Reading in Year 5


In Year 5 your child will take part in a range of whole class, group and individual reading activities. In Year 5, children should be able to read with fluency, accuracy and understanding. They should be able to respond to a wide range of texts, including both fiction and non-fiction, referring to the text to support their views.


Reading is probably one of the most important skills your child will learn in primary school. Please help your child spend 10-15 mins reading/or being read to every day; it will help them become excellent readers, writers and thinkers. It's only a small amount of time but it will make a HUGE difference.

Thank you for your continuing support with your  child's reading.






   Times Tables   



In Year 5, children should be able to rapidly recall multiplication facts up to 10 x 10, their corresponding division facts and facts involving decimals. It is useful to learn the tables in the following order:





PE kits need to be brought in on a Monday and left in school all week. It should be taken home and washed on a Friday. The timetabled PE lesson will take place on Friday. As a reminder the PE kit is made up of: black plimsolls or trainers, a plain white t-shirt (no writing or pictures please) and plain shorts. Children should not be bringing football kits in for PE!

Year five will be swimming this term on Thursday mornings.
