Welcome to the home of Year 5, where we focus on developing positivity – there is something good to be found in every day and resilience – our ability to bounce back.
Our teachers are Mrs Duckworth and Miss Wilson (Class 11) and Miss O’ Sullivan (Class 12) and we are lucky enough to have the help and support of three fabulous learning support assistants – Mrs Gillin, Mrs Birchall and Mrs Roberts.

Weekly Homework (overview and useful links)
Homework will be set using several online platforms and children’s logins will have been sent by ParentMail. Homework set last week (week ending Friday 11th) included spellings, times tables, My Maths and reading. As we are encouraging reading for pleasure we have set two class e-books for the children to share with you at home, please work through them at a pace which is suitable for your child, you might like to take turns reading or focus on a chapter at a time.
Each week you can expect:
spellings and times tables – don’t forget to practice on TT Rockstars
weekly reading on Reading Planet
weekly Maths on My Maths
weekly English homework on Literacy Planet
New Literacy Planet – you should be able to find your homework easily now with the new version (you no longer need to click ‘LP Classic’). However, you will need to download the ‘New Literacy Planet’ app.

Both classes will have a swimming lesson on Monday morning followed by their 2nd PE lesson during Monday afternoon, please ensure children come to school dressed in PE tops and shorts under black tracksuit bottoms/leggings with either a black tracksuit top/hoodie or their school jumper/cardigan and trainers. They should bring their swimming kit in a separate bag ready to take to their lesson.
We are currently unable to catch you on the door after school for a quick chat but please email the school office should you need to contact us.
