Excellence and happiness for all

Year 5

The Year 5 Class Teachers are Miss Matthews and Miss Kirkwood.


Ms Dolan and Mrs Eglin teach Mrs Cook’s class for part of the week. Mrs Shave teaches Mr Marshall’s class for part of the week. Mr Latty and Mrs Hannam also support us in the classroom.

Please feel free to catch the class teacher at the end of the day, or make an appointment with them. You can leave them a message either on Class DoJo or in your child’s home/school book.


We cover National Curriculum 2014 objectives, and have several cross-curricular themes throughout the year:


Each week your child must:

Read aloud at least 4 times
Complete mymaths.co.uk homework or English homework (due in each Tuesday)
Practise times tables
Practise the given spellings
Occasional Talk Homework

In addition to this, they will be given a creative project to complete. They will have one to complete each half term. Your child will have a choice of project to complete and will be provided with a grid of different options to choose from, linked to our theme.

These tasks should be completed in addition to other home-learning: revision for weekly spelling and tables tests; regular reading of books; weekly maths activities set on mymaths.co.uk  and the half-termly Talk Homework for our Big Writes.


Maths Targets – these are based on Superhero Times Tables. Progression is as follows:

Superhero Tables Facts
Batman x2 x5 x10
Hawk Girl x3 x4
Thor x6 x7 x8
Black Widow x9 x11 x12
Superman All with division
Catwoman All with place value – HTU and tenths
Ironman 2 digits x 1 digit
Wonder Woman Fractions, decimals and percentages of quantities
