Welcome to Year 5

In Willow class, we are: Miss Piponides (class teacher), Miss Godwin (teaching assistant) and Miss Chantrey (Wednesday morning).

PE Kits

PE is every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure PE kits are in school. PE kits are blue/black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt and plimsolls/trainers. Please label your children's PE kits with their names.PE kits can stay on pegs during the week and then be taken home to be washed over the weekend.

Superstar Readers

Children are expected to read every day. It's vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. Parents/Carers/Children in Year 5 are encouraged to sign in their 'Organisers' when they have read. Children will be rewarded every half term if they have read 5 or more times a week. Diaries are monitored every Monday.

Times Tables

Children must keep practising their times tables cards so that they can complete Firbeck's times tables system.


Spellings are given out every Thursday and children must write spelling sentences for each word in their 'Thinking Skills' books. Children will be tested the following Thursday and spelling sentences must be handed in by then too.

Homework Website Links

Children have usernames and passwords to Mathletics and Reading Theory where they can practise their comprehension and math skills further.
