Welcome to Year 5! - Croeso nôl blwyddyn 5!


Please see the Spring Term Snapshot below for an overview of our learning journey.



This half term PE will be held on a Friday. Please can the children come to school dressed in their PE kit on Friday. PE kit consists of tracksuit bottoms/shorts/ leggings, a t-shirt (preferably the colour of their house), a hoodie if the weather requires it and trainers.



All homework tasks will be posted on Google Classroom and an email with the details will be sent. This term the homework is a research and writing project that will culminate in the children giving their own 'I Have a Dream' inspired speeches on a topic they are passionate about. They will write their speeches at home and will be given support in school and will use notes to help them perform their speech in front of their class.

As ongoing homework throughout the year we would encourage the children to focus on learning their times tables at speed to help with their Big Maths Learn It challenges. We would also encourage the children to read regularly including their weekly reading books.



After school clubs

Children in Year 5 are able to join the school choir. This club is run by Mrs Holcombe every Tuesday from 3.30-4.30pm. 

Mr Gunthorp runs a Year 5 football club on Thursdays from 3.30-4.15pm.
