Please help your child to learn their new spellings and practise them further on Spelling Shed.



We expect Year 5 children to change their own reading books as often as possible, bringing their reading records in to school frequently to be checked by their class teacher.

We encourage you to read as much as you can - at least 20 minutes every day.  Ms Gava and Ms Harman are avid readers so please let us know any recommendations you might have.

Click here for an amazing list of reading books that we recommend for Year 5.

You can also visit The Book Trust and search for your own reading book based on your interests.  Enjoy!


Please check the Year 5 Google Classroom where homework is uploaded weekly every Friday.
