Together we care, together we learn and together we grow

Welcome to Year Five!

A very warm welcome to all the parents and children. I am very excited about the new term, and hope you are too! 

This page contains information about the topic we are learning about in school and the different activities that we are going to be covering during the term. Each term the page will be updated with the latest information and a brief overview of the learning that has taken place. I have also included information on the weekly routines that take place over the week such as, guided reading, spellings and homework arrangements to help you organise your week.

I hope that you find the information on this page useful and if you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to pop in and see me at the end of the school day or contact me via the messages book located at the front office.

Guided Reading

Each week the children take part in a focused guided reading session with the class teacher. We will work together in this session to read extracts of text and develop our deduction and inference skills through specific and targeted questions. A follow-up activity will take place the next day to consolidate the children's learning.

In Key Stage Two, we encourage parents to continue to read with their children regularly and write comments in the child's reading diary.

P.E Lessons

Two P.E. sessions take place throughout the week in Year 5.  P.E. lessons usually take place on a Tuesday and Thursday. However, due to timetabling changes these lessons may alter. Therefore, please ensure that your child brings their P.E. kit with them on Monday morning and they will take them home on Friday afternoon.

During the Winter months, it is advisable that children bring with them warmer clothes for outdoor sessions.

Please ensure that all P.E. clothing is labelled clearly, to ensure that all items are returned to the rightful owner!


Homework is set on a regular basis in Year 5. All children will receive spellings and either a Literacy or Numeracy homework each week. The homework will outline clearly when the homework has been set and the homework task. Homework and spellings are handed out every Friday afternoon and are to be returned the following Friday.

Learning log homework is set on a half termly basis. This homework will pose a question for the children to research and answer. The children can present their answer in any form that they wish. If children do create powerpoint presentation, they can be e-mailed to the office on admin@littleleighprimary.cheshire.sch.uk
