Miss Laverty

Welcome to Year 5


We have had a fantastic start to the Autumn term! We have been exploring the Victorians in History and delving into Space in Science.

The class page will give you the opportunity to browse through photographs and updates related to Year 5.


Each week children will be set a piece of Maths and English homework which will consolidate learning from the week. Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be completed and returned by the Wednesday.


As well as this, weekly spellings will be given on a Friday to be learnt for a spelling test on a Wednesday. Although we will be learning and practising the spellings at school please could you encourage your child to practise at home aswell.


The expectation in Year 5 is that children should be reading at home at least 3 times a week, please can you ensure your child is keeping a log of their reading in their planner.

If you have any questions you are welcome to come and see me after school or you can make an appointment with the office.
