Over the course of the year, there will be other adults working in and around Year 5 to provide support where necessary.

If at any point throughout the year, you are concerned about your child, or would like a friendly chat with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher on Dojo or by e mail. We are always happy to help and appreciate the ongoing support we receive from families.

Your child needs to bring a coat, a lunchbox and a water bottle everyday.  

PE will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for all Year 5 classes. The children should wear their PE kit to school on these days, not school uniform.

Each term we will issue a knowledge organiser, outlining an overview of the topics that we are teaching so you can also support the children with their learning at home.


We would really appreciate your help this year with the following on a weekly basis:

  • listening to your child read, and asking them questions about what they have read. 
  • recall of times tables (up to 12 x 12)
  • spelling tasks on Spelling Shed
  • Weekly maths homework on FRECKLE 

All children have a Tackling Tables, Spelling Shed and FRECKLE maths passwords, which they can access at home and complete extra tasks, if they wish to. 

Please find below important documents for more information
