Year 5

Welcome to Year 5! There are three classes in Year 5 this year, taught by Mrs Bailey, Mrs Jarvis and Mrs Richards. Our teaching assistants are Miss Rice, Mrs Clark and Miss Deacon. On this page, you will find useful information about Year 5 including homework for the week, Forest School dates and PE days.  


At the bottom of this page are links to Curriculum content and photos of work completed in school.  


We will send home two pieces of homework each week. 

          - Maths

          - English, Science or topic 

Occasionally, we may set a project which takes longer to complete. 


All homework is given out on Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Homework - Friday 11th December                         

To be completed by Wednesday 16th December


This week, your English homework has been set on the Reading Eggs website.


You will need to login and work through the tasks set. You should spend approximately 45 minutes on this homework. If you have any problems logging in, please tell your class teacher before Wednesday so that we can try to solve any problems for you.




Forest School


Each class has two Forest School afternoons this half term. 


These will take place on the following Mondays:

5R        2nd November and 23rd November

5J         9th November and 30th November

5B        16th November and 7th December


On their Forest School days, children should be dressed in their school shirt and jumper/cardigan and jogging bottoms or sports leggings. They must have suitable footwear such as wellies or trainers, which you do not mind getting muddy.


As the weather gets colder and potentially wetter, a coat, hat and gloves will be needed. 


Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure that you have suitable PE kit in school on these days. 


Suitable PE kit is a white t-shirt, school PE shirt or house t-shirt and dark shorts or dark joggers, dark sweatshirt and trainers. 


If you have pierced ears, you will need to remove your earrings or bring in some tape to cover them during PE. If your hair is longer than shoulder length, it must be tied back. 


One of our PE units is an amazing dance scheme produced by the Royal Ballet. You may wish to buy ballet shoes or other soft dance shoes such as jazz shoes for this. These aren't essential as bare feet are fine.  


Science Resources:

If anyone has plastic fruit trays that they are recycling, could we please ask that you save them and have the children bring them into school after half term. We need them for our Science project. Thank you.

Dressing for the weather!

As all our windows and doors are open at all times - in keeping with Government guidance - it can get chilly in the classroom, especially in the mornings.  Please ensure that your child always has their jumper with them and consider if they need a vest under their shirt.

General Timetable Year 5


“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”  Plato.

We would like you to try to read at home every day. You can read to yourself or to an adult. Please make sure that you bring your book to school each day. This could be a book from home or one you have borrowed from school - make  sure you choose something that interests and excites you! 


The following website has lots of brilliant ideas to inspire you:



In Year 5, we would like all children to participate with our fun and interactive Reading Eggs programme both at home and at school. All children should be encouraged to enjoy 30 minutes of Reading Eggs at home every week, including one reading lesson. Please feel free to extend your learning for even longer! Your teacher will be able to see all of your hard work. Play games, complete puzzles, read stories, write your own stories and complete reading and spelling lessons all whilst earning awards and styling your own Reading Egg character. 


You will find your login details in your purple homework book. Quick, log in now to start the fun!
