Year 5

Welcome to Year 5. We hope this page is helpful in setting out a few events, dates and costings you can expect whilst your child is in Year 5.  Hopefully having notice of these dates, will ensure you are able to clear your diary and book time off work if needed, as it would be lovely if all of our parents and carers could attend all of these events.

Over the summer we have enjoyed planning all the curriculum and enrichment activities that your children will enjoy over the coming year. Topics we will cover in Year 5 are:


Autumn term


Beast Creator

Spring Term


Summer term

Off With Her Head



Our PE days are: Tuesday (Autumn term)

                              Wednesday and Thursday (Spring and Summer term)

Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school on these days.

Indoor PE kit: yellow t-shirt, blue shorts

Outdoor PE kit: yellow t-shirt, blue shorts, tracksuit bottoms, tracksuit top and trainers

We expect the children to remove any ear studs and watches.


It has been lovely to see the children come back looking so smart in their school uniform. Please continue to support us in ensuring your child is coming into school with the correct uniform, shoes and equipment. It is also very helpful if all items of uniform are named, so if pieces of clothing are left out/lost they can be reunited with their owner as quickly as possible. As a quick reminder: winter uniform begins in the second half of autumn term.


The children will receive maths, topic and spelling homework every week. The children will receive maths homework on a Wednesday. This is due in on the following Monday. The children will receive Topic and Spelling homework on a Friday. Spelling is due back on Monday and Topic on Wednesday.

The children are expected to read every day and have their contact book signed by an adult.




To enhance learning children will be invited to join trips to:
