Year 5

Welcome to the Year Five Hub page.

We are well into the new academic year and are working hard in the run up to Christmas. We have a wide range of activities planned including Children in Need, a Christmas Carol Concert and a 100 word Myth Competition.

Homework is still sent home on a Friday Night and we ask that you return your child’s completed homework book to school on the following Wednesday.

Please look at the information below to find out what a child is expected to know by the end of Year Five. This Year is crucial in us starting to get your child ready for the transition to Year Six and then secondary school.

If you have any questions about how your child is doing at school, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Mrs Harris
