Year 5

In Year Five, children are provided with a wide range of exciting opportunities and experiences to help them develop into mature and confident individuals.  We feel that this prepares them for the challenges of Year Six and ultimately secondary school.

Some of the many exciting events that we hope to run this year are:

  • Visiting Leicester Space Centre.
  • Activities with our Buddies.
  • Residential trip.
  • Stargazing Sleepover.

                                                    ... and much much more!

Things you need to know in Year 5:

Below are some important documents for Year 5. We have included copies of the homework and our most recent newsletter for your information below.  Keep checking back for information about forthcoming parents meetings and important dates.


English homework is given out at the start of the term and covers every week during that term. Homework should be handed in every Thursday. It is hoped that by handing out the homework at the start of the term it will help to promote flexibility.

Maths homework is set on a Monday and should be completed by Thursday.  Please note this may sometimes be via seesaw.

TTRockstars - we expect all children to complete at least 10 sessions a week

Reading expectations

We expect the children to read for 25 minutes per day in year 5 (the standard required for Renaissance Master Class). Reading diaries are checked and signed by their class teacher weekly. Please ensure that these are filled out at least four times per week.
