Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 Summer

Welcome from the Year 5 team. We've got plenty of exciting learning experiences planned for you all and can't wait to get started!

There are lots of ways in which you can support children's learning outside of school. All Fairholme children have access to Purple MashMyMaths (online maths homework) and Times Tables Rock Stars for free! Please ask your class teacher if you do not have log-in details for any of these sites.

We've also put together a list of brilliant websites and books, full of fun games, quizzes and facts, that you may want to look at with your children.  They're a great way to spend a fun half-hour that could also help to build on their learning in class.

Age 9-11: Books to read together at home
Page Hits: 03526

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each Tuesday.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.

In Year 5, homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.

We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy! 



We expect the children to read their school reading book out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week. Please sign, or put your initials on, the yellow homework sheet to confirm that this has been completed. Spellings and maths need to be completed at least twice a week. The week's spellings (in the children's spelling books) must be practised at least twice a week along with their Maths Passport. These also need to be signed for by an adult on the homework sheet.

Children should have their reading books in school every day. 

Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested the following Friday.  Homework will be checked at the end of each week.
