Dear Parents/Carers, 


I would like to welcome you to the Year 5 class page. On this page, you will find lots of information about our topics and all of the information you need about life as an owl! 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am so excited to be working with your children for another year and I am sure they will have a wonderful time in Owls Class.

Useful information


  • We have PE on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Please help us to remember our PE kits on these days. We are also allowed to bring a roll on deodorant, if we need it!
  • Homework is sent out on a Friday. We will get both Maths and English every week. We will also get a spelling list to learn, based on the rules we have learnt during the week. This is due back on Wednesday so it can be marked for the following week. 
  • Please encourage us to read as much as possible at home. This could be our bugclub book, our library books or just a book we enjoy reading!
