The Links Primary School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5







Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year for the children and we do expect them to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. The children are required to bring their reading books and homework diaries to class every day. Homework diaries are a wonderful tool to send messages between home and school and also encourage the children to develop the skills to become increasingly independent learners.

It is important that all children continue to read to and discuss texts with an adult on a daily basis. Ideally, children should read for ten minutes every night and at least once during the weekend (Friday to Sunday) and their homework diary signed. Below, you will find a link with helpful questions to ask your child whilst they are reading.

The children need to know their times tables off by heart. Confidence with Times Tables helps with a wide range of other maths topics and this only comes with practise. The following websites are brilliant for practise at home



PE takes place on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their kit including PE shoes in school.

Homework will be given out each Friday. Homework should be returned by the following Tuesday to be marked.

Spellings will be set on Monday and tested on Friday.
