Year 5 2016 - 2017

Mr Helsby

We would like to warmly welcome you all to Year 5 where we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead. Year 5 is a big step up to Upper Key Stage 2 and brings with it some great challenges for the children which we are sure they will tackle with great enthuasiasm! All support from home is welcomed and if you have any questions please feel free to visit our classroom at the end of the school day.

Mr Helsby and Miss Cafferty.

How can you help?

You can greatly help your child by asking them questions about the book they are reading; testing their understanding, encouraging them to investigate the meaning of words they are unsure of, writing a book review or by giving you a summary of the reading they have done that night. Every little helps!


In Year 5 the children are expected to be able to recall their times tables with great fluency and times tables are the foundation of the majority of the Maths curriculum. It is vital that the children can use their times tables quickly to help themselves to solve problems. You can help by asking them random times tables questions at any time of the day, even on the journey to school in the morning or over dinner, this quick fire approach would greatly benefit your child.


Each half-term the class will be assigned a project related to our class topic. The children are encouraged to research their topic in depth. Using the internet, watching documentarys and visiting the local library are all ways of broadening their knowledge of their focus topic.
