St Francis C of E Primary School

Love Faith. Love People. Love Learning.

Year 5

​​​​​In Year 5, we will be looking at different topics each half term.


Click on the links below to see what will be covered. 

There are some links to websites below that will be useful throughout the year to help you (children and grown ups) with elements of our learning. 


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.





and Reading books 



Sent on Thursday 

To be returned on the following Tuesday


Homework will include:

  • Weekly spellings to be learned. Children will be tested on these the following week on Tuesday
  • A learning grid will also be sent home every half term 
  • (see Autumn 1 to download the document) 
    • Reading 


1) 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!


E2) Remember: We are 'Reading for Comprehension' - please talk about your book with family members to ensure you understand what you have read!



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.
