Homework will continue to be handed out on a Monday and is to be handed in on a Thursday.

Children will get both Literacy and Numeracy homework throughout the week which incorporate skills they have been learning in class.

They will also get spellings, times tables and reading which they should practice each night for their test on Friday.

Thursday night homework will be ICT homework or Mathletics.

Please feel free to complete homework however you wish or what suits your family, but a rough guide is as follows:

Monday - Master Your Maths

Tuesday - Literacy

Wednesday - Master your Maths

Thursday - Mathletics/ICT/Read at Home

Reading, Spellings and Times Tables are to be completed each night.

Thank you so much for all your support at home with homework.



This year we are going to be VERY BUSY! We have lots to learn in our first year in KS2 and we will have lots of fun whilst doing it!


In literacy we follow the Read Write Inc Comprehension Modules. These greatly improve children's reading, inference, literal retrieval and writing skills. These lessons will take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

On a Monday and Friday, children will be learning about a specific genre. Through this genre, we learn about a range of grammar skills and how to apply these independently in our writing.


In Numeracy, we follow the Power Maths Write Rose Edition Scheme. This is a wonderful scheme, which teaches all Year 5 Maths skills in practical and relatable topics. 

We also have a big push in Year 5 on learning all our times tables (up to 12x). These are such important number facts to learn, and once learned can be applied throughout the Maths curriculum. 



In Year 5 we follow the Grow in Love Programme which has lots of lovely stories and we supplement these with information about feast days too. We will be working closely with Fr. Declan throughout the year.


World Around Us:

This year we will be studying;

  • Mighty Me
  • Energy
  • The Egyptians
  • Natural Disasters

These exciting topics will mean there will be lots to keep us busy and lots of cross curricular links to enjoy. Topic work is so much fun- look out for updates of our work on the website.


Personal Development and Mutual Understanding:

In Year 5 we follow the Living, Learning, Together resources provided by CCEA as well as the PATHS programme which allows us to deliver the PDMU curriculum in a fun and exciting way. 

This year we will be participating in Roots of Empathy, where we will get to learn all about our feelings by watching a baby- we are so lucky because it is such a special programme.

We are also following the PATHS programme to further develop these skills. Look out for all the compliments!! We're even receiving training to become 'PATHS PALS'! 



IPad/Computer time is every Monday and Wednesday! We will be working very hard this year to complete all of our I.C.T tasks through CCEA. We are looking forward to seeing what they think of our work.



We will have P.E. every Tuesday and Friday. Look out for photographs on our website. Please bring the appropriate P.E. kit on these days.


The Arts:

All of the Arts will be delivered through our World Around Us topic. We are also looking forward to Choir lessons with Mrs Toner, Ukulele lessons with Miss Nugent and Violin lessons with Mrs Strawbridge.

This is going to be a brilliant year and we are all looking forward to working and learning together. We have lots to do and have a beautiful classroom- we are so proud of all the work that goes on- keep an eye on this page to see what we are getting up to.


The door is always open and a very warm welcome from Year 5 awaits all who visit… come and see us anytime!
