Year 5 2020 - 2021

The school is having the annual Identity Week this week. Over the week and the following weeks, children will have the opportunity to talk about themselves and what makes them unique – what it is to be ‘them’. Staff will be talking about our identity and things that are special to us. Normally, children would be able to bring things in from home but this year we are asking that this does not happen. Instead, if children can be supported in taking pictures of their ‘special items’ and parents can send them to our dedicated home-learning emails, listed below. Your child will be given a week in which they will be able to share. 


We have given the children 6 different usernames and passwords for various online resources. As a separate document below, you will find details of each website and what we are using them for. This information has also be sent via email to you.

Also below as a separate document, you will find this term's curriculum map for year 5. This gives you an idea of what your children will be finding out about. It would be lovely if you can talk about the learning that has already  taken place and what they are particulary enjoying.

A reminder that we start at the earlier time of 8:30am and finish at 2:55pm. PE will be on a Monday, so you need to wear your PE kit all day and school uniform on every other day. Please don't bring anything to school other than a lunch box (if required), coat and water bottle.

Every child has a reading book to keep at home - when they have finished the book, they can bring it back in to swap for another. Your child can also logon to Bug Club to have access to a range of books within their reading level online. There are no reading records at the moment due to covid restrictions, but we are reading individually in school and keeping records of this.

Children should know all their times tables by the time they enter Year 5, therefore, please make an effort to practise these regularly at home as we will be applying them within the Year 5 curriculum.

Some useful websites to help with learning times tables are:
