St Francis C of E Primary School

Love Faith. Love People. Love Learning.

Year 5





Each month, Year 5 will be thinking about a key quote and how we can all learn from it.








I've travelled the world twice over,

Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,

Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks

All with one library ticket...
To the wonderful world of books.




A note for parents:




Each child has a specific 'Change Day' each week in Year 5.

1) Remember: We are 'Reading for Comprehension' - please talk about your book with family members to ensure you understand what you have read!
2) You must put your book into the 'Changing Basket' for our support staff during morning registration if you want it to be changed!

Books are changed by lunchtime - if you forget you may not have an opportunity to change the book that day!



Sent home on a Thursday.

Due back in school no later than the following Tuesday.


Weekly Homework overviews will be sent home in your child's homework folder.


Where possible in Year 5, Homework should be completed as independently by your child as possible.  Homework is intended to reinforce and build upon learning objectives covered during our school week and is explained in detail as it is distributed; your child should be able to complete the tasks set on their own.


In addition to weekly Reading Books and Spellings, in Year 5 it is the expectation that children will complete some time on Mathletics (including Live Mathletics) to support their learning independently. Homework expectations will be made clear with a sheet in folders each week.
