Welcome to Year 5!
We would like to tell you all about Year 5 and the exciting things we do. We will also be using Parenthub to keep you updated about some of the things we have been doing.
Year 5 - where effort will always bring reward
The Upper Key Stage Two journey begins in Y5 where our school citizens are developed into motivated learners able to take charge of their learning environment.
Throughout the learning, the core subjects of Mathematics, English and ICT link in to all the other areas.
Science, Humanities teach us about our world, while the Artsmark Gold principles underpin the creative subjects of Art, Music and Drama.
New languages, new perspectives and new physical achievements all add to the unique educational experiences in our multi sensory classroom.
We really hope this information will give you a whistle-stop tour of our fantastic work and we look forward to working together for the rest of the year.
Best wishes from all in Y5

Here are a few suggested learning resources that the children can access at home:
An online version of the numbers game from Countdown. There is no timer so the children can practise using their number knowledge in a fun way.
A great resource which can help to improve the speed of calculations and knowledge of their times tables.
This is a great resource for recapping your mathematical knowledge. Our favourite page is the puzzle page.
This website is particularly good for checking mathematical processes as it contains a large number of video explanations and examples.
A fantastic resource for practising techniques used in the SATs arithmetic paper.
We have a new subscription to Times Tables Rock Stars which will help to improve tables skills. We hope you like it as much as we do!
