Year 5

Welcome to Year 5's Class Page!


A warm welcome to the children, parents and friends of Year 5 for 2019-20! 

We have had a start back with almost full attendance and everyone working hard!

It has been great to see you all looking refreshed after a great summer holidays! 

Thank you to those of you who have already sent in your £5 contributions for your Knowledge Based Curriculum folders and pencil cases - these are now ready and have been given out to those who have paid!

A huge thank you to those of you who have remembered to bring in your PE kits too!

This is a great start to the year!


The children have been given their new home-reading records and books. As always, these should be returned to school daily to enable us to change them and read with the children as frequently as possible. 


Weekly Timetables


As we are sure that you are aware, every minute of your child's education counts and that is certainly true at St Rose! We aim to have 100% attendance and punctuality so that no child misses out on any aspect of their learning. 

Below are the timetables that Year 5 follow so that you can see what learning you would miss if you were to be late or miss a day...


What are we doing next week?

Class wish!

"To remember the importance of teamwork and show our love of God through the way we contribute to our team."


This year, Year 5 decided that teamwork will be their key goal! We have looked at how teams are successful and how, when we work together, we can be more successful, work more efficiently, get more done and achieve more in less time!


Catholic Virtues 


This half term, our Catholic Virtues are Grateful and Generous.

We spent time thinking about how we can show and share these as members of Year 5. These were shared in our whole school reflection, but they are on our class prayer table in our classroom as a daily reminder of the promises we have made to God. 


We pray that we remember the importance of following God's teaching at all times and ask for His forgiveness when we make mistakes. 


We began our year by re-visiting the British Values! The children were reminded about what they are and why we, as a nation, are so fortunate to grow up and live in a place where we receive them! The children were able to talk about how we use and see them around our own school. 


The Values...

Individual Liberty


Rule of Law

Mutual Respect



Through prayer and meditation, we took the time to thank God for the privilege of these wonderful values that make our community so happy and safe!

With the change in the way that we are delivering the curriculum at St Rose, we have also updated the way we give out homework and expect it completed. Below is the Homework Challenge Grid that Year 5 will find in their Knowledge Organiser folders. 

There are daily activities that we expect to be done, Enrichment and Super Learning tasks, Home Learning tasks (one of your choice to be completed each week) and Extension tasks that will help you dig a little deeper into your learning. 

You will also find useful and important information at the bottom as helpful reminders!

I hope that you enjoy completing your homework as much as I enjoyed planning it!



This list, along with the Year 5 & 6 Statutory spelling list, will be in your Knowledge Organisers. 

But, if you happen to leave it at school, please find the lists for this half term below...
