Welcome to Year 5

This This year Mr Lomas, Mrs Neal and Mr Earl will be teaching in Year 5 and will be supported by Mrs
Welford, Miss Balcombe and Mr Wright.

In addition to the Y5 Guide for Parents/Carers which gives an outline of the curriculum, we give more details about what your child is learning in weekly home support task sheets.

In Y5 we encourage the children to start to do more independent research work. Following previous parental feedback we have decided to consolidate this into ONE project in the Summer term.  During this term, the children will be encouraged to produce an independent project linked with an aspect of the curriculum. Children can be encouraged to use a variety of support materials to help, for
example books, local library, family members with some knowledge, the internet or even family trips! Further information will be given later in the school year.

      A variety of clubs and activities are offered throughout the year.

      As your child progresses through school, more opportunities will become available.  In-school activities are announced during assembly or by your child’s class teacher.
