In our year 5 class, we pack plenty of learning into our day. We work hard and help each other to achieve our best. As well as covering a wide range of subjects, we always take part in plenty of problem solving, discussions and debates, all of which enhance our learning. Of course, we have lots of fun and laughter too!

Questions you may have:
How often should my child be doing homework?
Your child will be set homework on a Monday which must be completed by Thursday. It will consist of three challenges, which will be linked to the learning in class. In addition to these challenges, your child should take part in regular reading.
What if my child does not have much time for homework at home?
If your child struggles to complete their homework, they are more than welcome to attend the Tuesday or Wednesday homework club which starts at 8.15 am.
How can I help my child with reading?
Reading doesn't just have to happen in a school book. For example, you could spend some time reading instructions for a recipe or a game. You could encourage your child to read menus or street signs. The key is to help your child see that reading should be purposeful and enjoyable.
The question cards (on the right hand side of this page) will also really challenge your child's understanding of their reading.
