St. Clare’s Class (Year 5)



Welcome back Year 5!  I hope you enjoyed the Easter holidays and exploring Mathletics.

We have a very exciting and busy term ahead including the eagerly anticipated trip to the Isle of Wight!.

I'm looking forward to better weather so that we can get outside on the field more to play sports and also continuing our Art and D.T projects related to Ancient Greece.

In Maths we will be learning about area, perimeter, measurements and shapes and in Science we will be learning about plants.

Please note that this term's Learning Log title is 'Under the Sea' and it is due in on Monday 21st May ready for our showcase.


Homework Information

Homework will be given out every Friday to be returned every Thursday.  Your child will receive 3 pieces of homework per week.  Spellings are given out on a Friday and children are tested the following Thursday. 

A great iPhone/iPad app you can personalise by typing in their weekly spellings to make practising fun is:

                Squeebles Spelling Test


Times tables are tested on Thursday.  Children should practise their times tables facts regularly at home in order to progress.  At the end of Year 5 children must know all their tables up to 12 x 12

A useful website for practise is:


There are also excellent iPad apps available such as:

                Squeebles Times Tables

                10 minute a day times tables.


Please listen to your child read every night and thank you for your continued support with their spellings and times tables.
