Supporting Learning at Home

In year 5, the children are expected to progress towards being confident and independent learners. We recognise the extremely important role parents play in their child’s education and believe that parental support at home with homework and projects are essential in helping children to achieve in education.
The children are given an hour of maths and English homework each week, as well as spellings to learn and a reading record to fill in.
We hope the children read widely and for pleasure, to help them the children will always have a reading book borrowed from the class library.

Year Five Expectations

In all subjects, the year 5 children are given a teacher assessment. This happens throughout the year to ensure all children are making progress. The children’s attainment is measured using the bands below. The end of year 5 expectation is 5S.The children in year 5 are then assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.
