Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to our Year 5 page! It is fantastic to see all our pupils settling well into school life and our classrooms are buzzing with positive interaction, curiosity and incredible learning. Year 5 should be very proud of the way that they have shown increasing maturity and independence whilst getting used to many new routines and making new friendships. We are looking forward to a very exciting year ahead!

Curriculum and Learning
Here are some of the key learning tools we use.
Learning Journey - where is your child's learning going?
Knowledge Organiser - what knowledge will your child acquire?
In year 5, pupils have a number of leadership opportunities they can apply for to develop their
independence and responsibility.
Homework and Expectations
Below is our weekly homework expectations along with equipment and uniform.
In Autumn, we will be be introducing the range of online homework tasks gradually over the first few weeks of the term to allow pupils to become familiar with how to log in and complete each website.
Children will be expected to complete reading, TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed and maths and English Century online homework each week. You can find a help guide for logging in to Century below. Mrs Harris' maths set will not have Century maths homework; they will have a paper homework book with activities to complete instead.
All homework set can be found on the child's Epraise planner.
We run Year 5 homework club on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes to give children the time, space and laptops to complete their homework. This is a great opportunity for children who have busy lives outside school or simply require teacher guidance to support them.
Pupils and parents have access to Epraise and our Witton Website. See below what they are used for and where we share key information.
