Year Five

Hello, and Welcome to Year 5!

Summer is coming! What an amazing year we have had so far!

As the sunshine starts to give us more glorious days, and we count down to being the oldest in the school, we have a busy Summer term of work in Year 5.

I have loved teaching this class this year and will be making sure I enjoy every moment of the final few weeks; hopefully the class will too!

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask myself or Ms Raza. You can also reach me on Class Dojo if you have any comments or queries.

Additional Information

Accelerated Reading Toggle

Year 5 is a fantastic year to really push your child’s reading. As the vocabulary grows, more books become accessible to read and a real love of reading different types of books can form.

Children should be reading at home daily and we will be tracking reading performance using Accelerated Reader, which the children are aware of. The website can be found here.

To access the AR log in page for our school. The children should be able to log in and quiz.

Homework Toggle

Homework will be given out every Friday in Literacy and Maths to be brought in on Monday. This is compulsory as it will be as we start to think about transition to the children’s next school. Please make sure it is completed over the weekend.

There will also be a piece of homework set in the week, this will be posted onto Class Dojo with the deadline and information needed.

Junior Jam Toggle

We are excited to continue our partnership with a company called Junior Jam, which offers music, drama and performing arts to all the children. Year 5 will have Junior Jam sessions on Monday afternoon, and children also have the option of an afterschool club. This term in Junior Jam we have been using the ukuleles.

Timestable Rockstars Toggle

Every weekend there will be a class competition on TTRockstars. This will help improve mental arithmetic and times tables fluidity. It will often also be set as a required homework. Please encourage TTRockstar use.

Online Resources Toggle

Remember that there are lots of resources and learning activities online that children can always access.


Here are a few good ones, however there are so many more excellent online resources.
