St. Clare’s Class (Year 5)



Welcome back to Year 5, I hope you had a lovely half term break and have come back ready to learn!  We have lots of exciting topics of learning ahead of us including: exploring different genres of writing, reading the Railway Children, multiplication and division facts, enjoying cricket, basketball and hockey, seasonal arts and crafts and much more! I do also hope you are having fun doing lots of creative activities for your learning log.


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:

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
