Year 5

Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mr Perree
Support Teacher: Miss Brown     Teaching Assistant: Mrs Williams



Year Five Class has adopted the British Value of 'Tolerance'.


Throughout the year, we will be looking for ways we can be more tolerant with each other

in school and at home, and how tolerance can be developed

to promote a positive culture within our society.

Just a note for parents and carers...

It is with great pleasure that I wish you all a happy 2017/2018 academic year, and express my delight in being able to teach your children. Over the next eleven months, we will be doing all that we can to ensure your children develop in all curriculum areas, as well as focusing on further developing personal, social and emotional skills. It is expected that school and home work in harmony to best support the learning and development of your children, encouraging regular extra work, and completion of all homework set. 

As always, if you have any concerns, or simply would like a chat about your child's learning, please do not hesitate to make an appointment via the School Office, where we can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.

I look forward to what's set to be a year of fun, activity and adventure.
Mr Joseph Perree 

Homework Schedule - Summer Term 2018


It is of importance that children begin to pace themselves, planning time and becoming responsible for organising themselves to complete set tasks, taking ownership of learning and becoming increasingly independent. As we are in our final term, children must be continuously practising their, to embed them into long-term memory, to carry forward learning into Year 6 and beyond.


Homework is expected to be completed as follows:

Monday - CGP English & Maths '10 Minute Workout' 
Tuesday - Comprehension (Retrieval and Vocabulary)

Wednesday - CGP English & Maths '10 Minute Workout'. Comprehension (Inference)

Thursday - Comprehension (Summary and Sequencing)

Weekends - CGP English & Maths '10 Minute Workout'.


* Spellings will be tested on Fridays. 

* Children should complete three CGP Year 5 Workouts each week, for both English and Maths, from now until the end of term. Once completed, they should be placed in your bag and brought into school every day, as we will mark in class, and use some for teaching.

* Times Tables and related division facts should be regular practice; revised for at least 10 minutes every night. Use TimesTablesRockstars to help (see Curriculum Support>Maths>TimesTables for link and guidance).

* Children should read every night, for no less than 20 minutes. (Don't underestimate how much children in Year5/6 enjoy reading with an adult - either reading or being listened to!)
