Mr Bentley

In Year 5 we exercise our Learning Powers each and everyday to become the very best versions of ourselves we can be.  We work hard, knowing when it is possible to develop our independence and when we need to ask for help.  We also follow in the footsteps of Jesus by supporting one another along our school journey together.  On this class page, we will demonstate our work in action throughout the year and look forward to sharing with you what we achieve in school everyday.

Year 5 LTP outlines what we will cover this year in each subject

One Way System for Y5

  • What homework do Y5 complete?

    Homework will reinforce the key skills of reading, spelling and maths fluency.  The children will be given homework every Friday and it is to be returned by the following Friday. Each week the children will be expected to complete:

    • a Spelling Shed activity
    • home reading comprehension
    • TTRS fluency practice
  • What days are PE in Y5?

    PE takes place on a Monday and a Friday.  Currently, children should only bring in their PE kit on these days. 

  • What can I do to help?
    • Please support you children with their homework and listen to them read as often as possible. 
    • All children have access to the secure school website, which is free for them to use and is packed full of educational games and activities for them to work through. 
    • They are able to access the school BugClub (via the website ActiveLearn) which is a library of eBooks for them to read and complete related questions.  This will supplement everything they learn in school and can be accessed on any platform.
    • They also have access to Times Table Rockstars which is an online platform aimed at improving their speed and accuracy in recall of times table facts.
    • Finally, the children have access to Spelling Shed which is a great online platform to encourage them to practise their weekly spellings through a range of games and activities.

Early Childhood Memories

This week we have been reading Ronald Dahl's biography 'Boy' and in preparation for writing their own, the children have been thinking about some their early childhood memories.  Below are a selection of some of them.
