Welcome to the Year 5 information page.
Mrs Froud and I are thoroughly enjoying having the children back in class and learning again. We are so impressed at their positive attitudes to learning and enthusiasm in everything they do. Please find below some important information regarding life in Year 5. We aim to update it regularly to keep you as informed as possible as to what is going on in our class. If you have any questions please email me , firstname.lastname@example.org or give the office a call if you would like a callback. I am really looking forward to the coming year.
The following website contains a suggested reading list for Year 5 children.
See if you already have any of these books at home and try them out or maybe you could find some of them to buy online or listen to as audio books in places like ww.youtube.co.uk or Audible stories.audible.com (their children’s books are free for a month).
In Year 5 we place a lot of importance in learning our spellings. There is a strong correlation between being a good speller and being good at writing.
We have uploaded all the weekly spellings that we have covered in Year 5 so far, so you can revise the words your child still finds tricky. There is also documents with ideas of how to learn your spellings and examples of activities you can do to improve your spelling.
Fluency in times tables is vital in improving a lot of our maths skills. We would like the children to continue to practise their times tables knowledge. You can use a number of games, activities and even apps to help us with this task.
Please, use the links below to help your child practise their times tables at home:
