Year 5 2021 - 2022

Mr Bannister



Welcome to our Year 5 class page!

Here you will find important information about our class as well as being able to find out what we have been learning about. Keep checking back to see what we have been up to in Y5!

Mr. Bannister is our class teacher, we are also extremely lucky to have Mrs Evans supporting in class. Mr Brown will be teaching us for PE on a Friday afternooon.



Water Bottles

Children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to school every day. We encourage the class to make sure they are hydrating throughout the day to keep minds active for our Upper Key Stage 2 learning.



Our P.E days are back to Tuesdays and Friday's this Summer half term, children come into school in their PE kit for the whole day to save having to get changed in school.


Book Bags

Book bags should come into school every day. It is important that home reading books are read at home. We hope that all the children will enjoy reading for pleasure.



Spellings will be given out every fortnight on Friday. Children should practise both at home and in school, in preparation for a weekly test every Friday.



Every Friday the children will be given a piece of Maths or English homework. It will always be revision of something they have learned in school. Every half term, there is also a special homework task where we choose how we wish to present our work, and it will be displayed in school. We will also be giving pupils access to ReadingPlus, there are five reading tasks and a vocabulary task each week. We will allow time for some tasks to be done in school time but encourage students to complete these tasks at home.


Basic Skills

The children are encouraged to practice their basic skills like handwriting and times tables at home. The children have logins for some programs we use in school e.g. TT RockStars, SumDog, etc. They are welcome to use these logins at home. Children still have acess to SeeSaw if they ever need to submit work from homw.


Other Notices

With restrictions lifting, our timetables have been altered. We come into school at 8.45 and finish at 3:15. Our lunchtime is 12:00 until 1:00, whilst our morning break is at 10:45. Children will be eating dinner in the Hall together with Year 3 and 4 and we will be doing Assemblies with Year 4 and 6 each morning. We will remain vigiliant with handwashing procedures and other measures and will make changes as appropriate to the ongoing situtation.
