Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Welcome to Miss Lansley's Year 5 class! We are supported by Mrs Calcutt, Miss Bruzgo and Miss Burkin this year. On this page you will find useful information about our work and routines, as well as ways in which you can help your child at home. Check back often and scroll down to see what we've been learning!


General Reminders:


Homework - Your child must complete one activity from their homework grid each week in their green homework book. Homework grids will change each half term. Homework should be handed in each week by Friday. Homework should not be handed in late. It is the children's responsibility to look after their homework books and not lose them.

On some occasions the children may receive extra maths or English homework to boost their learning. This should also be handed in on a Friday, unless the children are told to hand it in on a different day.


PE - For the first half term PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday. Children should have their P.E kit in school all week in case of extra P.E sessions or changes to their regular P.E sessions. Until Christmas, some children will take part in swimming lessons on a Friday afternoon.


PE kit should consist of:

  • White t-shirt or polo shirt
  • Black or navy blue shorts or leggings
  • Pumps or trainers 
  • Tape for earrings if they cannot be removed.


Reading - Please make sure that your child reads every night for around 15-20 minutes (as far as is possible). Fluency in reading helps children to build their understanding of the world, their comprehension, vocabulary and develops empathy for others. If you can, listen to your child read and ask them questions about the text. Reading can be from many sources, not just their reading scheme book. 


Times tables - The children should continue to practise their times tables at home as often as they can. A secure knowledge of their times tables will help children in all areas of maths. Games are a good way of practising times tables and there are plenty online. Repetitive chanting, songs and quickfire questions are easy ways to practise them too. In Year 5 the children should also learn their square numbers up to 12 x 12 and prime numbers up to at least 20.
