Growing to Succeed



Your class teachers are Miss Wetherill and Mr Armstrong.

UKS2 is supported by Miss McDermott, Miss Goodwin and Mrs Mountain.

Here you will find useful information about our classes, as well as photographs sharing what we have been doing in school.


PE Days

PE days are Thursdays and Fridays.

We will be aiming to run the fun run (formerly mile run) wherever possible - it would be great if your child could have suitable footwear available in school each day.



Signed by parents over the weekend and by the class teacher on a Monday each week in class assembly.

Please feel free to use your child's planner as a means of communication if you would like to pass on any messages to their class teacher.



Homework will continue to be given out on a Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday. If your child is unable to complete this at home they will have the chance to do so in school on Monday and Tuesday break and lunchtimes in homework club.

Homework club will take place in year 5 classrooms.

Moving forward we will be setting homework on the website Mirodo. If your child is unable to access a computer or tablet at home, they are able to use these in homework club or request paper copies of homework.

Usernames and planners can be found in the back of your child's planner.




Children in Year 5 are expected to spend 1 hour on their homework each week. This will consist of spelling practise and a Maths homework relating to the work covered in class that week. It is expected that your child reads for at least 10 minutes each night as part of their homework from school. It would be really beneficial if you could encourage your child to do this. Please evidence this in your child's reading record (found in their planner).



Children are welcome to take books from the school library as well as our class library and read them at home as well as being given opportunities to read in school time. Every child has been given a colour banded book and is expected to have one of these books in their bag or school drawer in addition to any other books that they are reading.

Bug Club is up and running and login details can be found in children's planners. We will be using Bug Club in guided reading sessions, and children will occasionally be set grammar and spelling activities to complete as homework.



Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Wednesday. We are using the Read, Write, Inc. programme where spelling patterns and rules are focused on each day ready to test the following week. These spellings are recorded in planners to ensure that children have the opportunity to practise any they are still unsure of by the end of the week.


Predominantly, we will be practising spellings from the year 5/6 N.C spelling list. The full list of year 3/4 and 5/6 words can be found on the spelling platform of the school website. All children should have access to this, login details can be found in their school planners.


 Autumn 1

In Science we are looking at Space! We spent the afternoon researching and learning all about the phases of the Moon. We used Oreos to help us understand that the Moon is always spherical but what we see is the Sun's light reflecting off its surface. The best part was getting to eat our posters once we had successfully made them!

This week we were visited by the NSPCC. We learnt the child line number by heart and discussed when and why we would ever use it. Year 5 represented the school brilliantly!
