Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


We are going to have a wonderful year this year! The adults in our class will be me (Mrs Backhouse) and Mrs Errington snd we are so excited to work with you all.

Here is a little bit of information about us.

Mrs Backhouse: I have worked in school for 6 years, having started off my time in Year 5 before moving to Year 2 and I am so excited to be back working in Year 5 and be working with you all. Outside of school, I enjoy walking and relaxing at home with my two cats, Jasper and Evie.

Mrs Errington:





Class Expectations

In year 5, we are following the same high standards, rules and routines, that we have been following throughout the school. However, as we are now in upper Key Stage 2, we are expected to be role models for the younger children and to display a high level of independence and self motivation.




PE kits should be brought to school at the beginning of a half term, to be taken home and the end and washed. In order to promote independence, we encourage parents to write names in all of children's things so that children can be responsible for looking after their things whilst they are in school. PE is on a Tuesday afternoon.


Forest School

Forest school for Year 5 is on a Thursday afternoon. As this happens weekly, whatever the weather, we ask that children dress appropriately in clothing that you do not mind getting dirty.




It is encouraged to read with your children every night and where possible, to talk about what has been read so that children get into the habit or answering questions about books which will help with their comprehension skills.



Words ending in -able e.g. dependable, enjoyable, vegetable
Words containing 'ei' e.g. ceiling, receive, caffeine

Words containing 'ough' e.g. bought, although, cough

Words with silent letters e.g. lamb, doubt, island
