Year 5

Welcome to Class 5!


Homework is sent out each Wednesday to be completed and returned for the following Monday. 

The homework will also appear on this website in case any paper copies are mislaid. 


Spellings are in the spelling booklet which the children already have. 

A new list will be highlighted each week and will need to be learnt for a spelling test on the Thursday of the following week. 

Be aware that there may be some extra words added to the pre-printed list.


PE kits should be brought into school each Monday for the week ahead.

Please ensure all children bring a named water bottle into school each day.


On Monday 3rd April Year 5 are going on a school trip to Tatton Park with Year4 for an Anglo-Saxon day.

Further details of this visit will be shared after half-term but here is the link to the Tatton Park website for a sneaky peek of what we will enjoy


Please keep an eye on our class page as we will be updating it throughout the year!

Curriculum Plans for Reading, Writing, Mathematics and RE

Year 5 and Year 6 Curriculum and Expectations

With the new National Curriculum, the Department for Education has produced new expectations for the end of each curriculum year. These will replace the old system of levels and provide you as parents with a clear idea of what the children should be achieving at the end of the year.

Below you will find the expectations for Year 5  and Year 6 in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. The year 5 document that can also be downloaded provides year 5 expectations. We have also produced ‘deepening’ targets for parents to show you the targets that the children will be working towards if they have met all of the ‘expected’ targets to master their learning skills.

As a school we report your child’s progress against these end of year expectations at our parent evenings during the year.

The following terms will be used:

·         Your child is not on track to meet the end of year national expectations.

·         Your child is on track to meet the end of year national expectations .

·         Your child is on track to exceed the end of year national expectations.


Any extra support you can provide in helping your child or children to achieve these will benefit them greatly.
