Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The year 5 teachers would just like to let you know a bit about what we’ll be expecting from the children this year. At the beginning of the year the children were sent home with a welcome leaflet explaining the key information they would need to know. Here is a snap shot of some of the things they were told.

Weekly newsletters will also be provided with any extra information.



In class, the children will be expected to have the following items in their pencil case:

  • 2 HB pencils
  • A 30 cm ruler
  • A handwriting pen (if you finished Year 4 with a license)
  • A set of colouring pencils
  • A rubber and sharpener
  • A glue stick (Pritt stick)


Please make sure these are ALL clearly labelled with your child’s name. All uniform and PE kit should also be named.

Children are expected to have your PE kit every Wednesday (outdoor kit) and Thursday (indoor kit).



In Year 5, your children are required to read at home with or to an adult for 15-20 minutes a day. This should be recorded on their diary and signed by an adult every day/week. This will be checked each week on a Wednesday.




Homework is set and due on the following days:


Maths/English/topic Set: Friday Due: Wednesday


Spelling Tests Every Thursday
