Notices & Reminders

F&B Friends AGM and Macmillan Coffee Morning - 8:45 to 9:45am on Friday 26th September in the Studio.

All welcome so please come along!


Homework has now been uploaded onto the Homework section and the children have all been set tasks to complete on Mathletics. Please let us know if you have any trouble accessing either the homework or Mathletics tasks.

Many thanks,

Miss Samantha Howes and Mrs Catherine Reeve. 



We will be sending homework home with the children by the end of the week and a digital copy will also be available on the 'Homework' section of our class page. 

During this term, the staff will be reviewing the award system for homework.  In order to give this the time that it deserves and to do a thorough job, we will continue with the current system for this term, with one small change.  We will be introducing a ‘Highly commended’ award which will take into account the effort that a child has put into their homework even if they have not completed all of the activities required to receive a bronze, silver or gold award.  We hope that the information on the homework sheet is clear, but if you have any further questions, then please ask. 

A useful homework tracker has been uploaded to the 'Homework' section. 

Our mid-term review will be on: Tuesday 30th October.

Our final hand-in date will be: Friday 30th November.

I've re-uploaded the spelling lists below - hopefully they will work now :).

Welcome to the Year 5 class page.

We hope that you are all having a fantastic summer break and are looking forward to returning to school on Wednesday 5th September. 

Parents, you may have seen that we have our Class Information Meeting scheduled for Thursday 13th 08:45-09:00 in the school hall. We hope to see as many of you there as possible but any key messages from the meeting will be uploaded onto this page so please don't worry if you are unable to make it. 

If you are looking for inspiration, there is a 'Brilliant Book' list in the files section below which gives examples of recommended reading for Year 5 children. I have also uploaded the Years 3-6 spelling lists for anyone looking to revise or learn these. 


Enjoy the rest of your summer break and we will see you very soon. 

Miss Samantha Howes and Mrs Catherine Reeve.
