Welcome to Year 5!

Hello and welcome to Year 5’s class page. Our teacher is Mrs Myers and our teaching assistant is Mrs Culpepper with Mrs Whitaker working as a 1:1.


 The last year and a half have been very different and I'm amazed at how resilient and motivated the children who will enter Year 5 in September have been. Miss Buckle has told me how hardworking and engaged you have all been and I'm excited to be your teacher.

We work hard in Year 5 - the next two years are crucial in getting you ready for your next journey in education - high school! However; we will have fun and enjoy spending Year 5 together.

Important Information


Reading is incredibly important and your support in this learning process is vital.

10 Benefits of Reading

  1. Children who read often and widely get better at it – after all, practise makes perfect.
  2. Reading exercises our brain – Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain than for example, watching TV. Reading strengthens brain connections and builds new connections.
  3. Reading improves concentration.
  4. Reading teaches children about the world around them.
  5. Reading improves vocabulary and language.
  6. Reading develops a child’s imagination.
  7. Reading helps children to develop empathy – as children develop they begin to consider how they would feel if placed in certain situations.
  8. Reading is fun – dreaming with your eyes open!
  9. Reading is a great way to spend time together.
  10. Reading promotes achievement in all subjects.



Your child has been given an Oxford Reading Buddies password where additional reading resources can be found.




Your child will receive homework on a Tuesday and we ask for it to be returned by Friday.  Homework will reinforce your child’s learning and is therefore extremely valuable.


Your child has also been given passwords to Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash which they can access at home. Children can use Times Table Rockstars to assess their speed and accuracy when recalling their times tables and they can work on their ICT skills using Purple Mash. There are lots of other resources to be found on Purple Mash too, including games to help consolidate children's maths and English knowledge.






P.E is on Mondays and Fridays. Please ensure your child comes to school in a full P.E. kit (plain blue shorts, white T-shirt and pumps). If you prefer, please send your child to school in a tracksuit with their PE kit underneath.


If you have any questions or would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to ask.


 Thank you!
