Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Your Teachers are Mrs V Harris (5H, Year Group Leader), Miss S Barry (5B) and Mr J Lovell (5L). Also working with Year 5 will be Mrs T Walsh (HLTA). We are supported by Mrs L McGinley.


In Year 5, homework is set every Thursday and expected to be completed by the following Tuesday. Your child will be set Spelling and Maths homework  on a weekly basis. 

Children are also expected to read at least 5 times a week for a minimum of 15 minutes each time. This must be recorded and signed by an adult in your child's Reading Record and handed back to your child's class teacher every Tuesday. 


Thank you for your support.

The Year 5 Team.

Please be aware the children should now be completing their homework on Google Classrooms. If your child needs any support accessing the homework, please contact your child's class teacher.
