Welcome to the Year 5 class page.

Year 5 Routines


Reading – We will listen to your child read in Guided Reading Groups at least once per week. Your child may also read to an adult on a one to one basis during the week.  Each day your child will bring home their independent reading book. Your child is expected to read for at least 20 minutes each day, to support this we would encourage you to read with your child daily and complete an entry in their Reading Record so that we know reading has been completed.  They will be able to change the book as often as they want as long as it has been signed at the back of their book.

Spellings – Spellings will be sent home on a Monday and they will be checked on the following Friday in a spelling test. Your child will need to bring their spelling book into school every day as they will have an opportunity to practise spellings.

Homework – Homework books will be sent home on Thursdays.  The work that is sent home will be a mixture of Topic, English and Maths work.  Please make sure that you return the books to school by the following Tuesday so we have time to mark the work before issuing the next piece of homework.

PE – PE will be on Wednesday and Friday.  Please make sure that your child has a white t-shirt, dark shorts and plimsolls. On a Wednesday, PE will be led by a PE coach.

Staffing – Mr Braddish is the Class Teacher and will be supported by Mrs Wray.

Year 5 end of year exit point. A fun (and messy) time had by all. Thank you to all the parents who attended, your support is greatly appreciated. 

The Houses of Parliament  – We had an amazing day in London. We had a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament,  we met our MP Victoria Atkins. After lunch, we visited the British Museum and had a fantastic time exploring ancient civilizations. The children had a fantastic time as did myself and Mrs Jones. The children had a special day and were a credit to the school.

Year 5 have been using protractors to find the type and size of angles. We had lots of fun investigating and using our problem solving skills.


Kwik Cricket fun at Louth today. All 3 teams were exceptional and were a credit to the school.  Well done year 5!

This Term, we have been reading The Nowhere Emporium and it has inspired some fantastic writing. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.


As part of our Making New Materials topic we have been looking at the work of the surrealist artist Reni Magritte. Here are a few examples from some budding artists.

Please listen to our radio show about all things Roman.

In December, Year 5 went to Lincoln Ice Rink to sharpen our skating skills.



At the end of the term Year 5 showed off their hard work with an amazing exit point. A great time was had by all!
