Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year Five page. Here, we aim to share useful information that you can refer back to. We also want to celebrate and share the children’s learning with you.
What’s happening and when?
Swimming – Monday
PE – Tuesday – Children can come into school in their PE kit for the day
Spellings – uploaded to Teams each half term with all spellings for each week of that half term.
Maths homework – uploaded onto Teams every Friday and is due the following Friday. Please ensure your child brings their reading record to school every day where we will change it if they have finished it at home.
Here are a list of some of the websites that you can use in Year 5.
In Year 5, we use Microsoft Teams as our virtual classroom. If you have any difficulty logging on then please e-mail the office at email@example.com and we will generate a new password.

Year Five Spellings
Year 5 Statutory Spellings
Below are the Year 5/6 Statutory spellings. These are covered over the year in the children’s weekly spelling tests but any additional practise will help the children become confident with the Year 5/6 spellings. Repetition and application is key when it comes to children remembering their spellings. Thank you for your ongoing support with this.
These spellings can also be found in the back of your child’s reading records.
