 Blog and further down the page you will see the latest posts from our class Twitter Feeds.

At the very bottom of the page, we will post any useful documents that you or your child might need this year. Most of these will open in a new window but should be available for download if you wish to keep a copy.

Whilst many updates will come through the Latest News area in the Parents Section, its worth keeping an eye out in here too...

As ever, we hope your child will have a great time in Year 5, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any worries or need to update us on anything of a more sensitive nature. 

Kind Regards,

Mrs Goodinson and Mr Donnelly

Key information for Parents & Guardians

Daily Routines

Please see the attachment below for a full outline of our week in school.

Lunch Menu Choices

Please see the attachment below for our latest dinner menu.

PE Kit

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. We ask that children have their P.E. kits in school all week. PE kit includes black shorts and white T-shirts with pumps or trainers. Children should also bring an outdoor PE kit for Wednesdays. This could consist of a tracksuit, jogging bottoms, hoodie, jumper or fleece and trainers. We would also ask that parents remove earrings on PE days if children cannot do this themselves.

Reading Diaries

Reading Diaries will need to be brought to school every day. Children are expected to read at least 3 times per week and log this in their diaries. Children receive Dojo points each time they read at home and teachers check these daily.


Our library day is Thursday and so children will need to bring their library book each Thursday. They have the choice of swapping the book if they have read it or keeping it to finish their book. 

Supporting Your Child's Learning

As well as reading at home, the children have been given a homework menu (in their homework books) with a huge range of exciting activities designed to encourage families to get creative together. Homework tasks can be taken from the menu and completed at any point during the week. The suggestion is for one piece of homework to be completed per week, but we encourage children to have a go at whichever tasks they choose. Dojo points will be awarded for every piece of homework that is completed. As well as the homework tasks, children can practise their times' tables and work on their spellings. Passwords for Times Table Rock Stars are in the back of your child’s reading diary. 

Singing Assembly

In our singing assemblies we try to share the love of singing together. We choose a range of modern and classic songs and also take requests from the children. By clicking on the link below, you will be able to see some of the content we use on our purpose-built website. You can practice and sing along at home to help raise your confidence and learn some of the more difficult parts within the songs. Click Here to visit our Singing Assembly Website.
